Tennis Champion Novak Djokovic's Vegan Restaurant Opening Soon!
Novak Djokovic, who is currently ranked as the No. 1 in men’s singles tennis, knows the importance of diet and nutrition. The Serbian tennis player experienced a huge change in his performance and fitness when he consulted with a nutritionist and became gluten and dairy-free. So when the tennis star and his wife, Jelena Djokovic, decided to open a vegan restaurant, they stated it was a result of their shared passion for healthy food.
The restaurant, Eqvita, is located in Monte Carlo in Monaco and featured prominent tennis stars this past Sunday for a preview night, including Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov, Fabio Fognini, and Tomas Berdych. Djokovic shared his excitement on his Facebook page:
“Yeyyyy!!!! We made it! We have the most amazing team of people who helped us make this night happen. 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.”
The restaurant is set to feature healthy vegan dishes and cold-pressed juices, but the menu has not been made public yet. Djokovic has stated that Eqvita is more than a restaurant to him, since:
“It’s a concept. A story. A love story to be precise. Pretty much a personal once, since I shared it with my Jelena.”
We will have to wait until opening day to see what this health-conscious power couple will feature on their menu!
