World No. 2 Novak Djokovic is looking forward to traveling to Sydney for the ATP Cup knockout stage as he expects the Serbian team to have a big support there. Djokovic, a 16-time Grand Slam champion, delivered for his side in Brisbane to help them finish on top Group A with a perfect 3-0 record and clinch a quarterfinal berth in Sydney.
Former world No. 1 Djokovic won each of his three singles matches in Brisbane and also played the doubles with Viktor Troicki in the deciding rubber against France. "Sydney's got a big Serbian community, hopefully the support can be as good as it was here, even better.
It's a team competition, it's how I personally treat it, and that's how it feels for all of us. So having that journey through various places in Australia together feels like a World Cup to us a little bit, which I've never felt,” Djokovic said, per the ATP Cup.
“It's quite exciting, to be honest. And now we are a family. We have been together now almost 10 days, and keep on going, so hopefully the success will follow as well."
