Novak Djokovic a five-time Wimbledon champion is now on his way to become an all-time major’s tennis champion if he is able to defeat Matteo Berrettini in the 2021 Wimbledon Finals on July 11, 2021. The match is to take place at the legendary All England Club in Wimbledon, London and if Djokovic wins, it will escalate Djokovic to equal the all-time men’s record of 20 major victories set by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
Djokovic is now one more victory away from retaining the crown he won in 2018 and 2019, and therefore equalling the all-time men’s record of 20 major victories set by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic is currently the number 1 ranking tennis player in the world. He is even considered to be one of the best tennis players to ever play the game. But did you know that Djokovic was challenged by the Audi Racecar team to see if their Audi race car was faster than the champion tennis players’ serve?
“Djokovic took the challenge and here’s what happened.”
Djokovic used a new HEAD Graphene Speed tennis racket and served the tennis ball at the exact same time that an Audi R8 LMS race car screamed past the starting line. As a result, the tennis ball crossed the finish line a split second before the Audi Racecar – leaving Djokovic undefeated once again.
Novak Djokovic has always had a love for cool cars. Over his 15-year championship career, he has been seen in many different vehicles. Likewise, he endorses major car brands such as Peugeot, Audi, and Mercedes.
He loves the idea of environmentally friendly cars and even owns a couple of EV’s (electric vehicles). He is often seen driving a Hybrid-Electric technology 508 Peugeot Sport which is a combination of an electric and engine.
Novak Djokovic’s complete car collection includes a Bentley GT, Mercedes Benz S500, Aston Martin DB9, Audi R8, Tesla Model X, BMW M55D, Fiat 500, Peugeot 508 Sport and has been seen in a Peugeot e-208 EV (Electric Vehicle).
TESLA MODEL X
As Djokovic is an EV enthusiast, we have been asked: “Does Novak Djokovic own a Tesla?” Well, yes Djokovic does own a Tesla.
As a matter of fact, someone recently took a picture of Djokovic getting in a Tesla Model X – Racket and all. (see picture above)
Djokovic’s relationship with cars also extends into endorsements. He has inked endorsement deals with auto manufacturers Mercedes-Benz and Peogout. As a result, Djokovic owns and drives the sponsor’s cars. Namely a Peugeot 508, top of the line, Mercedes-Benz 500s.

Djokovic has become a wealthy man over his professional tennis career, and along with that, a luxury lifestyle soon followed.
With earnings over $50 million dollars last year, and with a net worth of just under $150 million dollars, Djokovic has managed to build himself quite a collection of cars.
Beyond his affinity to electric vehicles, Djokovic does steer toward luxury cars. And though he is not a supercar fan, he has managed to build a car collection that includes luxury marques owned by the rich and famous.
In total, Novak Djokovic owns an Aston Martin DB9, a Bentley GT, a Mercedes Benz S500, an Audi R8, a Tesla Model X, a Peugeot 508 Sport, a BMW M55D, a Fiat 500, and has been seen in a Peugeot e-208 EV (Electric Vehicle)
ASTON MARTIN DB9
Djokovic married his high school sweetheart, Jelena Ristić, back in 2005. Since then they have had two sets of twins. Two identical boys, and two identical girls, so now he’s a family man.
As other cars make better family cars, the Aston Martin Martin DB9 is the car that offers an escape and peace and quiet. Out of all the cars in the Djokovic car collection, The Austin Martin DB9 is by far one of Novak Djokovic’s favorite cars.
This car is powerful, exquisite, and fast. Impressively, the Aston Martin DB9 sports a powerful 6.0 liter V12 engine that produces a whopping 540 hp. It launches the car from 0-60 in only 4.6 seconds. Moreover, it has a top speed of over 180 mph.
