Novak Djokovic enjoys Audemars Piguet cocktail party and even plays some video game tennis against fans

Earlier this month, Novak Djokovic made his way to Brazil for the first time and took part in several activities, including an exhibition match against Gustavo Kuerten and a tennis court inaugurate with him. So when Djokovic hit a cocktail party for his watch sponsor Audemars Piguet as their official Ambassador, there were plenty of good times!


Rio de Janeiro — The Swiss Watch Manufacture from Le Brassus, Audemars Piguet, co-hosted a memorable cocktail with special guest of honor, Novak Djokovic, at the Baretto-Londra at the Fasano Hotel. The cocktail was co-hosted with the retailer, SARA, which exclusively represents the Swiss brand in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Guests of the cocktail mingled and enjoyed of the elegantly and playfully decorated Londra Bar at the Fasano while anxiously waiting for the arrival of the guest of honor. Guests were welcomed and encouraged to participate in a raffle for a chance to play an interactive tennis match with none other than the world’s number one tennis player. A special half size tennis court was set up for interactive tennis matches where guests practiced on played against each other until the big moment.

Upon Djokovic’s arrival, a welcome speech was given by Mr. David Zilberman, owner of Sara Joias, and Mr. Frederick Martel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Audemars Piguet (North America), Inc. followed by a viewing of Novak Djokovic’s Defining Moment Video. As this marked Djokovic’s first visit to Rio, he had several nice things to say about the city and its people and the opportunities he was given during his stay. A special thank you was given to soccer player Dejan Petkovic, Djokovic’s official host and friend of Audemars Piguet.

The notoriously accessible and friendly Nole happily mingled, signed autographs and took pictures with the guests of the cocktail but truly the biggest highlight of the night was when 4 of those guests were randomly selected to play a mini tournanent for the chance to play against Djokovic himself. The winner not only got to play an interactive match, but also received a trophy and special tennis gear autographed by the tennis player.

The cocktail was the perfect close to the 3 day Djoko no Rio event that the “cidade maravilhosa” (marvelous city) hosted the tennis player. Audemars Piguet and SARA had the pleasure of co-sponsoring this event in addition to the cocktail.

Marking Djokovic’s first visit to Rio, the 3 days encompassed a series of very special events. The first on November 16th being the inauguration of a community tennis court located in the the infamous Rocinha favela where Djokovic was dubbed godfather of the court for the next year. Then the much awaited friendly tennis match between Djokovic and Brazil’s number one tennis player, Gustavo “Guga” Kuerten on November 17th and ended with a star filled friendly soccer match on November 18th.

    I just love Novak and the way he represents Tennis as well as his beloved Serbia.
    We Serbians throughtout the world could not ask for a better Ambassader for Serbia than Nole and he is truly loved and respected for this his love of Serbia and its people and Culture and especially the ORTHODOX RELIGION he has done so much good as we the Serbians are a wonderful loving and law abiding proud Citizens as well as being very loving Human Beings and we were not represented or viewed as this since the
    war of the 1990″s we were portayed as war Criminals which was all media crap that blamed and showed Serbians as the new Nazi andthis is never ever what we are or ever were and the WORLD MEDIA needs to get their fact straight like so many Hollywood starts who know what wonderful Human Beings teh Serbian People are and we were always this because that is just how we are we have always been the ALLIES not the enemy and this bad Media Reporting and dishonest reporting needs to stop and be fair and just so we all owe our heartfelr gratitude to Novak Djokovic.

  • Thanks for your input, Milkica. It’s always great to see an athlete live up to their potential not only in their sport but also as an ambassador for their country. And Novak has certainly done that. As a fellow Serbo-Croat, I am proud of the example he is showing the tennis world of being a fighter and champion.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
