After winning his seventh Australian Open title, Novak Djokovic has been enjoying vacation mode by going skiing at Val Gardena in Italy.
The world No.1 filmed himself skiing down one of the mountain’s hundreds of trails, whilst singing. Val Gardena is part of a network of 12 ski areas in the Dolomites, which offer slopes for skiers ranging in level from beginner to Olympic gold medalist.
Djokovic is no stranger to the slopes, having first started skiing in Serbia when he was two years old. Even though he opted to spend more time at the tennis courts, the 31-year-old returns to the mountains for a ski vacation with his family whenever he can.
Grateful. To breathe, to love, to be, to enjoy, and leave this beautiful mountain with precious memories and NO fears ???????????????? Until next year! ????❄️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Zahvalna. Što postojim, što volim, što sam voljena, što umem da uživam i radujem se. I što idem s planine BEZ straha ????????????Do sledećeg puta! ????
Djokovic's wife Jelena and their two children were part of the trip as well. She had some thoughts to share about keeping up with her husband, and describes a bad fall and how Djokovic helped her gain her confidence back.
Luckily for the Djokovic family, his down time isn’t over just yet. Djokovic isn’t scheduled to compete again until Indian Wells in March, where he is a five time champion.
