Sleeping, praying, stretching, drinking water, eating, spending time with the family, you don’t have to skip anything. This is how he feeds his day and that is a good energy that fuels his purpose.” Jelena did not forget to mention that as an individual, Novak is a caring individual.

Obradovic comments on Novak Djokovic

Former Serbian Davis Cup captain Bogdan Obradovic spoke to Reuters about Novak Djokovic’s career. Obradovic believes the biggest turning point in Djokovic’s career came in 2010 when he helped Serbia win their maiden Davis Cup title. “Winning the 2010 Davis Cup title was a turning point in Novak’s career but first and foremost, it was the result of an eight-year long process of building him into the player and man he has become,” Obradovic told Reuters. Interestingly, Lindsay Davenport made an interesting comparison between Djokovic and Serena Williams’ 2015 season. Similar to the Serb, Serena had entered the US Open in 2015, looking for the Calendar Slam. She had even reached the semifinals. “How much credit can we give Novak? Because for six matches, he’s looked just fine. He hasn’t cracked under pressure; he’s been so focused. And I loved this quote the other night after beating Zverev.”
