Novak Djokovic: 'It was just unbearable'

Novak Djokovic: “It was just unbearable”

Cameron Norrie reveals he’s seen Novak Djokovic “bring his own food in little things from Tupperware” and that’s the level of commitment he’s keen to make. A 21-time Grand Slam champion, Djokovic 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 be one of the greatest players in tennis history. “I’ve seen him bring his own food to events in little Tupperware containers.

It’s even more meticulous than weighing the scales,” Norrie said on Tennis Channel, according to Sportskeeda. “I’d like to think that he does the same thing and takes care of such small details with the same method.”

In the second round in Cincinnati, Norrie defeated Murray 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. “I’m still struggling a bit with the conditions and trying to find the rhythm. I got on with my attitude and stayed positive. I managed to lose a set, I don’t know how, and the last set was a struggle, he had some chances and I played some good points,” Norrie said.

“That’s how tennis is played sometimes. It’s a big win for me to beat Andy for the first time. It’s not like I wanted to beat him with cramps, but it’s okay to come through.” After Cincinnati, Norrie will focus on the US Open.

Last year at Wimbledon, Norrie reached his first Grand Slam semi-final. Norrie Djokovic lost in four sets in the Wimbledon semifinals. Norrie got off to a good start against Djokovic, winning the first set but then losing the next three sets and the match.

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

Nole is a tennis legend

In an interview with Graham Bensinger, Novak Djokovic described his Rio defeat to del Potro as one of the “most heartbreaking moments” of his career.

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

I felt like if there was ever a time for me to win the gold medal or fight for a gold medal, it was now. I felt like if there was ever a time for me to win the gold medal or fight for a gold medal, it was now,” Djokovic said.

“I guess because I hurt myself, because I put such enormous pressure and expectations on myself, it was just unbearable. It was too much and I just didn’t know how to deal with it at the time. And I got injured and I had to, you know, I lost my first-round match to del Potro, who later won the silver medal,” Djokovic said.
