Two role models – Novak Djokovic and Nikola Tesla, from entirely different fields, have been painted side-by-side (mural) to form a fantastic visual and offer a nice tribute at the Gornja Lamovita, Republika Srpska (Prijedor, Bosnia)

Nikola Tesla’s findings revolutionized the world. We are living our lives much more comfortably thanks to the Serbian-American engineer and physicist inventing the first alternating current (AC) motor and developing AC generation and transmission technology. He also pioneered the field of radio communication.

Another Serbian, Novak Djokovic, has made his country proud with his performances. He is a 21-time Grand Slam champion and has many impressive records to his name. The legendary player recently won his 7th Wimbledon title after defeating the Australian Nick Kyrgios in the final.

Now a photo of a spectacular mural has emerged of the two legends. A great way to pay homage to the contributions of the two electrifying achievers.

When Novak Djokovic expressed his love and respect for Nikola Tesla

Novak Djokovic appreciates greatness. A couple of years ago, the veteran tennis star heaped praise on Nikola Tesla during an Instagram conversation with good friend Chervin Jafarieh.

“One of the people that I admire a lot in my life and I feel that even though I have not lived in his era that has left a huge legacy for all of us; his name is Nikola Tesla, obviously. A lot of people watching this know who he is. He is one of the biggest reasons why we are able to have this life and wireless. Everything wireless is his creation, started with his invention. One of his quotes, actually, that stick with me always is that “One must be sane to think clearly. But one can think deeply and be quite insane.”

Djokovic went on to elaborate on his understanding of Tesla’s famous quote:

“He understood the importance of having a sane mind, of being quiet, being calm, the importance of going back to yourself, of trying to be serene, and to be in perfect harmony. And this vibration that will allow you to create. For him, it was important because then he could conceptualize all his devices, all his inventions, the ideas keep on coming. He was connected to the field.”
