Scekic claims she was under the impression she had been approached with a business opportunity and that she had no idea she would allegedly be asked to secretly film herself sleeping with the 18-time Grand Slam winner – with cash and a free holiday being offered as payment
Speaking to the magazine, she said: ‘It is true that a guy contacted me. I know him from (London) and I considered him a serious guy.
‘I am familiar with their work and they were good. When he asked me for a date, I thought it was for a business matter. However, as the conversation progressed, I saw that it had nothing to do with my life.
‘I thought it was a hidden camera when he told me that I had to seduce Novak and film it, but not to worry about that because he was already taking care of that.
‘He told me I could get about 60,000 euros for that and a trip wherever I wanted. I laughed, expecting him to say it was a joke, but the man was very serious. I felt very offended and humiliated.
‘They were really preparing a hell of a plan. I was told to take Novak somewhere to an intimate place and film it all.’
Djokovic and his wife Jelena (both pictured) have been married since 2014 and have two children together, Stefan, six, and Tara, three
After hearing the extortion proposal, Scekic claims she stormed away from the meeting.
Djokovic and his wife Jelena have been married since 2014 and have two children together, Stefan, six, and Tara, three.
In 2017 rumours of alleged infidelity surfaced, with commentator John McEnroe blaming the tennis star’s poor form on ‘off-court issues with the family’.
However, the world number one has repeatedly denied allegations of having cheated on his wife, and last year said: ‘I understand that it is more interesting for people to read Nole and Jelena are getting divorced than Nole and Jelena are in love.
‘But that doesn’t affect Jelena and me because we love each other.’
Scekic described Djokovic as an ‘exemplary man’ and said she hopes by making her experience public, she can prevent the extortion operation from damaging the world tennis number one’s marriage
Scekic now hopes that by speaking out about her experience, she will be able to prevent the extortion operation from damaging Djokovic’s marriage.
She said she considered throwing her drink over the man that made the proposal but decided against it because the meeting was in a public place.
Scekic described Djokovic as one of her country’s greatest ambassadors and an ‘exemplary man’.
Novak Djokovic is ranked as the world number one tennis player and has set a new record for the longest period at the top.
Also among his achievements are 18 Majors and 36 Masters 1000 titles.
Earlier this week, Djokovic’s father Srdjan said that his son was the greatest tennis player of all time.
Tennisworldusa.org reports that he said: ‘He is the best, and everything in the world of tennis depends on him. He can lose, but not because his opponent outplayed him, but because he allowed his opponent to beat him.’
