Novak Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 ranked tennis player, will be the subject of a new docuseries coming to Amazon, the streaming service announced Friday. 

Djokovic developed the concept with Alberto Scarpetta to offer “an unprecedented inside look into the life of a tennis legend” throughout the 2017 season. The series will highlight the athlete’s professional life, mental and fitness routines, health and food habits, and charitable work, among other aspects.

“Passion, perseverance, commitment, and self-awareness are key elements of a champion, but these are impossible to maintain without strong support around you,” Djokovic said in a statement. “I am fortunate to have the support of both a caring family and a strong team working with me. My fans have been suffering and celebrating with me from the very beginning of my career on the tennis courts and now I want to share with them all my daily life and what’s important to me — my values, my beliefs, and my habits — and also introduce to them all the amazing people that are always next to me.”

Over the course of his career, Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, six Australian Open titles, three Wimbledon titles, two U.S. Open titles, and one French Open title. 

This is the latest get for Amazon’s original programming, which also includes a reboot of The Tick, a Jack Ryan series starring John Krasinski, and a docuseries about Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner.
