Miomir Kecmanovic shared how Novak Djokovic encourages him and the other Serbian players to give their best in every training session. Kecmanovic said: “Obviously, sometimes you don't feel like doing anything. You feel like not practising or maybe quitting.
And to hear him saying, 'No, you have to keep going. Push through it,' give some encouraging advice like that, I think that helped me a lot." Filip Krajinovic, speaking about Djokovic, added: “He's amazing, one of the best ever.
So it's a pleasure, and we are so proud to have him. And, of course, he gives us advice. He went through all [these situations] like we are now. So we are very pleased and happy that we have Novak." Djokovic praised Dusan Lajovic for his 2019 season: “I think it's great for Serbian tennis.
I think it's important that other players from Serbia are also doing really well in big tournaments. That inspires, obviously, many younger tennis players to dream big. He hasn't surprised me with the level of tennis on clay, because I knew that he has the ability to play at a really high level.
But to do it day after day at such a big tournament and to win against big players like Dominic Thiem is phenomenal, and I congratulate him for the great success," concluded the world No. 2.
