Canadian tennis coach Rob Steckley recently lauded Novak Djokovic's dedication to his principles, explaining how it takes a great deal of courage for someone, especially in the Serb's position, to go against the tide.
"Nadal and Djokovic are incredible at being able to stay out on the road," Steckley began. "I think they're at a different stage in their career or whatever, they want to accomplish different things. You have Djokovic who is sticking to his beliefs on you know against, what was it, not getting fully vaccinated? I'm definitely not statistically inclined so bear with me, but I do know that his beliefs are something that he believes in and that's what he stands by and it's crazy to think that somebody that's in his position is going to stick to his guns amongst everything that's happening against the world. So he's basically going against it. I find that also incredibly admirable," Steckley added.
