There’s meeting the press and then there’s being pressed with questions by children. The latter appears to be a tad more enjoyable by the looks of an adorable interview featuring none other than world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

In Turin for the Nitto ATP Finals, Djokovic is the latest player to be featured by @losgonzalezdetour, an Instagram account documenting Santiago Gonzalez’s life on the road with his family. His children, son Matias and daughter Camila, interviewed Djokovic before Goran Ivanisevic’s son Oliver made a cameo of his own.

Subject matter ranged from pets and activities with his kids to Santa Claus, where Djokovic recalled the best gift Jolly Old St. Nicholas brought one year.

“I really wanted a little car when I was very young. One of these cars that you can drive around very slowly with a little engine,” shared the Serbian. “At the time, that was my favorite present.”


Then came the harder-hitting questions.

“Do you let your kids eat many candies?” asked Matias.

“We try to give them a healthier version of sweets, we try to balance it out,” said the 24-time major champion. “But, they are smart. They do hide their sweets, so it’s sometimes very difficult for us to find them.”

Inquired Camila, “Do you want to play doubles with my dad sometime?”

“Your dad never asked me to play doubles with him. So when he asks me, we can talk,” laughed Djokovic.

“Let’s play!” responded Gonzalez.

“I don’t know if I’m the level that he desires at the doubles. But one day, why not, in Mexico? Maybe we connect there.”

Oliver is on board with the location choice. “I like swimming pool and I like swimming in the beach. I soooo like it, like it!”

Both Djokovic and Gonzalez (with doubles partner Edouard Roger-Vasselin) are 1-1 so far this week at the ATP's season finale.
