In an interview, the former top ten player Marcos Baghdatis opened up on one of his biggest regrets in career. The Cypriot said: "My semifinal against Rafael Nadal in 2007 Bercy. For a set and a half, I dominated. I lead a set and a break.
I do not know how I lost that match. In those moments, the ball seems to be enormous, you are in the bubble, you do not hear anything. You have the feeling you can place the ball wherever you want to. It's just impressive. Ask Roger how it feels (laughter).
There are amazing moments where it seems you are walking on the cloud. When we go through it, we understand why Roger, Rafa and Novak love tennis more." Djokovic was asked what France represents to him: "France matters a lot to me.
I live in Monte Carlo, on the Cote Azur. I like French culture and its life. I am learning French. Professionalism wise I love playing in your country. The first big tournament I won was in 2006 Metz. At the French Open, I had emotional exchanges with the crowd, as a player and a person, getting to the next level.
I am proud of being Serbian. We got past war. I am proud that people see me as a role model for their children. And I always try to keep it in mind. Because it brings a lot of responsibilities. I try to be fully aware that what I do, on and off the court, can influence someone."
