Djokovic to star in reality show
NEW YORK—Novak Djokovic reached the US Open final Friday and marked the occasion by announcing he will be the subject of a documentary series about his life.
The world number one, and the only man to win more than $100 million in prize money, agreed to allow the cameras to follow him on and off court.
The series, which has the working title of “Novak”, will be aired on Amazon Prime in the United States, United Kingdom, Austria and Japan in 2017.
“My fans have been suffering and celebrating with me from the very beginning of my career on the tennis courts,” Djokovic said in a statement released by the ATP.
“Now I want to share with them all my daily life and what’s important to me -– my values, my beliefs, and my habits –- and also introduce to them all the amazing people that are always next to me.”
Djokovic on Friday made the US Open final for the seventh time with a 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 win over Gael Monfils of France.
