What kind of man would I be if I would not help the kinds that deserve it, that love tennis and – on top of that – achieve good results?’ I just stand there and he adds: ‘You know what we are going to do? One day, when Hamad makes it, you are going to take someone under your wings and help in the same way.’” It remains to be seen if 19-year-old Medjedovic continues his progression and is able to take up the mantle for Serbian tennis once Djokovic retires.
