Belgrade, Feb. 10, 2010 ( Serbia Today) – Works on the project aimed at building the largest tennis complex in Belgrade started by the family of the Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic, is well on its way. Their Tennis Center will be located at the Municipality New Belgrade. It is the idea of family Djokovic that this Center become the place where ATP Serbia Open will take place in the future. If this becomes reality, Novak Djokovic will be the first world class tennis player who owns tennis court where one of the major tournaments is playing. While many retired tennis stars have their own tennis schools and courts, those all are utilized mostly for the needs of their own schools or local level competitions.
On the website of the construction company involved in the project “Beobuild” the details regarding the future look of the Tennis Complex were revealed. The central part of the complex will be tennis arena with 5000 seats, surrounded with several smaller tennis courts. Part of the complex will be reserved for the work of the Tennis Academy Nenad Djokovic. Center will also include all side amenities that large sports centers have to offer to visitors, like hotel, restaurants, sport and souvenirs stores, vendors stands etc. The Djokovic’s “Family Sport” will spread over 37,398 square meters once it is completed.
