In an interview to Sport Klub, Filip Krajinovic's new coach Thomas Johansson dropped a major praise on Novak Djokovic who won two Grand Slams this year, Wimbledon and US Open, and returned to the top of the rankings. Djokovic ended his season losing to the 21-year-old Alexander Zverev at the ATP Finals' championship clash in London.
'Since he was 14, he was dedicated, disciplined and had said that he wanted to be no. 1 in the world,' said Johansson about the 14-time Grand Slam winner. 'He has achieved so much, probably more than even himself imagined.
He is back where he belongs, he might become the best player ever because I think he is not done yet. He made the smartest move by bringing back Vajda and his old team.' About Krajinovic, Johansson added: 'He is a talented player that moves well and has all the shots.
The reason why he hasn‘t cracked Top 10 until now is that he needs to be a bit more professional and to work a bit harder. That is why I am here. We will train here for a few more days, then we will go to Monte Carlo because there are many other tennis players Filip can train with like Djokovic, Wawrinka, Coric.
It will be very good. Doha and Melbourne will follow.' Djokovic will start the new season in Doha, where he is a two-time former champion. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
