Novak Djokovic: Everybody Has Personal Problems, So It’s Normal
by Tom Gainey | August 9th, 2012, 9:11 am

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic enjoyed an easy second round match yesterday cruising to a 62, 63 win over Bernard Tomic yesterday at the Roger Cup Toronto. Earlier in the week reports surfaced from old coach Jelena Gencic that Djokovic has been suffering from personal issues which Novak addressed after the match.

“I prefer not speaking about my personal problems,” Djokovic said Wednesday. “Everybody has one, so it’s normal. You’re going through ups and downs and through difficult stages in your life and something that is a challenge in life, and you need to overcome it and try to become even stronger after that.”

Djokovic arrived into Toronto from the London 2012 Olympics where he lost in the bronze medal match to Juan Martin Del Potro on Sunday. The Serb admitted the speedy transition from grass to hardcourts is challenging but he’s glad to be back on his favorite surface.

‘We’re not even two days here, couple of practices, and it’s totally different conditions, time zone, ball bounce, everything,” Djokovic said. “But I love playing on hard court. It’s my favorite surface. Obviously when I needed to play well and be patient, I’ve done that really well today. Serve was working really good, so that’s a positive.”

Djokovic plays later today against American Sam Querrey.
