Novak Djokovic: 'Roger Federer's Australian Open title shows anything is possible'

Second part of the Novak Djokovic's interview to the Serbian talk show of the RST TV. The World No. 2 praised his rival Roger Federer and the 18th Grand Slam title conquered at the Australian Open this year. 'He won it at 35 age and it shows that anything is possible', Djokovic said. 'He is the example of a person that works much on the prevention, on himself, he takes care about his body.

He has a family too and managed to find a balance to put his effort, to be willing and motivated for the most important tournaments. He tries to get his best results in the Grand Slam tournaments, then if the first position in the Rankings comes, it's okay.

It's not that I want to copy him, but I think it's a situation that we have to deal with when we reach this age.' About the stress of the competition on a physical level, Djokovic said: 'Agassi wrote it in his book, and we players already knew it because we were told about it, that due to back issues he was forced to sleep on the floor.

This is the consequence of having a sports career, you have to make a great effort for a long time. My body feels the 11 years as professional.' He also spoke about the Facebook live conversation with his wife Jelena: 'She was taking a video of my training session, so I wanted to take a picture and she was upset.

It’s kind of funny to see how people reacted to that situation and made it something much bigger while it was nothing. It was actually fun for me.' ALSO READ: Novak Djokovic: 'Tennis is not my No. 1 priority anymore'
