Novak Djokovic: ‘It was just unbearable’


Cameron Norrie reveals that he has seen Novak Djokovic «bring his own food in little things from Tupperware» and that is the level of commitment he wants to have. Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam champion, has always been known for his strict diet and rigorous training routines.

Djokovic’s absolute commitment to every detail is one of the main reasons why he will become one of the greatest players in tennis history. «I’ve seen him bring his own food to events in little Tupperware containers.

That’s even more meticulous than weighing the scales,» Norrie told Tennis Channel, according to Sportskeeda. «I’d like to think he’s doing the same thing and with the same method of taking care of little details like that.»

In the second round in Cincinnati, Norrie beat Murray 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. «I’m still struggling a bit with the conditions and trying to find my rhythm. I managed with my attitude and stayed positive. I managed to find myself a set down, I don’t know how, and the last set was a battle, it had some chances and played a couple of good points,» Norrie said.

«That’s how you play tennis sometimes. It’s a big win for me, to have beaten Andy for the first time. It’s not the way I wanted to beat him with cramps from him, but it’s okay to go through.» After Cincinnati, Norrie will focus on the US Open.

At Wimbledon last year, Norrie reached her first Grand Slam semi-final. In the Wimbledon semifinal, Norrie fell to Djokovic in four sets. Norrie got off to a good start against Djokovic, winning the first set, but then lost the next three sets and the match.

It remains to be seen if Norrie can go far in Grand Slam at the US Open.

Nole is a tennis legend.

Speaking to Graham Bensinger in an interview, Novak Djokovic called his Rio loss to del Potro one of the «most heartbreaking moments» of his career.

“It was one of the most heartbreaking moments I had in my career. Yes really. Because I built with myself great expectations for the Olympic Games in Rio. I was number one in the world and won four Slams in a row. I was at the top of my career in terms of results, in terms of how I play, how I feel.

I felt that if there was ever a time for me to get the gold medal or fight for a gold medal, it was then. I felt that if there was ever a time to get the gold medal or fight for a gold medal, it was then,” Djokovic said.

“Because, I guess, I got injured, because I built a lot of pressure and expectation on myself, it was just unbearable. It was too much and at the time I didn’t know how to handle it properly. And I got injured and had to, you know, lose my first round match against Del Potro, who won the silver medal,» Djokovic said.
