'Novak Djokovic loves tennis history too much for that', says legend

He is currently busy with his Serbia in the Davis Cup but Novak Djokovic continues to talk about tennis at 360 degrees. The Balkan champion talked about many issues and released the following statements to the local media: "Seeing the current young tennis players I notice that there are some parts of me in them, I think about things like self-confidence, a great desire to win, passion and devotion to sport.

I see them particularly in Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and I already saw them a few years ago in Alexander Zverev when he entered the circuit." Novak Djokovic lived an extraordinary season where he won three Grand Slam titles and was one step away from the Grand Slam Calendar as he lost only in the last match, the final of the US Open against the Russian Daniil Medvedev.

Nole also talked about his behavior on the pitch, even when he sometimes tends to exaggerate: "I can be capricious and emotional in some cases, I like it in general when someone shows emotion and I like myself sincerely in those moments but at the same time I know how to remain composed in the moments that matter.

This skill is acquired through time, the more games of the genre you play on big stages and the more you will be able to manage yourself the next time you take the field "Nole also spoke about the advice she regularly receives and which is always useful: "Their advice always comes at the right times and that's always what I need to hear.

I talk about my closest friends or my family and of course my team, no one knows me better than them and they always try to tell me what I need to hear."

Boris Becker on Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic enjoyed incredible success on the ATP tour this year.

By winning three Grand Slams along with clinching several Masters 1000 titles, the Serbian star is all set to continue his dream run next year as well. Even people involved in the Djokovic camp before shared their opinion on his participation at the Australian Open.

Boris Becker, who worked with the Serb from 2014 to 2016, felt that it would be impossible for him to imagine Djokovic not playing the ‘Happy Slam’. “I can’t imagine that he won’t play in Australia.

He loves the sport too much for that, he loves tennis history too much for that. He wants to reach the 21 Grand Slam wins. Australia is his best Grand Slam. He has already won nine times there. Why shouldn’t he win a 10th time?”, Becker told a German podcast.
