The ATP tournament in Tel Aviv is in full swing, and today (Wednesday) its highlight will arrive: the first match of Novak Djokovic, who will advance to a doubles match alongside Yoni Ehrlich.
Complaints are still heard behind the scenes about the organizers and the exorbitant ticket prices, but Amir Weintraub looks on from the sidelines and does not understand the grievances.
"I personally know over half of the players who play here in the competition, whether I grew up with them, whether I played against them, whether I shared a room with them in Challengers or Futures when none of them or I had enough money to get a room by myself. I Every day I sit here with them in the players' dining room and we share stories from the past and a smile just crosses my face and reminds me of things I've forgotten. It's amazing! I got to sit with Novak Djokovic for lunch, a crazy experience and an amazing man! These players are dying one by one for Israel And just want to come back," Weintraub wrote on Facebook.
An extraordinary experience.

Weintraub even referred to a video that was circulated in the last day on social networks, in which Djokovic is seen conducting a slightly strange training session on the beach in Tel Aviv.
Djokovic is seen practicing strokes even though he is not holding a racket, and without interference from those around him, in a situation that seems a little surreal.
"Where would you see Messi exercising on the beach without fear of being jumped?" he wrote.

Weintraub continued: "Djokovic, who in my personal opinion is no less great than Messi, is exercising yesterday on the beach without being afraid that someone will approach him, without worrying about anything, and is simply living his lifestyle as a human being without hiding in a hotel. For me it is a great happiness and pride that the guy These people come and say these great things about Israel, and that they feel at home and comfortable to walk around normally without fear. Today at a good hour there is a full day of tennis, I hope that we can already put the whole matter of tickets and all the matter of mistakes and confusion behind us."
