Djokovic donated 35.000 euros to a church in Jasenovo Polje
The best Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic donated for the church in Jasenovo Polje, near Niksic, the sum of 35.000 euros, as the Podgorica's newspaper "Dan" reports.
As the newuspapers say, the village of Jasenovo Polje was a craddle of the family of the first tennis player of the world, from which his great-grandfather Nedjeljko, because of the hard conditions, moved to Metohija in 1928.
It says also that the war in 1941 brought the Djokovics back to Jasenovo Polje where the same year Nedjeljko and his son Milorad lost their lives.
„Дан” reveals that Novak's great-grandmother Sara, originally from Jaukovic, experienced a great age.
The residents of Jasenovo Polje decided few years ago to build a church in honour of the protector of most families of this area, Saint Michael the Archangel.
So far the Djokovic family helped with 35.000 euros the building of the church.
