Novak Djokovic: 'I found it hard to accept that my results have dropped'

It was an easy first match for Novak Djokovic against the Spaniard Albert Ramos in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The Serbian player, who had played his last match against Nick Kyrgios in Indian Wells, won 6/3 6/4 6/2. ´The elbow is fine, I did well to take a break and today this has been my best serving performance in months, probably.

I feel like I am on the right path, I am happy with the level I am playing at. I am trying to play my tennis again, I found it hard to accept that my results have dropped, but it is natural after so many years at the highest level, but it´s a natural process and I have to accept it.

I have to believe in what I do and I am sure results will come.´ He also commented on how the Davis Cup format should change. ´I kind of gave up on that since I see that ITF doesn´t intend to do anything, but yes, Davis Cup format should change.

If you look at the Davis Cup winners last five years, it is not the best ones playing, it is not what everybody want. It lost its value. We should have something like football World Cup - neutral venue, one competition. It would create a bigger buzz if there were 10-20-30 teams who would play in groups and then knockouts.

I am sure that all the tennis plauers want to play it, because they love their country as much as me. I respect the Davis Cup tradition and history, but it lost its value.´
