In an interview, as quoted by the New York Times, Serbian player Janko Tipsarevic praised Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal for their consistent effort. Tipsarevic said: “These guys have more than 50 Grand Slams combined, and they are still constantly working to improve.
I was in Novak’s box for the first round of the Australian Open this year. He won easily, and I saw a difference in his return. He was holding the head of the racket higher. I know his game inside out, and I asked him after the match in the locker room, ‘Did you change your return?’ And he said yes and that they had been working in the off-season to make him feel much more compact on faster balls coming his way.
So imagine this: A guy who has not only the best return of today but of all time, nobody is close, was working in the off-season to improve his return. This is how obsessive these guys are”. One of the best career memories for Tipsarevic just belongs to the Davis Cup: “It’s been 20 years.
I don’t feel I love Serbia more than anyone else on the team or any normal Serbian person. The main reason I played so many years was I loved playing with the guys here”. Filip Krajinovic said: "It was a tough match with Tsonga.
We all know who is Tsonga and how he's playing for his team, for France. I think I was really ready for this match because we (knew) a long time ago this is going to happen, that we, or me or Tsonga, will decide who's going to pass this group.
And I had a very good preparation for this. And with my team, we had a good tactic and now it's really I come today and I did everything what I need to do. I'm really happy and thankful that I won today and we hope we're going to -- we hope that Novak will win and we go win one."
