Novak Djokovic turns to Spanish spiritual guru for guidance

The tennis player wants to build the home based around concepts like the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC has reportedly been seeking spiritual guidance from Spanish tennis player-turned spiritual guru Pepe Imaz.

Imaz’s techniques include telling students to send ‘pleasant thoughts’ to a container of boiled rice as part of projects to better themselves.

The 42-year-old, whose Amor y Paz centre is in Marbella, is known for his unusual methods, which include long hugs for his students.

World number two Djokovic has raised eyebrows by bringing Imaz to the Paris Masters in place of Boris Becker, who has not been present at the tournament.

The Serbian player has grown closer to Imaz since his performance began to dip after claiming the French Open in May, crashing out of Wimbledon in the third round and failing to reach the US Open final.

Djokovic recently recharged in Marbella, near Imaz’s centre, following a shock defeat to Spain’s Roberto Bautista at the Shanghai Masters.

He combined training at the Puente Romano resort with yoga and strolls along the beach with his wife, son and parents.

The Serbian will be hoping to reclaim his number one spot from Briton Andy Murray at the ATP World Tour finals in London later this month.
