Novak Djokovic has donated 100% of his prize winnings from a tennis tournament in Rome to flood relief in Serbia ... a donation that totaled roughly $750,000.

Djokovic -- who hails from Serbia -- defeated Rafael Nadal to win the Rome Masters in Italy on Sunday ... and immediately dedicated the championship to the people who have died in the massive flooding in the Balkans. So far, at least 43 people are reported dead. 

Now, Novak has announced he has donated the entire cash prize from the tourney -- €549,000 ... which is roughly $750k.  Immediately following the tournament, Novak told the crowd, "It's also a special dedication to my country, which is suffering a lot right now. My heart is with them."

Officials say the flooding in Serbia is the worst in 100 years ... and according to the Red Cross, 300,000 people lost water and electricity.

Wow, that's awesome! More high-paid sports stars should think like this guy. Talking to you Floyd Mayweather! You don't need any more jewellery.

Have you ever heard any other sports superstar earning millions more than Novak and donated this much money to a disaster of their country or state in the case of the USA? I haven't. Very kind heart, very noble act that is why I like him since I noticed his skills and passion in the court back in 2005

I am not a Nole fan but he is going to be Serbia's President at some point.

I give this man credit for donating so much to help his country. For those of you who might say he has so much already, what does it matter. Well, this is his salary. It does matter.
