Novak Djokovic transforms a little girl into an overnight celebrity
World No.1 Novak Djokovic invited a young friend, 9-year-old Zia Uehling up on the stage to sing a song during his press conference after his victory over Sam Querrey of the United States in the third round of the US Open.

Reigning Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic transformed a little girl into an overnight celebrity when he requested her to sing a song in front of the world’s media in his US Open presser on Saturday.

“I will sing an original song I wrote called African Sun. I wrote this song to give hope to the children in Africa. I never really play without my guitar, so I’ll give it a try,” Uehling said.

“She’s a prodigy, a future star, and this is a very valuable experience for her,” Djokovic said.

Djokovic hasn’t lost a set in three matches. Tomorrow the former US Open champion faces German Philipp Kohlschreiber.

The Serbinator hasn’t dropped a set in his three matches so far in the tournament. On Monday, Novak will take on the German Philipp Kohlschreiber for a spot in the quarterfinals against either Andy Murray or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

“More solid in every shot, I believe,” Djokovic evaluated his enhanced performance. “Using serve efficiently, not going for power and speed as much as for accuracy and precision, allowing myself to have an easier first shot. Just moving better, returning more balls in the court. Overall very, you know, very solid game.”
