'Djokovic lives for tennis, wants to beat Roger Federer and Nadal's Majors'

In an interview to Sport Klub the former world No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis spoke about how it feels to work as a TV commentator at the ATP Finals in London. Baghdatis said: "As a former player I am able to analyze what players feel in that moment and understand why something is happening.

It's a good job and it's nice that people can understand the tactical side of the game, to understand what's happening on court. It's funny for everyone." Asked what he thought of Novak Djokovic in the beginning of career, Baghdatis replied: "Even back in the day you could see his perseverance and desire to win.

Now looking at Stefanos Tsitsipas I see in himself that perseverance and desire. I think Djokovic lives for tennis, he loves the game so much, he has the goal of being the greatest ever. So I appreciate him a lot and what he does on court is amazing, he has great baseline points, an amazing serve."

Asked if Djokovic can break Federer and Nadal's Major titles, Baghdatis replied: "I think that's his main goal, he wants it so hard and I am convinced he will not stop until he doesn't overcome Federer and Rafa.

That's what gives him motivation and that's why he is so good: I am convinced he will make it." In an interview to TASS the Russia's tennis chief Shamil Tarpischev spoke about Daniil Medvedev's physical condition.

Tarpischev said: "We are looking at Medvedev closely in London. Clearly he was not fit enough with Nadal, that's a problem. Everything will depend about his recovery in the Davis Cup, his physical condition will be his priority. The situation after his match with Alexander Zverev will be clear."
