Swiatek congratulated Djokovic on winning the ATP Finals
Even at the age of 35, Djokovic is still dominating and undoubtedly one of the best players in the game.
After winning the ATP Finals, Djokovic clarified what drives him to continue playing at this level. «For me it’s still the hunger that someone asked me about. It’s love for the game, without a doubt. Passion. I love the game.
I already told. Of course, the sport of tennis making history, which of course is my favorite sport, the sport that has given me so many privileges in life and benefits. Why not try it? Why not dream about it? I have no problem verbalizing that I have big goals, that I want to be the best, that I want to win all the tournaments.
I don’t think that’s not humbling, I just feel it’s important to respect everyone in the game but still have confidence in yourself. I don’t see anything wrong with that,» Djokovic said. The 2022 season was almost easy for Djokovic, but that didn’t stop him from ending the year on a very positive note.
After missing two Grand Slam and four Masters tournaments, Djokovic ended the 2022 season strongly. In October, Djokovic captured back-to-back titles at the Tel Aviv Open and Astana Open. This month, Djokovic won the ATP Finals and also finished as runner-up at the Paris Masters. Djokovic’s next goal will be to win a record tenth Australian Open title in January.
