In an interview to Sport Klub, the 2001 Wimbledon winner Goran Ivanisevic commented on his co-operation with Novak Djokovic. The Croatian former player is leaving Wimbledon as he has other commitments but he may comeback later in the second week.
"Unfortunately, I could not postpone them, I have an air flight at 5:30 PM. I will see, I may come back, it depends on how much I can postpone. I was already his fan and now I can watch him from the first row. It's amazing, I have to thank the entire team, especially Marian Vajda, we really get along well with each other.
You understand why Novak is No. 1, the communication is amazing, he is a perfectionist and he wants to be better and improve every day." Asked on what aspects he could help Novak to improve, Ivanisevic replied: "He has 5,000 more points than others.
You always need something, you want to be the best." On the tournament overall, Ivanisevic concluded: "More or less is going for plans, the surprise was Stefanos Tsitsipas's loss, I thought Marin Cilic could do well but he is not in a good shape.
I think the semifinals will be Djokovic-Raonic and Nadal-Federer." In an interview to ESPN, Diego Schwartzman commented on his third round Wimbledon loss to Matteo Berrettini. The Argentinean player lost in five sets wasting three match points.
"For the game level and for how the match was, it would have been nice to reach the second week of Wimbledon for the first time. I achieved it in all the Grand Slams except here. Roger thought I had won, I would have liked to play against him.
It's a shame, but there are many positives from this week and I do not have too many regrets despite now I feel angry", said Schwartzman.
