Inside anti-vax Djokovic’s luxury villa, bizarre beliefs and wife’s conspiracy posts



Inside anti-vax Djokovic's luxury villa, bizarre beliefs and wife's conspiracy posts

Novak Djokovic is a controversial figure at the moment. The 20-time tennis grand slam champion is at the centre of a deportation storm ahead of the Australian Open

Tennis champion Novak Djokovic has won his appeal against an attempt by Australian officials to revoke his visa.

Djokovic had been forced to quarantine pending an appeal since he touched down in the country, despite claiming he had a medical exemption that allowed him to compete in the Australian Open without being vaccinated against Covid-19.

Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke may still choose to cancel his visa on new grounds and he could still be banned from the country for three years.

The Serb is considered one of the best tennis players of all time and has won a joint-record 20 grand slam singles titles. He has won the Australian Open alone nine times.

Despite this, he has often been considered a polarising figure within the game due to his stance on certain issues, such as vaccinations.

Novak’s brother Djordje told Sport Klub: “What we can do is to let this be known all over social media – they want to capture and lock up Novak again. We’re currently consulting with PRs about next steps.”

Due to 20 grand slam singles titles and 86 career titles, the Serb is the highest-paid tennis player of all time in terms of raw prize money, according to Pro Tennis Live.

His total prize money earnings have been calculated at over £113million.

During his career, Djokovic has signed deals with the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Uniqlo, Seiko and Lacoste.

Where does Djokovic currently live?
This astronomical sum is one reason why the 34-year-old is living in such a large Marbella mansion.

The property is reported to contain nine bedrooms and be worth over £5.3million, according to The Olive Press.

The luxury dwelling has been described as “Moroccan-style villa”, with a gym, spa, sauna, tennis court and games room.

On the court, he has become known for his athleticism and claims much of this success is due to going gluten-free.

The switch came after nutritionist Dr Igor Cetojevic held a piece of white bread against his stomach in 2010, where he felt “noticeably weaker”.

The business studies graduate and former model shared a debunked video on Instagram that claimed 5G caused coronavirus. She later said she did not claim the baseless theory “to be true or not”.

Novak, meanwhile, has said he is not against vaccines, but that “My issue here with vaccines is if someone is forcing me to put something in my body that I don’t want”.

One of Djokovic’s beliefs is that water can be healed to become purer through positive thinking.

He said: “I know some people that through that energetical transformation, through the power of prayer, through the power of gratitude, they managed to turn the most toxic food or maybe most polluted water into the most healing water, because water reacts … molecules in the water react to our emotions, to what is being said.”

How Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ Costumes Were Custom-Designed for Comfort



Costume designer Jany Temime says working on Marvel’s “Black Widow” was a dream job. She doesn’t know the exact number of costumes she created, but it was “a lot.”

The costume designer who counts “Judy,” “Skyfall” and six of the Harry Potter films including “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I and II” among her credits, turned to the Russian and Norwegian armies and the circus for “Black Widow” for design inspirations as new characters such as Yelena (Florence Pugh) and the Red Guardian (David Harbour) are introduced.

Temime also inherited Scarlett Johansson in the title role, whose costume that had already been established. This time around, she made a few tweaks to allow for comfort, sculpting it to suit a woman’s body.

Here, she breaks down designing those looks.

On Inheriting the Black Widow Outfit and the Marvel Comic Universe

With the Black Widow costume, I changed a few things and adapted it to Scarlett and her body. When you get the design, you have a computer reality and you have the reality of a woman’s body, and you have to put those two things together.

To make it comfortable, we had the base of the costume made from rubbery fabric. I also added in a design graphic to stop it from looking flat, and that was printed out.

Between the seams, we allowed two to three millimeters of elastic fabric to give some room and stretch because I didn’t want her to feel like she was in something tight. I was so happy to hear Scarlett say that it was the most comfortable outfit.

The way we cut it too was glamorous, we cut the waist a little higher because you have to model the suit to the body to flatter it.

I also designed the young widow outfits which they gave me carte blanche with, and again, they were enthusiastic about it. It was such a collaboration and so dreamy. I also understood what [director] Cate Shortland wanted and her vision, especially for that opening sequence.

Introducing Yelena and the White Suits

Since Yelena came from Russia, I looked at it from a different point of view. I looked at photos of the Russian and Norwegian army and I came across some of the soldiers in the snow wearing white, and that’s where the white uniform idea came from – also they pick up their “father” in the show so I thought that would look gorgeous.

I wanted her outfit to be more functional and more army-like. I used double fabric with cotton and nylon stitched together gave it volume which had this sportswear look to it. Her look was less of a superhero than just a normal one.

We also had to introduce the green vest. She says in the film she bought this vest with all those pockets, and the idea was that she had come out of that brainwashed spy world, and buys that. So, I made something easy to wear, sturdy, practical and based on post-‘50s sportswear fashion.

When you look at the women in their different suits, I hope you can feel and see the difference between Russia and the USA.

Scarlett’s white suit was made from similar fabrics used on scuba diving suits – that’s what gave it a rubbery look.

And again, I printed other aspects of the costume to make it interesting and to create that lift so it didn’t look flat and boring, and just to cut that monotony of plain rubber-coated fabric.

I wanted to design something that reflected what the Soviet Union thought America was. So, there was this superhero design with this primary color of red, that helmet that looks terrible with that piece under the chin, and it was so old fashioned, almost like an old-fashioned comic.

That helmet was inspired by those guys who are shot out of cannons at the circus.

David was amazing. I created it for him and on him. He is the sort of actor who could feel the part from the inside out. He didn’t mind being slightly ridiculous as long as you get the effect, especially in that sequence where he is trying on the costume for the first time and it’s so tight.

Forget Serena Williams’ zebra outfit, ‘human highlighter’ Rafael Nadal is raising eyebrows



Serena Williams arrived at Roland Garros with a zebra-striped outfit, but Rafael Nadal’s “ugly” shirt also got a lot of people talking.

After wearing a black catsuit at the 2018 French Open that got the tongues wagging so much so that the French tennis bosses all but banned catsuits, Williams opted for something different this year.

“I think I was wrong,” Rafa mentioned.

“I spoke to him in total calmness. I exposed the situation that was happening. If I needed to go back, I wouldn’t do it again,” Nadal continued.

“Were are among colleagues, we see each other every week. There are codes inside a tennis court that must be respected. I believe I was wrong for calling him to the net and telling him the things.”

Dijana Djokovic reveals the most difficult match of Novak’s to watch



The mother of World No. 1 Novak Djokovic says watching her son at the Wimbledon singles final last year was the most difficult time she has had while watching her son play in his career. Djokovic came back from match points down to defeat Roger Federer in a classic five setter to win the Wimbledon title in July even as the whole stadium seemed to cheer for the Swiss legend.

They write terrible things about Novak Djokovic because he bothers them,  says mother Dijana

Dijana was speaking in an interview with the Serbian portal “Blic Sport” on the program, “Mothers of Champions” “I saw a lot of his matches, but Wimbledon was the most difficult last year. In a stadium where everyone was cheering on Roger Federer, we were just a handful of fans for Novak.

When Federer had two match points, I reached for my cross from the Don river. I am a believer, I wear the amulet all the time, it often saved me in difficult moments. I said to myself, ‘Nole, you can do it, you’ve done it twice, you can do it again.’


He did it. He was saved by God. Novak also believes in God, he feels chosen. He carries a cross that brings him peace and happiness. It is from the Greek monastery Hilandar. He says his prayers morning and evening,” The mother of the 17-time Grand Slam champion also recalled another painful defeat – at the Rio Olympics in 2016, where he lost to World No.

He had all the prerequisites to win gold. The wish was not granted to him. He had this elbow problem and couldn’t stand the pressure. He felt that he had disappointed the people in Serbia. We were both very emotional. Maybe he got that from me – sometimes I curse quite a lot.”

Dijana also gave some insight about some of the early health problems that Novak suffered during his career. “At the beginning of his career, Novak had many health problems. Because he had to give up a few matches, he was often attacked by the public or by tennis experts.

He had a curvature of the nose wall, it was difficult for him to breathe. After an operation, things went better. In 2010 he was found to be intolerant to gluten. It made life difficult for him. He had to give up in Australia because of the heat.

Then his bleeding toe in Paris in 2007: after playing for five consecutive days, he gave up the semi-final against Nadal. Then everyone accused him, including John McEnroe! I had bandaged his foot the night before the duel. In the morning he could barely walk in slippers.

I advised him not to go to the court, he absolutely wanted to get an injection. Then he beat Nadal 6-2 in the first set. Novak took a medical timeout between sets to bandage the wounds. When Nadal saw the blood, he knew what was going on and then chased him into every corner until Novak had to give up.”
