20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic has revealed that he would like to learn to play an instrument. Djokovic, ranked at No. 1 in the world, is one of the greatest players in tennis history but he wants to learn other things outside the tennis court.
"I want to learn how to play an instrument,” he told Prakash Amritraj on Tennis Channel. “So if there’s anybody who plays a really good saxophone, let me know”. On Wednesday, Djokovic saw off Andrey Rublev 6-3 6-2 to improve to 2-0 at the ATP Finals.
"It was really surprising how quick his pace is. He stays close to the line, really goes for it,” assessed Djokovic. “He was making a lot of unforced errors today. I kind of put him out of that comfort zone where he likes to be”.
Djokovic thrilled with his performance
Djokovic broke Rublev twice in each set to improve to 2-0 and continue his bid for a sixth ATP Finals title. “It was great from my side. It was anybody’s game up to 4-3,” said Djokovic.
“I managed to put an extra return in play. Made him come to the net, made a good passing shot. After that, started to swing through the ball more freely from the back of the court. I knew I had to be at my best to dominate him today on the court”.
Rublev, who is enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 5 in the world, admitted he was rushing and overthinking against Djokovic. "I was a bit rushing, a bit overthinking, because every time I was thinking, okay, now I have chance to attack, now I have chance to lead the point, and you start to think for the next two, three shots, and in the end you don't even make this one," Rublev said after losing to Djokovic.
