On Friday night, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic and Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, who is currently managing Roma, attended Djokovic’s victory against Argentine tennis player Tomas Etcheverry in the second round of the Rome Masters competition.

I’ve watched him a lot in the past, the second-ranked player in the world remarked during a news conference following the match. When he was coaching in England, he came to see me play in London, notably during the Professional Tennis Players Association championships that were held there.

He said, “He is an avid tennis player and, without a doubt, one of the finest football coaches in history and present. He attending my matches makes me very pleased. He has a really kind disposition. He has always been cordial with my group and me.

Both before and after the match, in the changing room tunnel, the tennis player and the coach spoke in the players’ lounge.

Mourinho requested that Djokovic autograph his cap.


“I hope I can repay the favor and go to see his team (Roma) when they train,” Djokovic said.

The 61st-ranked Etcheverry was upset by Djokovic in the second round of the 1,000-point competition 7-6 (7-5), 6-2.

Grigor Dimitrov, a Bulgarian who is rated 33rd in the world, will be Djokovic’s opponent in the third round.
