Novak Djokovic: 'It all creates the image of success'

2022 has turned out to be a great challenge for the best number one in history. Novak Djokovic, who has held the position of honor in the ATP rankings for the longest time, has had to deal with countless setbacks throughout a season that has kept him from two Grand Slams.

One of the questions asked by all those involved in the "white sport" - players, analysts and fans - is to know how many "big" tournaments the Serb would have won if he had played all the events. That is precisely the great objective that "Nole" has today in his legendary career.

"This year, unfortunately, I have missed two Grand Slams. Those are the tournaments where I want to play my best tennis. It has not been so difficult to maintain the physical tone during this time, but it has been more demanding on an emotional level, due to the circumstances that I have encountered this year, which had never happened to me.

Physically, luckily, my body has been grateful for more time without weeks of constant competition, I've managed to keep my body in shape, but we'll see how I feel on the track. The disadvantage of not playing as much is that you don't have as much competitive riding, you don't have as many sensations on the track.

Apart from the Laver Cup, my last game was a little over three months ago. I really want to compete", commented the current number seven in the world during his participation in the ATP 250 in Tel Aviv.

Djokovic opens up on his approach

Novak Djokovic has revealed his strategy for achieving unprecedented success on the court.

“There isn’t one secret or one key that solves all the problems. It’s a combination of things that are part of your character: who you are, how you train, what’s your lifestyle,” he told reporters on Wednesday.

“It all creates the image of success. That formula has worked for me”. He says that he is also always open to experiment and try new things and says that he is inspired to innovate by the next generation of stars who he feels are changing the game.

“I also try some new things, because I always want to progress. Especially when you have guys like Alcaraz, who is full of power and adrenaline. So you always have to figure out how to improve and take yourself to a higher level,” he continued.
