Novak Djokovic: 'I'M Grateful To Them For Being There'

‘I’m grateful to them for being there’


Novak Djokovic will miss the Davis Cup qualifying round after not being designated for the tie between Serbia and Norway. Between February 3 and 5, Serbia will meet outside of Norway. The date of the tie is very awkward, since it will take place a few days after the Australian Open.

For the tie between Serbia and Norway, the captain of the Serbian Davis Cup team, Viktor Troicki, has designated Miomir Kecmanovic, Filip Krajinovic, Laslo Djere, Hamad Medjedovic and Nikola Cacic. Djokovic, who is looking to win his 10th Australian Open title in January, decided not to participate in the Davis Cup tie.

During pre-season, Serbian Davis Cup captain Troicki was asked about Djokovic’s availability for the tie between Serbia and Norway. At the time, Troicki was unable to confirm Djokovic’s involvement, but also noted that Serbia have other quality players.

«We expect Novak to play in Melbourne until the end and therefore it remains to be seen if he will be able to be with us in Norway. But we have a strong team and I expect the rest of the team to be ready. We play away.» , they have the third (ranked player) in the world, the others are not really quality players.

That is the first impression. It could have been better, but against them we have a chance, although it all depends on the team we have,» Troicki told Sport Klub at the end of November. Djokovic meanwhile started his 2023 season at the Adelaide International.

At his first tournament in Australia, Djokovic enjoyed a very warm reception. Now, he hopes to receive the same treatment when he arrives in Melbourne for the Australian Open. At Melbourne Park, Djokovic is a nine-time Australian Open champion.

Nole Djokovic won again

In his final against Sebastian Korda in Adelaide, Novak Djokovic did not spare his team. After losing the first set, he was more than upset, he blamed himself. Suddenly, he unleashed his nerves against part of the box and in particular against his brother Marko’s, making various gestures with his hands as if to tell them to leave.

This bloody blow, Nole later regretted as he explained during his speech on the court: “I really want to thank my team. Thank you for supporting me, thank you for tolerating me through thick and thin, like today. I know they didn’t have a great time with me, that she kept looking for them, but I’m grateful to them for being there.»
