Marton Fucsovics shows respect for Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon

Top-ranked Hungarian tennis Marton Fucsovics showed his respect for Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer ahead of his meeting with the Serb. Djokovic, ranked at No. 1 in the world, has 19 Grand Slam titles in his collection as he is aiming to win his 20th Major at Wimbledon.

On the other side, Nadal and Federer each own a record of 20 Grand Slam titles. “I think they are the greatest of all time, all three of them. For me there is no difference between them,” Fucsovics said. “When I play against these guys, of course it's a pleasure for me.

But they bring out the best of me, and I think I can improve my game when I play against them”. Fucsovics has never beaten Djokovic before but he likes playing the Serb as he hopes to have much bigger success against him when they meet at Wimbledon.

“Maybe his game is not so entertaining like Federer's or when Nadal is hitting the ball so hard. Actually, I like to play against him. I can rally with him,” Fucsovics said. “I played him two times, he beat me, but I like the way he plays.

I think we play the same kind of tennis. We like to rally. We like to play long rallies and try to play aggressive from the baseline. He's playing good”.

Fucsovics worked hard to get to where he is now

“I worked very hard for it.

I wasn't born like this,” Fucsovics said. “I was working every day to get this physique”. Fucsovics has noted that he plans to leave it all on the court when he meets Djokovic. “Against Novak, against the top guys, you cannot tell the winning strategy.

I will go out there and try to enjoy every moment, fight for every point,” Fucsovics said. “That will be most important”. Fucsovics made his maiden Grand Slam final at Wimbledon and it's a big thing in his native country.

“I think I will become famous now in Hungary. It's a big thing, a huge thing. But for the moment I'm not thinking about what will happen in Hungary, if I will be in the news or if people will talk about me,” Fucsovics said.

“I think I learned that I have to stay on the ground, and I just have to focus on the next match, to focus on my job, not anything besides tennis”.
