World no.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic has cancelled his visit to Mokra Gora and Andricgrad in Visegrad due to illness.
“Virus and fatigue have taken their toll. I spoke to Emir and I’m very sorry that I’m not able to make it. I will keep my promise and visit Mokra Gora and Andricgrad when the next opportunity arrises”, Novak said.
Djokovic was supposed to visit Drvengrad (Timber Town) – a traditional village near Mokra Gora today, and then Andricgrad on Friday, the stone city project created by film director and two-time Golden Palm winner Emir Kusturica.
Kusturica wishes to present the six-time Grand Slam champion with the keys to Andricgrad as a gesture of welcome and appreciation. The stone city, also known as Kamengrad, is dedicated to the 1961 Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature, Ivo Andric.
