No matter how 2020 ends, Novak Djokovic will have something to regret. It sounds strange, since so far he has lost only one match on the field in the whole year (Roland Garros) and one at the "green table" (US open), but Djokovic also admits that he is sorry that he does not have another Grand Slam today by the current 17.
"It's a pity I didn't take the US Open or Roland Garros. I was in great shape on both. In the final of Roland Garros, I was not at the level, I had a great opponent and I did not play well. That unfortunate situation happened at the US Open ...
If we don't count New York, I have only one defeat this season, I play tennis for life and this season can be compared to 2011 and 2015, "Djokovic told reporters after training, as quoted by mozzartsport Novak once again confirmed what his plan is for the finish of the year.
"I will play in Vienna, I will skip Paris, so I will play in London. I haven't played in Vienna since 2007-2008, I'm going to the tournament with the highest goals. I don't know if there will be an audience, there are a lot of our people there, I hope to see some of them.
The world's best tennis player plans to play at the Australian Open in January, although there are growing doubts that the tournament will be held at all due to the corona virus. "I still don't know when I will go to Australia, because of my family, all the restrictions ...
I hope it will shorten the quarantine period, but if that doesn't happen, we will have to go earlier. The Australian Open is planned for me to play, and I don't know about the ATP Cup yet. " When it comes to plans for the future, Novak is expected to add gas and reach Federer and Nadal in terms of the number of Grand Slams won, to beat them in the race for the greatest of all time.
"Pressure is an integral part of my life and I have to accept it. It is in the head whether that pressure will be used as propellant. Maybe someone cares that I have the highest ambitions, but that's how I was brought up.
My goal is to be number one historically. I don't think I'm in a difficult situation, I know how to find balance. Sometimes I get tired mentally and physically, but that's life. " Djokovic announced that he would try to restart the tournament in Belgrade.
"We will try to return the professional tournament to Belgrade. The Adriatic tour ended as it ended, but it showed how professionally we can organize it. Personally, I will strive to return the tournament to Serbia, "said Novak Djokovic. The tournament in Vienna, where Djokovic will play, will start on October 26.
