This was confirmed Wednesday by Kosovo Serb officials, Tanjug news agency reports.
The world number three has previously been made an honorary citizen of the northern, Serb-inhabited Kosovo town of Zvečan.
Đoković, whose family is originally from Kosovo, will be in the province to support the Serbs there and show his solidarity for their struggle to survive, organizers said.
Đoković recently donated a fully equipped ambulance to the Kosovska Mitrovica healthcare center, and is financing the construction of a tennis center in Zvečan.
President of the Serb National Council of Northern Kosovo (SNV) Milan Ivanović said that Đoković will address citizens in the Šumadija Square in the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica at 13:00 CET.
An hour later, the Serbian tennis star is scheduled to meet his supporters in the Zvečan tennis court, said Ivanović.
He called on citizens of northern Kosovo to welcome Đoković tomorrow.
