French Open sensation Olga Danilovic highlighted to a reporter that speaking about Novak Djokovic was nothing new to her but still respectfully proceeded to answer their question amid one of the best runs of her career.

Danilovic, ranked at No. 125 in the world, pulled off one of the biggest early upsets of the French Open women's event when she as a qualifier came from a set down to beat world No. 10 Danielle Collins 6-7 (3) 7-5 6-4. After sending Collins home, Danilovic also created a very impressive comeback to overcome Donna Vekic 0-6 7-5 7-6 (8).

So far at this year's French Open, Danilovic has won a total of six matches - three in the qualifying and three main draw matches. As a result, the 23-year-old Serb has been through to her first round-of-16 at a Grand Slam. 

To no one's surprise, reporters asked Danilovic a Djokovic-related question following her latest French Open win. It should be noted that Danilovic and Djokovic played mixed doubles together for Serbia earlier this year at the United Cup.

"Novak is such a huge figure around the world, but just talk a little bit about his role in Serbia and if you've met and spoke with him, has he shared anything with you?" one question that Danilovic received read.

Danilovic: I have answered this question a billion times but I'll do it again

After listening to the reporter's question, Danilovic underlined that many times in the past she spoke about record 24-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic and his influence. But still, she was kind enough to answer the question once again.

"I've talked about Novak a billion times. I mean, don't get me wrong, I will talk again. For me, it's no problem," Danilovic responded.

"What we have in Serbia, I'm not sure if we appreciate it much because he is the best player in the world. Having that kind of person in the same sport as me, for me, he's just a very humble and nice guy. Especially that he's the No. 1 in the world and for me, he's the greatest of all time.

"But, that he's really proud to represent the country, that he's really open for us to talk. I come to him with some day-to-day struggles that I have on-court, and he's really happy to share his thoughts with me. What he learned, what kind of mistakes he did, so maybe I don't have to do them. It's just something I try to appreciate as much as I can."

In her next match, Danilovic will be taking on reigning Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova.
