Somebody has talked all over the Wimbledon town center, Djokovic is a vegan. Is this true and if so why you made that choice?
08:28 – 09:05
I don’t like the labels, to be honest. So I do eat plant-based for quite a few years already, but because of the missinterpretations of labels and misuse of labels, I just don’t like that kind of a name, but I do eat plant-based and I think that’s one of the reasons why I recover well and don’t have allergies that I used to have anymore. And I like it.

Novak, my daughter keeps texting me about a documentary that you’re involved in. I’m just wondering, from your point of view, what was it like being an executive producer on a documentary and should we watch it?
10:17 – 10:47
Well, you should watch it if you have an interest, of course. I mean it’s about a plant-based diet. That’s what I’m going to say. Obviously, they are coming out with it soon and it is about how this diet affects the world, not just personal health, but also sustainability and ecology, animals, and this is what I care about, so I’m really privileged to be a part of that team.
