Novak Djokovic should seek Roger Federer’s advice: Ex Davis Cup Coach

Former Serbian Davis Cup coach Bogdan Obradovic feels Djokovic can take a leaf out of Federer's book. “Given that Federer was able to return into the top 10 and win this year's Australian Open at the age of 36, I see no reason why Djokovic can't be the world number one again.

Maybe Djokovic should talk to Federer.” “They are friends, they have known each other for a long time and the Swiss can certainly give him some good advice,” Obradovic told Serbian newspaper Blic. GIving up the top spot in the ATP rankings to Brit Andy Murray in November, Djokovic made a shocking second-round Australian Open exit to Uzbek Denis Istomin followed by successive defeats to Australian Nick Kyrgios in Acapulco and Indian Wells.

According to Obradovic, Djokovic needs to restore meat to his diet. "All other players seem to be galvanized against him while his own motivation appears to be inconsistent and shifting all the time. He is not at his best; his serve keeps fluctuating as do elements in his game which really used to be at highest level consistently.” “However, it is difficult to play at such a high level indefinitely.

Murray has a huge advantage in the standings but I am sure Djokovic will be back in contention for the top spot.” ALSO READ Roger Federer in the same league as Pele, Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali: Boris Becker
