Novak Djokovic had one super cute supporter cheering him on in the Australian Open finals on Sunday. The world number one beat Andy Murray in straight sets to win the tournament for the sixth time, much to the excitement of his young son Stefan who was watching at home.
A sweet seven-second video posted by Novak's wife Jelena shows the 15-month-old pointing at the television and calling out to his mum as he watches his dad compete.

"We are watching mommy – daddy #teamdjokovic #nolefam #AusOpen #final," Jelena captioned the video, which has been liked over 7,000 times and retweeted by over 3,000 fans – including tennis champion Novak.
The 28-year-old shared the video on Twitter following his victory, telling fans: "Starting the countdown… 2 more days #homesweethome #mywholeworld."
Novak married Jelena in July 2014 after nine years of dating. The couple welcomed their baby boy three months later, and the Serbian pro has made no secret of how much he misses his family while he is travelling with work.

Writing on Facebook ahead of Stefan's first birthday in October, Novak wrote: "It's been an amazing year with lots of travel but this is the place I always come back to, and always want to be. Home with my wife and son and dogs #familytime #happymoments."
Novak faced Andy Murray in the final, who is also soon set to become a father as his wife Kim Sears is expecting their first child any day now. The Scottish player was keen to be reunited with his wife as soon as possible following his defeat, declaring that he would be on the "next flight home" from Australia after the match.
Addressing his heavily pregnant wife, who was watching at home, Andy said: "You've been a legend the past two weeks. Thanks for your support and I'll be on the next flight home."
