Đere has better work habits than any of us Đoković heaped praises on Đere and his performance on
several occasions.

“We practiced together many times. We talked a lot about life and tennis. And not only with him, but with other Serbian players too. I’m always glad to see them succeed, and have a good result. Laci is a perfect example of a good guy. He is very quiet and probably has better work habits than any of us. He deserves everything that is happening to him, and much more. His tennis has been very good in the last couple of months. He played well against Tsitsipas in Monte Carlo too. I know that he’s disappointed with this loss but he can be proud of how he played. It’s not easy to play against a friend but when I do, I try to win.”
