(Tennis Majors) - No one works harder than Novak Djokovic in training, no one prepares better for matches, no one is more disciplined when it comes to practice or getting the best out of his game.
It’s part of the reason he’s won 24 Grand Slams, along with his talent and incredible dedication and motivation that does not seem to be wilting with his age.
But sometimes, even someone as great as Djokovic needs something extra, something to get him over the line when his mind starts to question whether his body has anything left. It’s then that he calls on greater forces.
“(I can rely) on God and guardian angels,” Djokovic told Serbian media, after winning his record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title at the US Open on Sunday night.
“In moments when I don’t feel my legs anymore, when I don’t have any strength left, when the ball is blurry… in those moments, I hope for divine intervention.”
Novak Djokovic is asked what he’s thinking in that moment when he goes down on his knees after winning slam number 24.
