Plant-based athlete Novak Djokovic won the US Open Men’s final today, defeating opponent Juan Martin del Potro.
The straight sets win marks the Serbian tennis pro’s 14th Grand Slam title to date – and follows his win at Wimbledon earlier this year.
Having recovered from an elbow injury last year, Djokovic is playing to win and credits his performance in part to a plant-based diet.
While Djokovic is not fully vegan, he eats a mostly plant-based diet which he says is fully free of meat for both ‘ethical and health reasons’.
He also owns a vegan restaurant with his wife Jelena and authored a guide to meat, dairy, egg, and gluten-free eating for optimal performance, titled Serve to Win.
