No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic just pocketed $2.98 million by defeating legend Roger Federer in an all-time classic Men’s Wimbledon Final. Even more impressive, he’s acing the game of life.
The 16-time Grand Slam champion enjoys a high-society lifestyle from his hillside Monte Carlo mansion all the way down to the celebrated waterfront. He also owns a modern Miami Beach villa in the sky at Eighty Seven Park, a new beachfront landmark. And if you count a deuce of SoHo condos at 565 Broome in New York, he’s got real estate game. Advantage Djokovic.
Miami’s cosmopolitan paradise of large harbors, mega yachts, culture, fashion, celebrities, and lower taxes fits Djokovic’s lifestyle to a T. “The Djoker” is famously social—court-side clowning, fan mingling, chatting with restauranteurs, yachting with friends, and cruising the streets in luxury cars. His sense of humor is infectious. A vegan, he even entertains Wimbledon crowds by eating the grass. He’s the life of any party. So Miami is a calling.
Djokovic shares his South Florida residence with wife Jelena and their two kids. Their expansive three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom residence was sustainably designed by French firm RDAI, interior architects behind Hermès stores worldwide. The home features floor-to-ceiling windows, a natural design palette, open layout and a panoramic 25-foot wrap-around balcony—to remind Djokovic he’s sitting on top the world.
Located in North Beach, the condo is one of 70 exclusive units at Eighty Seven Park (ranging from 1,400 to 7,000 square feet). Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano’s first U.S. residential building is a glass tower floating above the trees, adjacent to the sprawling 35-acre North Shore Park.
Stacked like a sail-ready cruise ship, the elliptical building offers unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and hotel-style amenities, including two oceanfront swimming pools, salon, spa, fitness center, library, wine and juice bars, and an in-house botanist.
From the spacious, contemporary kitchen, Djokovic (a vegan restaurant owner and nutrition book author) cooks gluten-free meals with premium appliances and a long island amid built-in cabinets. On rare off days, he can indulge in the fitness center or underground spa with hammam, sauna and steam room, ensuring that his grand lifestyle stays on serve.
The Serbian-born superstar has a “key to the park,” giving him special residents-only access to a private north-side gated park designed by West 8, the Dutch landscape firm behind the transformation of Governor’s Island in New York.
“I was inspired by the unmatched level of service, exclusive park access, in-house botanist, and panoramic views of both land and sea,” said Djokovic. “It all provides the perfect lifestyle for me and my family.”
Djokovic also invested in two units at another Renzo Piano-designed condominium—the gleaming, twin towers at 565 Broome SoHo in New York (another yacht harbor city). At this Euro-style, 30-story condominium (crafted from stone, white oak wood, glass, and concrete), the tennis star has a U.S. Open base of operation.
The Bizzi & Partners Development building boasts sweeping city and Hudson River views, a private gated driveway, a Taschen-curated atrium library, and “white glove” service like the 24-hour concierge.
Residents like Djokovic can also enjoy an in-home curated library, and select units feature private saltwater pools. Djokovic can chill at the landscaped outdoor terrace, 55-foot heated lap pool, sauna, steam room, fitness center or wet bar.
After a well-earned fifth Wimbledon title, Djokovic is overdue for some rest and relaxation—in a pool, sauna, yacht, Monaco, Miami or New York.
