Novak Djokovic: "Never proud of smashed rackets"

For no athlete it is easy to maintain concentration and manage in the best way the different emotions that a sporting event can generate and create. Novak Djokovic, on more than one occasion, has not been afraid to show his character to the world and has often been criticized for some reactions considered over the top.

The Serbian champion has repeatedly responded badly to people in the crowd ready to criticize him or cheer on the player on the other side of the net. When things don't go according to plan, the Belgrade also comes to express his discontent by breaking his rackets.

A gesture of which he is not proud, which he would not want to make and which leads him to reflect on what to do on the court.

Djokovic: "Breaking a racket doesn't make me proud"

Djokovic told BBC microphones: "What legacy will I leave in tennis? I would like people in the future to remember me for sharing my passion and love for tennis on the court.

For always being honest and authentic, for showing the true emotions of him. Obviously I am not proud of myself when I break the rackets. There are a lot of guys who watch my games and we often talk about role models. I am aware of this.

When I lose control, I let myself down. I always try to work on this aspect. I never want to lose control, but I'm not afraid to admit my mistakes. I would also like to convey positive messages through tennis: inherent in passion, education.

I am grateful to have achieved certain results and I hope to continue breaking records. I love this sport and I want to play every day. I spent a lot of time in my center in Belgrade and I love giving advice to young boys who decide to play tennis." We recall that Djokovic will return to the field at the ATP 500 tournament in Dubai, where he will try to win the title to maintain the first position in the world ranking.

However, everything is in the hands of Daniil Medvedev, who could become the new world number one already in Acapulco.
