Novak Djokovic is not concerned about the way his season has started. He has the belief that he is capable enough to pull things back and make this season a fantastic one for him.
Djokovic who is the second ranked player in the world at the moment had been winning the Australian Open since the last three seasons and he was the hot favourite to do that once again this season, but, he couldn’t do so as he lost to Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarter finals.
According to the 26 years old Serbian player, it would have been wonderful to win the Australian Open for the 4th time successively, but, not winning there has not got him demoralized at all. He is up for the upcoming challenges.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Djokovic said, “There is no doubt about the fact that when you win a tournament early on in the season, it gives you a lot of confidence and that reflects in the way you play in the following events. So, I would have liked to have that momentum again, but, still, I am quite confident.”
“When the results don’t go your way, it’s important to put in hard yards and keep believing and that’s what I am trying to do. Hopefully, the coming weeks will be great for me.”
This is probably Djokovic’s worst start to the season in the recent times. But, one must also consider the fact that he has suffered his two defeats this year against two top quality players.
Also, neither of those defeats were the comprehensive ones. If the Serb had not lost points during key moments, he might have won both those matches. So, it can’t be said that he has been in poor form.
