The unit is at Eighty Seven Park, an 18-story luxury tower designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano.

Measuring 2,241 square feet, the corner apartment has a 1,715-square-foot wraparound terrace and direct ocean views, according to the listing, from Carlo Dipasquale of Cervera Real Estate and Wendy Mendoza of Cayhill + Dumott Real Estate. It has three bedrooms, 3½ baths and 10-foot ceilings.

The Serbian tennis player paid $5.77 million for the property in November 2019, according to public records. He listed it the following month for $7.15 million, according to Zillow.

“When we listed the market was soft, but obviously it picked up because of the pandemic,” said Ms. Mendoza, who said Mr. Djokovic never lived in the unit. “He held out … He was able to sell for more than he purchased.”
