'Novak Djokovic had lost his way of thinking' - Patrick Mouratoglou

Patrick Mouratoglou commented on Novak Djokovic's comeback at the Monte Carlo Masters. Serena Williams' coach thinks the Serbian can be at a great level again, after having some tough months.

'I think Novak came back too early, he had surgery not so long ago,' Mouratoglou told Sky Sport Italy about Djokovic playing in Indian Wells and Miami last month. 'He stopped for six months to fix that injury, he came back, it didn't work. He was still feeling pain and then got surgery. He is better now, I saw him practice at my academy. I am happy that he took back his former coach (Marian Vajda) that had so much success with him. That's having a clean state of mind because he had kind of lost the way he was thinking, that was why he was so good, he was really really an incredible fighter. He played so many matches, he was so tough. It's more about how he sees the game and his mentality that was not the same as before. If he gets it back, he will be dangerous again because everything else is here.'
