It is a fantastic thing when someone from a young age sets a goal to be the best in the world in the field he loves and when he manages to achieve that. And that happened today to Novak Djokovic, the best tennis player in the world, who became the longest-serving ruler of tennis in history.
The Serbian ace started the 311th week of his reign, thus breaking the record held by Roger Federer so far. The Swiss is archived in history, and Djokovic will only continue to increase his record. He has already mathematically secured to sit on the throne for at least 317 weeks.
It was nice that the best racket in the world welcomed this extraordinary achievement in his hometown - Belgrade. "I am immensely happy and proud to achieve great success in the sport to which I am so dedicated and which I love so much, and I am especially happy that I can share that success with all people in Serbia because I know how much it means to them and how much they identify with what I experience ", said Djokovic in a statement for Tanjug.
He remembered now that he was sovereignly watching from the tennis top of his beginnings, his first dreams, and the goals he had set before him. “When I was seven I set some big goals, actually dreams, to win Wimbledon and be number 1.
You know this story from before, but I made the Wimbledon trophy in my room, picked it up, and said I was the champion and number 1." "When those dreams came true in 2011, I was the happiest man in the world, I had all my closest family members and people who allowed me to live the dream with me, and until that moment, of course, I felt Serbia's support, but I didn't understand how much that success is important for the people in our country, how important it is until I came back.
" It was this huge support that he felt in his country that directed the further course of Novak's career. "The day after winning the trophy, I found a large number of people on the streets of Belgrade, success was celebrated all over Serbia and the region, and those people actually showed me that this success is as important to them as it is to me. And somehow, my attitude towards tennis and the proportion of success until then and after that were different. "
