Take a look at Novak Djokovic’s extravagant new home

Besides being conceptualised by RDAI, a firm recognised for working with Hermès, the building also features an in-house botanist.

Roger Federer may be (rightly) hogging all the headlines for his age and logic-defying win after win, but it’s the second best – according to the ATP rankings – male tennis star in the world who’s indulging in the good life.

On the court, Novak Djokovic hasn’t had a great year. Following a defeat to Nick Kyrgios at the Indian Wells Masters, the Serb was forced to pull out of last month’s Miami Open after suffering an elbow injury. His time in Miami wasn’t a complete waste though. While in town, the 29-year-old managed to hit a grand slam with the purchase of his ultra-luxury home on Miami Beach.

Just in case you’re wondering, this home is no consolation prize. It’s one fit for champions. The 12-time Grand Slam champion dropped a cool $8.9 million on his luxurious three-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom apartment at the Eighty Seven Park complex designed by famed architect Renzo Piano.

For those of you who don’t know, Renzo Piano is an Italian architect whose beautiful mind gave us The Shard and The Whitney Museum of American Art. His newly designed building sits south of the Surfside community atop two parks with an unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean.

The building comes equipped with a plunge (and infinity) pool with a personal valet, a botanical bar and library at the lobby, a state-of-the-art gym and spa. Take a look.
