During a recent interview with Serbian TV PRVA, Novak Djokovic admitted that he nearly quit tennis in 2010.
“At the beginning of 2010. Wanted to quit tennis!”, Djokovic reportedly said via google translation. “The ability to get hold of the first places in the world. Knew I had to beat Rafa and Roger that come in the first place, I won Wimbledon, that was my goal.”
Up until the start of 2010, Djokovic had reached two Grand Slam finals, winning the 2008 Australian and losing 2007 US Open, as rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal continued to dominate.
Then things turned around at the end of the year leading to his incredible 2011 run.
