The 35-year-old from Belgrade put on a true display of strength at Melbourne Park, dropping just one set during the tournament and demolishing all of his rivals starting in the round of 16. However, he ended up in the eye of the storm due to his father Srdjan and the left hamstring injury he sustained in Adelaide.

In fact, many have doubted the veracity of this physical problem. In an interview with 'Tennis Majors', Djokovic stated that he will show medical evidence confirming the extent of his injury. Novak Djokovic has told 'TennisMajors' that he has made the decision to show medical evidence to confirm the extent of his hamstring injury in his left leg.

"I feel the need to prove the veracity of my problems because some comments have bothered me. Soon I will go into details and offer proof, not so much for those who doubt, but for me and all the people around me," said the tennis player.

Serbian, who insisted on the difficulty he has had in dealing with this physical problem and on the obligation imposed by his medical team not to train on the days that he did not have a match."

Following his win at the Asia-Pacific Major, Novak Djokovic sat down to speak with a young Australian fan during his trophy photoshoot.

"When I was eight, I was in my room, in Belgrade Serbia, where I'm from, and I was making the improvised Wimbledon trophy out of the materials that I had in the room. I was making like a little toy and I had a game with myself and I was looking in the mirror, holding this trophy and saying that I will be a Wimbledon champion one day.

So, that was the tournament I always dreamt of winning," he revealed. "This has been one of the most challenging tournaments in my life, considering what happened last year. There is a reason why I’ve played my best tennis in Australia.

I try to pinch myself and live through these moments. This is probably the biggest victory of my life, considering the circumstances," he said.
