Novak Djokovic: ‘The traces followed for several months after’

Novak Djokovic was left with only shorts and socks after giving away all his clothing and accessories to Serbian fans in Adelaide. On Sunday, Djokovic saved a championship point to beat Sebastian Korda in the Adelaide final 6-7(8) 7-6(3) 6-4. Throughout the week, Djokovic enjoyed great support in Adelaide. The Adelaide Serb community came out to support Djokovic and the Serb certainly benefited from his extraordinary support. After winning his second title in Adelaide, Djokovic took a moment to sign autographs and deliver souvenirs to his supporters. No one knew how Djokovic would fare on his return to Australia. In his first tournament of the season, Djokovic played some great tennis and also received great support. The Adelaide campaign couldn’t have gone better for Djokovic, who is now brimming with confidence heading into the Australian Open. “I couldn’t ask for better preparation and preparation for the Australian Open. Of course, the Australian Open is the main reason I’m here in Australia, but at the same time I want to win every tournament I play in, regardless of the level of the tournament. I love playing in Australia. My results prove it. I couldn’t play as well in a place where I don’t feel good. I’m looking forward to Melbourne. Rod Laver is probably my most successful track of my career. I love playing there. I look forward to it. Now I have a week off to recover and work on specific things in my game, in my body, to get my mind in the right state for the best of five and I hope it will be a long two weeks,” Djokovic said after winning in Adelaide. Heading into the Australian Open, many consider Djokovic the top favorite for the title. The Serbian has already arrived at Melbourne Park, a tournament in which he starts as the fourth seed and where he will seek the tenth crown starting next Monday when the Australian Open begins. The Balkan was unable to play this championship last year, so this will be a special edition.

Djokovic is recovering from injury

Novak Djokovic revealed during the interview that the “traces” of what he went through in Australia stuck with him for a long time. “I just stayed for several weeks at home, didn’t really go around too much, just hoped that the situation would calm down, which it did. But the ‘traces’ stay there, right?” he said. “The traces followed for several months after. And I didn’t know it was going to affect my game as well. Every press conference I was asked a question or two about Australia, about what happened,” Djokovic said. “So even if I [had] moved on the people reminded me of that. I just had to be patient and wait.”
