About Novak Djokovic
Becoming the world’s no. 1 tennis player is not an easy feat, and no one knows this better than Novak Djokovic. His countless triumphs on the tennis court are a combination of several different factors, but is vegan diet one of them?
Is Djokovic vegan?
Djokovic credits a plant-based diet for clearing his mind and says that the key to winning matches comes down to confidence. After Djokovic's victorious Wimbledon match in July 2019 against his biggest rival, Roger Federer, the champion sat down with a press interviewer and discussed his diet. Djokovic does not like to label his diet because of the "misinterpretation of the word vegan", instead, he says "I do eat plant-based, and it's been for many years." He goes on to explain how his diet is one of the reasons he recovers well after a high-intensity match. " I don't have allergies that I used to have any more. And I like it."
