Novak Djokovic underlined that "no one is invincible" but admitted that he loves the aura around him that makes people think that he is pretty much unbeatable. This past week at the Paris Masters, Djokovic struggled with a stomach issue and also dealt with a back issue.

But still, Djokovic was able to win his first tournament since the US Open and lift his sixth title of the year. Following his Paris win, Djokovic improved to 51-5 on the season. "No one is invincible, but I am glad that there is this aura around me, that people think I am invincible and that the players feel it on the court.

That's very important to me. I want them to feel that because it puts me at a mental advantage over them," Djokovic told Sport Klub.

Djokovic sets his eyes on a strong end to the season

After winning his 24th Grand Slam at the US Open, Djokovic also won his 40th Masters title in Paris.

Now, Djokovic has two more tournaments left on his 2023 schedule - the ATP Finals and the Davis Cup Final 8. At the ATP Finals, Djokovic will be returning as the defending champion and aiming to win his seventh title at the prestigious season-ending tournament.

When it comes to the Davis Cup, Djokovic landed Serbia its first Davis Cup title in 2010 and now he wants to deliver another Davis Cup glory to his nation. "My goal is to end up the season on the high note, on the highest note possible.

The players that are not fighting for the World Tour Finals like Grigor, they have more motivation to end up this last tournament of the season on a high note, but you also have players who are very tired, and there are also players who are fighting who have a ticket for Turin.

So I'm one of the players who are very motivated to end up the season on a high note. With all of the emotion and the energy from the public this week in Paris, every day I find the motivation to play my best tennis in Paris, in Roland Garros or here in Bercy," Djokovic said.
