In an interview to sport.sk Novak Djokovic's coach Marian Vajda was asked if the Serb, who holds 15 Major titles, can catch Roger Federer's 20 crowns. "Definitely. There are five titles left, but why not. Now Novak is in a good shape, he has a family, two beautiful children, all the conditions for another success.
We want to reach Federer", said Vajda after Djokovic's success in Melbourne. On Sascha Bajin speaking about how much hard work it takes to be a successful coach, Vajda added: "I forgot to congratulate him. He won two Grand Slam titles with Naomi, this is not a common thing.
He is right. It's an enormous sacrifice. The coach's role is not easy, not everybody understands it. When someone says that Vajda sits there, takes good money, they should be in my place. Tennis is a show. But for me it's especially satisfaction, like winning a Major title.
More than money. It's a tremendous pressure, being with the player every day and being responsible of his results. You need to be motivated and prepare yourself mentally. Being a good player and having experience in training with Hrbaty, I got where I am."
On Djokovic's Australian Open final win over Rafael Nadal, Vajda added: "It was a dominance. I do not rememeber such short Grand Slam finals. Novak was very disciplinated and he only left the Spaniard some chances on 3-2 but once he managed to get to 4-2, he was clearly above again. He was confident, he hit the ball clear and the result says everything."
