Reading is one of the most favorite hobbies during free time of athletes: a Serbian journalist asked to Novak Djokovic what his favorite readings about him are, during a press conference at the Roland Garros 2022. Nole answered: "Right now I'm reading a book by a not very famous Russian writer, who talks about breathing techniquess.
Based on physiology and anatomy, you illustrate certain breathing techniques that allow you to raise your energy level or relax. I like reading books on health and psychophysical well-being. My wife often criticizes me for carrying many more books than I can read.
I also carry at least a dozen books during the week-long tournaments. I choose which book to read according to my mood." The Serbian also spoke of his relationship with social media: "I also use them, but each individual must learn to control the time he spends on the Internet.
Social media are interesting, but they also hide negative sides. They are now part of our life and we cannot pretend that they do not exist. I have two young children and I am aware that in a short time they could have something to do with it."
Novak Djokovic's season till now
The semi-final in Madrid and the victory at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia made Nole understand that he was on the right path.
The 35-year-old from Belgrade hopes to win his 21st Major soon, so as to match his eternal rival Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings. But at the beginning of the season, Djokovic has encountered a lot of difficulties in this early 2022.
Due to his choice not to get vaccinated against Coronavirus, the world number 1 was unable to defend the title at the Australian Open and suffered serious image damage. Strict US regulations forced him to miss the Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000s as well.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion needed more time than expected to regain top form, as evidenced by the premature eliminations in Dubai and Monte Carlo.
