Mike Tyson Names Novak Djokovic As Favorite Tennis Player

By Scoop Malinowski

Former Heavyweight Champion of the World boxing titan Mike Tyson, has long been a tennis enthusiast, since way back in the days of his boxing career. Tyson was exposed to tennis by his ex-wife Robin Givens and her sister, who were involved in the sport and friendly with Martina Navratilova who frequently trained in New Jersey with the Rutgers University tennis team.

Today Tyson follows the sport and attends tournaments like US Open and Indian Wells, partly inspired because his daughter Milan is competing on the USTA junior circuit.

“Tennis changed my life, our lives,” said the 55 year old Tyson who will turn 56 tomorrow. “My daughter (Milan) loves tennis, she’s very serious about it. Tennis broadened my horizons and I’m grateful to be involved and meeting everybody.”

Having seen the best players in the world up close and in person, and also meeting many of them on site, one particular player has impressed the youngest man in history to win the World Heavyweight Championship, which he did at age 20 in Las Vegas in 1986 by knocking out Trevor Berbick in the second round. ”

“Novak Djokovic is my favorite at the moment. I really like to watch him. He is my favorite because of the way he came back and beaten guys like Nadal and Federer is amazing. He is a true fighter.”

    That’s nice to see. 😃

    Speaking of which, I also heard that Djokovic played pretty well today, so hopefully he’s gradually getting into his groove.

    Kokkinakis said Novak played “perfect” and he can’t see him losing playing this level.

    Great pic Scoop!!
    Maybe Nole’s greatest fight is with the your body-their choice vaxxers.

    Doug, Djokovic is fighting a vast anti Novak conspiracy along with each opponent he faces, and amazingly he’s doing very well. If any one can slay the goliath, it’s davey djokovic.

    That’s a good one! 😄 The only “choice” people like that care about is inflicting their own selfish agenda upon the world at large.
