Novak Djokovic: Don't ask me more questions about younger players

At Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic commented on his, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's dominance. The Serbian player, in the press conference after defeating David Goffin, said: "I'm just glad to be one of the guys who is 30-plus and to be still in that group.

Don't ask me more questions about young tennis players, when is their time to come up because we've talked about it. I said that eventually is going to happen. It doesn't seem like it's happening on Grand Slams.

I guess this is where, especially Nadal, Federer, and myself, in a way we go onto next level in terms of tennis and focus. "We're very dedicated to these tournaments. In particular at this stage of all of our careers, this is what matters the most for us.

I've been playing best tennis in this tournament in the last two rounds, fourth round and today. Especially today second set and third set against Goffin, who was in form, I felt like I managed to dismantle his game and find always the right shots.

Very pleased with the performance. This match could have gone different way. I was break down. He was the better player for most of the first set. But I managed to turn things around. Yeah, I feel very good on the court, confident, going for the shots, trying to come to the net, as well, be more aggressive, use the short balls.

Hopefully serve also can be consistent because I'm going to need that. Especially on grass, you're going to need a lot of free points on the first serves. That's obviously a big advantage coming into last four."
