The top-seeded plant-based Tennis player, Novak, created history yet again with his 5th Wimbledon win in a thrilling 4 hours 57 minutes long match. The win comes as a wave of happiness for all plant-based fans of Novak after he recently credited the diet for his fast recovery times.
Yes to Plant-Based, No to Labels
In a post-match press conference, after the world number one Tennis player secured a place in the Sunday Finals, Novak had remarked how he has been following a plant-based diet consistently but doesn’t approve of the term ‘vegan’.
The 32-year-old Tennis star explained that he has been eating plant-based foods since past few years but doesn’t like labels because of their misinterpretation and misuse. He further adds that eating plant-based is one of the reasons he is able to recover well and doesn’t have allergies anymore.
When asked about the next season of the documentary ‘Game Changer’, of which he was an Executive Producer, the plant-based athlete said,
“It is about how this diet affects the world, not just personal health, but also sustainability, ecology, animals. This is what I care about so I’m really privileged to be part of that team.”
