Novak Djokovic:'Fatherhood made me realize there isn't just tennis in life'

In an interview with Vice Serbia Novak Djokovic explained how becoming a father of two children changed his mindset. The world No. 1 said: "Fatherhood gave me a boost and an unbelievable excitement, I had my best 15 months in career...

But after that French Open after that feeling, being a parent made me realize that there is much more in life. And that I was not careful about some of my parts, that was probably in a sort of shade. Now I am much more confident emotionally.

Self-belief, in my chances and qualities. I know who I am, what I am and what I can do. And if in the end, I cannot do what I had set, I accept the thing much better." Djokovic also reflected on his spiritual side: "I have been meditating for already almost ten years.

Meditation is also about washing plats, looking at stairs. It's all that brings a man being there. We are traditionalist from that point of view and all that's outside what we know gets partly accepted. And there was some misunderstanding.

I have a mainstream meditation: I sit, breath, I am aware of my breath, I am aware of my thoughts, but I do not reflect on it too much and so I get calm." Djokovic has been enjoying some days off with his family after his three-set loss to Roberto Bautista Agut at the Miami Open. We will see if he will be back on track in Monte Carlo or Madrid.
