Serbia’s Number 1 player Novak Djokovic likes to live the high life.
In 2008 the 6′ 2″ hunk paid about 2.5 million for a luxury Manhattan 60 Sunseeker Yacht. With four cabins, a salon, kitchen, and bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi, the vessel is moored in Monaco, Monte Carlo where Djokovic lives with his long-term girlfriend Jelena Rustic, and their poodle Pierre. Last year the couple went on a month-long cruise to see the coasts of Spain, Italy, France, and Croatia where he played a doubles match with his brother Marko.

The 23-year-old Serb has known Rustic for five years and they have been dating for three. She graduated from Bocconi University in Milan and she now works at Tamoil, the Libyan Oil Company, in Monaco as a human resources coordinator.
Despite rumors that he was dating Russian player Maria Sharapova after she was cheering him on in his private box at the U.S. Open, he insists they are just good friends and Rustic is his girlfriend.
Born in Belgrade on 22 May 1987 into a sporting family, his father Srdjan wanted him to be a football player or a skier. His father, Uncle, and Aunt were all professional skiers and his father was also very good at football.
Djokovic started playing tennis at the age of 4 and showed promise at an early age, he made his professional debut at the age of 16. His idol was Pete Sampras and, although he considers himself a good all-rounder, his favorite surface is hard.
When he is not practicing he likes to surf the internet, watch movies and listen to music. He also loves home-made food, salads and he prefers soft drinks to alcohol.
When he bought the yacht he had it fitted with several wide plasma screens and there is also an excellent sound system.
In November he will be at London’s 02 Arena (the former Millennium Dome) to try and regain the title he won in 2008. At the last event held in Shanghai Djokovic beat last year’s Masters’ winner Davydenko.
