Marian Vajda, Novak Djokovic's coach, commented on the particular moment that the world no. 2 is experiencing currently. His form dropped a bit mentally and physically after the Roland Garros title, but Vajda isn't worried by these ups and downs.
'You have to take into consideration many things: Novak won four Majors in a row, which didn't happen since Rod Laver', Vajda said to Le Parisien. 'He put a lot effort and in Paris you saw it. Then the concentration dropped, and after many years you knew it could come.
At these levels, the concentration is extreme every week. Andy Murray deserves to be world no. 1, but Novak is there. He is still himself, he loves to train.' Djokovic had some physical issues as well in these months since Wimbledon.
He suffered a wrist injury that forced him to withdraw from Cincinnati. but at some point they thought about withdrawing from US Open, a tournament where he reached the final beating only one top-10 player, Gael Monfils. Although the draw was good, it was an unexpected result.
'It was a miracle, reaching a Grand Slam final is always very tough.'
