If we had to make a list of top athletes whose generosity is beyond question, then Novak Djokovic's name would certainly be on it - Louis du Bosnet writes on Aleteia.

At 33 years of age, Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has won his fifth Wimbledon title, and 16th Grand Slam win, beating Roger Federer in a grueling match, just three minutes shy of five hours long. It's a safe bet that this man, who dominated the world tennis elite for so long, was able to find the energy he needed for this latest feather in his cap thanks to his regular Bible reading.

The number 1 tennis player in the world is an Orthodox Christian, and he does not hesitate to say it publicly.
