If not,let me enlighten you ‘Thor’ is the Norse mythological Asgardian god of thunder,whose hammer enables him to fly and manipulates weather. Then comes a real Serbian God of tennis who holds racquet made of graphite fibers or kelvar and hits and returns tennis ball with perfect brute power.The precise and powerful backhand and his ability to be incredibly quick and agile on the court makes him a superhero who dances on the music of glory. The magic of glory created from the sounds of strings – The king of endurance with ability to withstand wear and tear with great physical stamina and power,the one and only ‘Novak Djokovic’ .
