Watching the exciting Wimbledon tennis recently, I noticed something very different about Novak Djokovic in a recent interview, he seemed more centred, calm and relaxed…indeed he has been using the tool and technique of meditation to assist in his game of tennis…and so I read further….:-)
An incredible and inspirational brief documentary on Novak Djokovic life…born in Serbia and later going on to win 8 Grand Slam titles including Wimbledon Champion in 2011 and 2014.
and…..Breathe……A recent interview at Wimbledon Novak Djokovic mentions the importance of calmness through the breath…..
Novak Djokovic began playing tennis at age 4, and was sent to train in Germany at age 13. His life long dream was achieved, when he won the Australian Open in 2008 and led the Serbian national team to its first Davis Cup win in 2010. In 2011, he claimed three of four Grand Slams and compiled a 43-match winning streak en route to the world’s No.1 rank. Novak is currently being coached by Wimbledon legend, Boris Becker.

The fine example of a champion sportsman, no.1 seed tennis player is ~ Novak Djokovic, who has discovered the art of meditation, to assist in his performance and has adjusted his diet to gluten-free. Of course there are other factors combining the meditation, with their dedication, commitment, eating plan, long hours of training, coaching and the list continues.
Time and time again during the process of my teaching meditation, to people from all walks of life, it has been shown to be a very effective tool, for inner calm, focus and achieving your personal dreams and goals.
Teaching the art of meditation to Olympic rowers, divers, professional football players, rugby players, there is one common theme I’ve experienced, you can be at the peak of your game and at the peak of your fitness levels, however what the most important aspect is ~ your mind, focus and self belief, if you can win or not. Physical fitness does not guarantee the results, the mind is a powerful tool and meditation is very effective, to focus your mind and intention on reaching your fullest potential, from a place of inner calm, centred and inner strength.
“Obviously, there is a huge amount of pressure and stress and everything involved, so you need to have a place where you know you can switch off and recharge your batteries. I guess it’s private, in a way. But I just can say that it’s… very calm and very beautiful… where I like to spend time.” ~ Novak Djokovic
Enjoy the continued play of Wimbledon this week, sunshine, strawberries & cream and the festivities that a great game of tennis brings….
