Novak Djokovic's season was one to write home about, and now he can do it with his own postage stamp. The Serbian National Postal Service is issuing a set of stamps to honor one of the country's most accomplished sportsmen. They also partnered with Djokovic's foundation in its goal of helping Serbian children to attend preschool.

"Thank you to the Post of Serbia for this initiative, which I experienced as an effort to revive the tradition of writing letters and postcards, and I am glad to be able to contribute to that," said Djokovic in a statement from the Novak Djokovic Foundation.
Djokovic, who is coming off a season in which he won three Grand Slams and reached the final of a fourth, was presented with a framed copy of the stamps. Designed by Boban Savic, they show Djokovic on court and name some of his biggest titles.
"The Post, as a national institution, in this way made an appropriate homage and a sign of gratitude from the people of Serbia to Novak Djokovic, for his sport[ing] achievements, and everything he is doing for the citizens of our country and its reputation in the world with his public and humanitarian work," said Zoran Djordjevic, who runs the department.
The No. 1 has been spending his off-season at home in Serbia.
