World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been breaking all records as of late. The dominance displayed by him in the current season has never been seen that way. He has won the first three Grand Slam events, in Melbourne, Paris and London this season.
Yesterday Novak Djokovic won his third round match against Japanese player Kei Nishikori. Although he lost the first set, the Serbian managed to find a way and claim the next three sets. Interestingly, there were quite a few notable fans for the world's number one player from Serbia.
Hollywood superstar Hugh Jackman was one of the first people to congratulate Novak by posting a story on Instagram with a message that read, "Let's go." Another interesting supporter was Djokovic's wife, Jelena, who wore a wolf t-shirt that had her husband's face in the form of a shadow.
Reflecting on tennis, Djokovic faced his first real big test yesterday. Although he had beaten Novak 16 times before yesterday's game, Nishikori's experience and shooting are of the highest quality. With that victory, the world's No.
1 player will now face local boy Jenson Brooksby. From this season until now, Novak began by winning his 18th Grand Slam title in Melbourne. After that, he came to Paris and won the French Open for the second time in his career.
During the event, he beat Rafael Nadal in the semifinal, which was one of the biggest victories of this season.
Novak Djokovic exhibits his emotions unabashedly
During his post-match press conference, Novak Djokovic was asked how he wishes to be perceived by people outside of his tennis achievements.
And the Serb, who has seldom enjoyed as much love and adulation as Federer or Nadal, lauded the reporter for the question. "I would like people, particularly my peers, the fellow tennis players, both men's and women's side, to remember me as someone that first of all left his heart out on the court and has inspired maybe players to get better and to improve and to believe in themselves more," Djokovic said.
Djokovic went on to assert he would want to be seen first and foremost as a good human being, and that results aren't as important as earning the respect of people. "All in all, I would love to leave the legacy first of all that is a good human being, someone that people respect as a person, that has good character, and of course then after a tennis player," Novak Djokovic said. "For me those things are more important than results."
