I havent had the chance to see them in action..pretty much just read it online, but Novak said something pretty interesting for an interview..
"NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I was just saying in the question before, the bottom line is this is more or less a mental game in the end. Everybody’s physically strong, prepared, hitting the ball clean and well, and working, you know, couple hours a day.
If you go out there and watch the matches of the players who are 60, 50, 60, 70 in the world, they are striking the ball as well as top 5, but the difference is the mental strength and the ability to, you know, cope with pressure and just be stable and consistently dedicated and professional in every sense of that word.
I have been always really dedicated to the sport and working really hard with my team. I’m lucky enough to have a great team of people who is surrounding me and supporting me in every way on and off the court. I think they are doing their jobs great.
It was just a matter of time for me to feel good again on the court, to really have a self belief that I can, you know, win Grand Slams and that I can, you know, push it to the last limit.
It just clicked right now. I knew it’s a long process and I knew it took time. It’s not easy, because you have to deal with the different kinds of things, you know, in your professional life, in your private life. It’s really hard to separate those things if you are emotional. And of course we are all humans, and there are some things that are affecting your professional life.
But it all came up well, and right now it’s all good. So hopefully it’s going to stay like that."
I think he could surprise us even more this year..cant wait for the french open and wimbledon!
He still won't win Wimbledon. No way. And I have a hard time believing he does anything at the French. That is Rafa's play ground.
