Novak Djokovic (33 years old) was discovered intolerant to gluten in 2010 and then changed his diet. It is not the only change he experienced: he is also one of the tennis players who gave the most importance to meditation in his life.
After being champion in Monte-Carlo, Tsitsipas said that he began to pay attention to his breathing and to constantly perform exercises. Asked by ESPN Tennis after beating Kwon in Belgrade, Djokovic dedicated a few words to the Greek: “I am glad that Stefanos is doing all that, and it is clear that the results are a good sample of the benefits. It is clear that meditation is not the only factor, but I know that it can help all tennis players a lot: you have to find your own formula, I have succeeded and everyone should probably look for theirs. ”
“Meditation is really important to me: it is one of the main points in my day to day, not only in training or in my tennis career. I have incorporated aspects of meditation into my daily routines, they make me feel good. Breathing conscious, mindfulness … Meditation can be many things, but as professional athletes we are always active: we need a lot of energy on the track, a very high level of concentration, and I think that today’s technologies and distractions that we have not allow us to pay the necessary attention to relax, breathe, recharge batteries and focus on ourselves, “explained the No. 1 in the world.
