The Foods That Turned Djokovic into the No. 1 Player in the Game

Charles Masters

Okay, so he won Wimbledon. Again. Having racked up wins at more than one US and Australian Open, and carrying no less than three ATP World Tour victories, we can’t say we’re exactly surprised. With such consistent dominance on the court, you might well ask, “What is this guy eating?”

Lucky for you, we have the answer. Djokovic believes that food is information, and treats each meal as a communication with his body. Here’s what he’s telling it morning, noon, and night. 


Almost every day of Djokovic’s season starts with honey, fruit, and an oat-based cereal mix. “Your body needs sugar," says Djokovic. "In particular, it needs fructose, the sugar found in fruits, some vegetables, and especially honey.”
