A memorable night for Serena, Djokovic



The International Tennis Federation hosted the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris on Tuesday and World No 1s Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams were honoured at the annual function.

Both tennis stars took to the internet to share their joy with fans.

Posting pictures of the event, Djokovic wrote on Facebook, "Tonight was the annual Champion dinner organized by ITF where many people gather to celebrate tennis and its champions. For the second year in a row I was fortunate to be the one taking the trophy home.

Thank you ITF, i'll keep working hard to make my repetitive appearances here year after year. I enjoy collecting beautiful trophies."
