Novak Djokovic: I didn't have time to enjoy French Open win

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic didn't have much time to enjoy his victorious campaign at Roland Garros because he had to quickly switch his focus to the grass season. Djokovic, who now has 19 Grand Slam titles in his collection, recovered from two sets down in the French Open final to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas and lift his second French Open title.

In the semifinal, Djokovic completed one of the toughest tasks in tennis -- beating Rafael Nadal on the clay courts of Roland Garros. “I did not allow myself, I cannot allow myself to enjoy that victory too much because four days later after I won the title I was on the grass courts training,” Djokovic revealed.

“I didn't have too much time really to reflect on what has happened in Paris. That's how it is. That's the tennis season and tennis schedule. I turn the next page”.

Djokovic speaks on the GOAT dabet

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer still hold the all-time Grand Slam record as each have 20 Majors in their collection.

“I understand that people love to debate who is the greatest, who is going to have the most titles, et cetera, et cetera,” Djokovic said. “There's always a lot going on off the tennis court. “But once I'm on the court, I try to lock in and I try to exclude all the distractions.

I feel like over the years, I managed to develop the mechanism that allows me to do that. Everyone has their own special ways to center themselves, how to focus themselves, really direct the energy into what matters the most, which is the present moment.

“I have my own techniques, my own ways. It has been working so far, so I'll try to keep on doing that. Here in Wimbledon particularly I need to just take it day by day and see how far it goes”.
