World number 1 Novak Djokovic has emphasized that he is still playing the game because he still has a passion and spark for tennis. Djokovic, who took the ninth Australian Open record last February, now has 18 Grand Slam titles in his collection and is closer to his goal of breaking the all-time Grand Slam record.
Djokovic recently made it past Roger Federer as number 1 in the world for most of the weeks. “I have said many times in the past that the main reason I keep playing professional tennis is to love the sport.
I mean folks, if I hadn’t really loved the competition … There wouldn’t be any other reason for me to compete, there is no pressure whatsoever. I keep playing because I still feel the fire and the desire to win and because I have the support of my closest ones.
I will go on as long as it is, “Djokovic told Tennis Majors.
Djokovic emphasizes that every athlete must have clear goals and visions
“I think every athlete has to have goals ahead of them.
This allows him to know where point A and point B are and how to get from one to the other. By setting goals, you will achieve the mental clarity necessary to stay disciplined, responsible, and organized.
In a word, a dipstick is needed. I’ve had periods in my life when I didn’t have a clear vision. During that time, I didn’t know what I wanted or which direction I was going, and it didn’t end well for me.
My parents and also my tennis parents taught me to always have a clear concept of what I want to achieve, how do I want to achieve it and with whom, “added Djokovic. Photo credit: Tennis365
