Goran Ivanisevic enjoys his experience as the coach of the world’s leading tennis player. The Croatian coach continues to be surprised by the mentality that Novak Djokovic continues to show with everything and the 20 Grand Slams he has conquered, 3 of them this season.
“The more pressure he has, the better he plays. That’s why he’s a champion. As for me, I’ve said it several times, he’s the greatest tennis player in the history of this sport. I said that seven years ago, when he was still very far from the numbers of Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal that would become a legend in this sport.
Now he has reached her and is on the verge of surpassing her. I think Djokovic is the only person to this day who can win all four Grand Slams in the same year, ”said the former number 2 in the world.
“Right now he’s under pressure. The vast majority of tennis players have it, but novaks this season is more than obvious. He didn’t play seven perfect matches at Wimbledon, but he won anyway.
I didn’t say he would win for sure because you can’t say he can easily win seven matches in a Grand Slam. It’s been two long weeks with lots of games. Anything can happen, “he added.
Commenting on the feelings his student left him in the current edition of the US Open with regard to the 2020 edition, he said: “I am very happy that we have an audience in the stands again, because last year we have another tournament experienced the saddest in history without a spectator in the stands. “
Novak Djokovic on his documentary
Speaking to Sasa Ozmo from the Serbian press at the US Open on Tuesday, Novak Djokovic announced that he and his team had shot a few segments in the last few weeks and could possibly be released as early as the end of 2021.
“In the meantime there have been some changes as we wanted to shoot more material,” said Djokovic. “The current plan is for the documentary to see the light of day later this year or in the first two months of 2022.
We also record things here in New York, “he added.” Then we have to edit it, complete it and decide whether it will be a movie or a documentary series. We will make that decision as a team. ”
