In an interview, the volleyball player Jelena Blagojevic commented on Novak Djokovic's 15th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. The Serb said: "In the sports, the technique and tactics can be ruled very well. And from the sports side, everyone can compete at a very good level.
Everything is about what you do on the court and what you can show, a little bit like Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final." "For me, it was a big motivation", she continued about how it felt like to see Djokovic dominating Rafael Nadal.
"I saw the match with Nadal the morning after our match against LKS. Someone could think it went easy - 6: 3, 6: 2, 6: 3, but Novak stays focused, sees the situations and he is able to anticipate them. He just shows the journey to success is long."
She now tries to give her best when she heads into the court: "I love my job. When I started playing volleyball, I put the heart on it. For me, my team is like a second family.' Djokovic said: "I'm a true believer in visualisation.
I do that a lot. I think that I had to do that more than ever in my life 12 months ago after the surgery because I wasn't playing well, I wasn't feeling good on the court, I was questioning everything, I was doubting whether I will be able to play everyone on this level because I didn't know to what extent the operation of my elbow would affect my game."
