In an interview earlier this week with Italian sports paper Gazzetta dello Sport, Novak Djokovic talked for the first time about the announcement that he and fiancee Jelena Ristic are expecting their first child and how the baby will fit in with his playing schedule.
“I’ll try to return 1 because tennis is my passion, my love and my work, and it’s what I do best,” Djokovic said via Google translation. “I’ll try the strength to win all the tournaments. But with the arrival of baby tennis is no longer the No. 1 priority.”
Djokovic also sounds more than happy to take part in “baby duty (dooty?)”.
“I have several friends who have done it, as Ljubicic. Cant wait to experience these situations,” he said via translation when asked about changing diapers. “Yeah, even stay awake at night … I see it in a positive: you get tired a bit, but gives you new energy. Ljubo wanted to stop with the court and has found new motivation.”
Djokovic, who has been recovering from a right wrist injury, is the second seed at Madrid.
