After winning the Australian Open, Djokovic aims to stay in first place for as long as possible and to play as much as possible, because that is the only way he can keep the leading position “Now, after achieving the historic No 1 for the longest weeks, it’s going to be a relief for me because I’m going to focus all my attention on slams mostly,” he said, as quoted by tennismajors “When you are going for No 1 rankings, you kind of have to be playing the entire season and you have to be playing well, you have to play all the tournaments.
“My goals will adapt and will shift a little bit, which means that I will have to adjust also my calendar – not have to, but I will have an opportunity to do that which, as a father and a husband, I’m really looking forward to."
"Judging by what we’re seeing around the world, having family on the road with me will be a very difficult task, because if I’m going to travel around, I have to take my coaches and everything, and we have rules in place that don’t allow really more people than I think two people on the tournaments to travel with you, other than slams”.
Novak Djokovic is a family man who tries to spend as much time as possible with his family and will try to continue to do so in the future. “I will have to revise my schedule comparing to the last year or any other season before this.
I explained my reasons why. Obviously, time away from family definitely is something that has an impact on me." "I’ll have to see with these rules and regulations and restrictions in place all over the world, Europe, not being able to take my family on the road is something that is a big problem for me."
Djokovic misses his children a lot and seems to have a hard time falling apart from them. However, he is aware that many people have the same problem and that the positive thing is the existence of technology and telephones through which he can see his family.“ "Well, when I’m on the road, of course, I have to try to use the most of my time on the road and make my absence from the home value, try to make a big success as a reason why I’ve traveled so far and for so long without seeing my kids and my wife."
"Of course, I miss them. I mean, at times it rips my heart apart, to watch my kids. Thankfully to technology you can see them on FaceTime and everything. But not being close to them, being separated for a long time… “But there are so many people around the world that suffer much more than I do, so I can’t really sit here and complain.
Of course, I’ve been very fortunate in my life. I truly do miss them. I can’t wait to see them”.
