Novak Djokovic: ‘We are going to make that decision as a team’

Goran Ivanisevic enjoys his experience coaching the world’s number one. The Croatian coach continues to be surprised by the mentality that Novak Djokovic continues to show with everything and the 20 Grand Slams that he has conquered, 3 of them in the current season. “The more pressure he has, the better he plays. That is why he is a champion. For me I have already said it several times, he is the greatest tennis player in the history of this sport. Seven years ago I said this when he was very far from the numbers of Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal, who would become a legend of this sport. Now they have matched him and he is very close to surpassing them. I think that, to this day, Djokovic is the only person who can win all four Grand Slams in the same year, “said the former world 2. “Right now he has pressure. The vast majority of tennis players have it, but Novak’s this season is more than evident. He didn’t play seven perfect games at Wimbledon, but he still won. I did not say that he was going to win for sure because it cannot be said that he can easily win seven games in a Grand Slam. They are two long weeks of many games. Anything can happen,” he added. On the feelings that his pupil leaves him in the current edition of the US Open, with respect to the 2020 edition, he indicated: “I am very happy that we once again have an audience in the stands, because last year we witnessed a different tournament, the saddest in history without an audience in the stands.”

Novak Djokovic on his documentary 

Speaking to Sasa Ozmo from the Serbian press at the US Open on Tuesday, Novak Djokovic disclosed that he and his team had shot a few segments over the last few weeks, and that it could possibly release as early as the end of 2021. “There have been some changes in the meantime, since we wanted to shoot some more material,” Djokovic said. “At the moment, the plan is for the documentary to see the light of day near the end of this year, or in the first two months of 2022. We are recording stuff here in New York as well,” he added. “Then we need to edit it, to make it whole and to decide whether it is going to be a film or a docuseries. We are going to make that decision as a team.”
