Marian Vajda: It surprises me how much Novak Djokovic is searching for improvements

Coach Marian Vajda says his pupil Novak Djokovic is constantly trying to find ways to improve and get better. Vajda knows Djokovic as well as anyone as he has been a part of the Serb's coaching staff for nearly a decade and a half.

Djokovic, who turned professional in 2003, hired Vajda for the first time in 2006. The two collaborated for 11 years before Djokovic decided to part ways with Vajda in 2017. However, the end of their partnership didn't last long as the Serb returned Vajda to his coaching staff a year later in 2018.

"He (Djokovic) surprises me every day, how much he is searching for improvements. It motivates my mind as well," coach Vajda told Ravi Ubha in Melbourne. Meanwhile, world No. 2 Djokovic is having yet another strong Australian Open run as he is a win away from defending his title at Melbourne Park.

The Serb, a record seven-time Australian Open champion, is set to battle against world No. 5 Dominic Thiem in Sunday's final at Melbourne Park.
