Serbia’s Novak Djokovic is happy to play in the final of his 32nd Grand Slam tournament, but claims “the job is not over”. He anticipates a tough end against the talented Nick Kyrgios, whom he admires and talks about to remember that he never won.
In an on-court interview, shortly after achieving his eighth final at Wimbledon, Djokovic analyzed his performance in a four-set victory over Cameron Nori: “I didn’t start well, he was better in the first set, he did it well.” Grand Slam semi-finals, I’ve played a lot of semi-finals, but it’s never easy to get on the court for a game like this, there’s a lot of pressure, and it takes me a while to find myself. Cameron has something to lose No, but it wasn’t easy for them, even playing at home in front of their fans is a lot to manage. They had a great tournament and I wish them all the best for what’s to come “
Djokovic further explained that the day is very hot in London and that for this reason he had difficulty finding return times and other details due to additional wear and tear.
The Serbian was asked about being in the final of his 32nd Grand Slam tournament, having played 68 tournaments at this level, and only stated: “The job is not over”, recalling that the final is to be played on Sunday. .
Regarding the grand finale, Noelle was asked what he expects for a duel against Australian Nick Kyrgios. “Sure, the fireworks will go off. (laughs) It will be a game full of different emotions, I would say”, he scored as the audience broke into applause as they heard the Australian name. “I’m saying he doesn’t have much to lose, in fact, that’s how he always plays, takes risks. He’s a good guy, he knows how to play very well, he’s got the best serve and He’s playing well. It’s going to be an interesting game”, he continued.
The Serbian recalled that he had never beaten the Australian in two doubles for the ATP 500 bracket in Acapulco (Mexico) and the Masters in Indian Wells (USA) in 2017: “We haven’t played against him in a long time. And I’ve never beat him. Set, I hope Sunday will be different. It’s a new final for me, I hope this experience works in my favour”, he concluded.
