The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun founder Semir Osmanagic has revealed the Archaeological Park in Visoko will be getting two tennis courts as they want to give Novak Djokovic a place to prepare for some of the biggest events in the world.
Djokovic, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, has become a regular guest at the Archaeological Park in Visoko and the plan is to give the world No. 1 a place to relax and train when he comes to Bosnia with his family next time.
Djokovic has been several times to the Archaeological Park since the start of the pandemic as that’s the place where he likes to come and recharge his batteries. The Archaeological Park in Visoko will be getting two courts – a clay and a hard court – and the people from the Novak Tennis Center are helping in the construction of tennis courts in Visoko.
Osmanagic revealed the courts will be suited to the conditions similar to the ones at the French Open and US Open.
Osmanagic: Djokovic can now come to Visoko and prepare for tournaments
“We are creating a regional center for tennis players’ preparations, and we expect the best tennis player in the world and our best ambassador Novak Djokovic to be our most frequent guest here.
So far, he has come several times, stayed for a few days and returned to training in other places, and when this center is finished, Novak will be able to come to Visoko with his entire team and spend 10-15 days preparing for tournaments and challenges that await him,” Osmanagic told Bosnian news outlet Avaz.
The opening ceremony of the tennis courts is scheduled for July 13. According to Osmanagic, the plan is to have Djokovic clash another tennis star in Visoko. “We expect the opening on July 13 this year, and the courts should be opened by Novak Djokovic, in a match with another famous world tennis name that will remain a surprise,” Osmanagic revealed.
