Novak Djokovic on injury break: 'Everything was unknown for me'

In a recent interview Novak Djokovic analyzed the difficult moments he went through in the last months. The Serbian tennis player admitted it was some difficults months especially mentally because he had to get used to a total new situation. 'I went through many ups and down and changes in terms of rackets and team, and at the beginning of the year the surgery influenced a lot my technique and my serve', Djokovic explained.

'I found myself in those circumstances where everything was unknown, because I was lucky and grateful to get amazing results in the last ten years. And when I lost more matches than the ones I played in the first months after surgery, I have to admit that it was a very strange feeling, but I learned to be patient.

It's difficult to gain confidence and it's very easy to lose it. I wanted to play as soon as possible, but I was not ready. All of this was a big school, learning from myself and finding ways to strengthen me and build a base for the future.

There were moments where I questioned myself. It's normal, I am a man like everyone and that's life. Ups and down, nothing can stay the same. I had to go through a time to know myself as a husband and parent rather than a player and find a balance.' Djokovic also spoke about his son Stefan's interests: 'Stefan is very involved in sports, tennis and football.

He spends a lot of time outside, he has friends in Serbia and Monaco and there are a lot or players who have kids in the tournament. We are happy for how everything works.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
