“I’m a big fan of Milan and I’ll always be. For me, football is second only [to] tennis. My father was a professional footballer and at home, we always watch the Rossoneri’s games with great interest.”
Furthermore, a few Milan players attended the Serbian’s match at the Shanghai Masters in 2014. After the game, Djokovic moved to social media to thank the Italian giants for their support and attendance.
