Novak Djokovic and his son Stefan absolutely loved Kevin Punter’s outstanding game-sealing three in a Euroleague game against Monaco. On Friday night, Partizan Belgrade defeated Monaco 88-84. Djokovic, who is currently in Monte Carlo for the Monte Carlo Masters, came to support Partizan with his family.
With 18 seconds left in the game, Partizan sharp-shooter Punter drained a game-winning three. The cameras caught Djokovic and his son celebrating – little Stefan was absolutely losing it on the sideline.

Even before Punter’s game-winner, little Stefan was caught passionately supporting Partizan.
After the game, Partizan guard James Nunally approached Djokovic and asked for a photo.
Djokovic now turns his focus on the Monte Carlo Masters
Now, Djokovic is turning his focus on Monte Carlo, where he is a two-time champion.
Ahead of the opening clay Masters of the year, coach Patrick Mouratoglou explained why Djokovic is “still the best in the game.” “The best player in the world is the world No 1, and it’s Novak Djokovic. If Alcaraz is No 1 tomorrow, we can say it’s Alcaraz.
I think Carlos again is an incredible player and I have no doubt that he will be No 1 for years. But for the moment, it’s impossible not to say that Novak is the best. He is not able to play a lot of tournaments for non-vaccinated reasons, and he’s still technically No 1.
Novak will probably be the GOAT. He’s a guy who’s winning Grand Slams for 15 years. He arrived at a time that Rafa and Roger were winning absolutely everything, and he was able to arrive, beat both of them and become No 1. I think Carlos is more impressive than Novak in terms of the tennis he plays.
He has so much power, he’s so explosive physically. He also has a touch. I understand that people already want to put Carlos on top of him, but he’s not there yet,” Mouratoglou said in a video uploaded on his Instagram.
