Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has donated 100,000 USD to the Serbian Monastery Gračanica in Kosovo and Metohija, reports Sedmiza.ru, citing the official website of the Raska-Prizren diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

According to this report, the donation is earmarked for the purchase of a parcel of land located near the medieval monastery. The monastery was forced to purchase the parcel at a very high price; otherwise, it would have been permanently disassociated from the Serbian Orthodox Church.

The monetary donation was transferred to the monastery through the humanitarian "Novak" fund.
