An academic painter Milos Popovic, from East Sarajevo, painted an 8-metre giant sized mural depicting Novak Djokovic, on a residential building in Trnovo, near the capital of the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Popovic said the initiative is the brainchild of the Tourist Organisation of the Municipality of Trnovo. 

The artist believes the mural is the largest in the world dedicated to the Serbian who is currently the world's no. 1 tennis player. 

The project took him 5 days to complete with the help from graphic design students Djordje Pastar and Boris Tomic.

World no.1 Novak Djokovic is reportedly set to take part in the US Open, but only if the officials agree to waive off the quarantine requirement upon returning to Europe.

Meanwhile players around the world are still in doubt whether to take part in the upcoming US Open after the organisers announced the Grand Slam would go ahead despite an ongoing pandemic. Officials decided to go ahead with the major tournament from 31 August to 13 September, with the Rome and Madrid Masters planned between the French Open a few weeks later. The issue with some players is missing the Madrid and Rome Masters could impact their ranking points more than missing the Grand Slam in New York. 

Players such as Australian Nick Kyrgios have also expressed concerns about holding the tournament in the current climate. Rafael Nadal is set to miss defending his US Open title to prepare for a 13th Roland Garros.
