Novak Djokovic, the world's top tennis player who grew up in Belgrade as NATO air strikes blasted the Serbian capital in 1999, hit out Sunday at US plans to take military action against Syria.

Serb star Djokovic as well as former women’s number one Ana Ivanovic both vividly recall sheltering from the attacks that were launched against the rule of Serb hardman leader Slobodan Milosevic.

Djokovic, 26, said that any attack against Syria would be ill-advised and counter-productive.
