After a disappointing show in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tennis, where Djokovic went out in the second round, he has once again proved his world class 'serve' as he serves up healthy, natural food at his new vegan restaurant in Monaco.

Together with his wife Jelena, Novak Djokovic has realised a dream and opened up a restaurant in the area between Monte-Carlo and Larvotto in Monaco. A vegetarian himself, Djokovic is a man of balance and believes that you should test, evaluate, adjust and repeat in life, and not just with tennis! His experiment with a vegetarian and gluten free diet is all part of Novak’s holistic approach to life.

The restaurant, called Eqvita, offers up a fine selection of vibrant, healthy meals and tasty cold-pressed juices packed full of nutrients. Perfect for vegans, vegetarians or even just the health concious.

Sharing his experience on facebook Djokovic wrote “My wife and I transferred our passion for healthy food into a restaurant concept called Eqvita Restaurant that is supposed to open in a few weeks. Tonight we are sharing our excitement with our family, friends and colleagues and in a few weeks time we will invite you all to join us here in Monaco,” 

Family, close friends and some of Novak’s colleagues from ATP attended the opening of the restaurant on Sunday 10th April 2016.

Andy Murray, Fabio Fognini, Tomas Berdych, Gael Monfils, Milos Raonic, Grigor Dimitrov, Ivo Karlovic, Simone Bolelli, Roberto Bautista Agut, Viktor Troicki, Nenad Zimonjic were among the stars from ATP tour to attend the launch of ‘Eqvita‘, which took place during the recent Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tournament.
