Novak Đoković had incredible support at Dorćol. It looked like the stands were as full as they can possible be. The best tennis player in the world did not want to talk about the first set too much but did reveal what helped him up his level in the second and the third set.
“I’ll keep some things to myself: how I prepare and what goes through my head at those moments. I’m feeding off the energy of home supporters, which is phenomenal, one of the best atmospheres I’ve experienced in my career. I’ve always had excellent support here, it’s only natural, I’m from Serbia, but the atmosphere during the match with Khachanov was really great. The audience kept cheering me on and their energy kept me moving forward. This is the best feeling in the world. Being able to play tennis in Belgrade,” said Đoković.
