Following a tough 3-set win over the tricky Alexandr Dolgopolov in Miami yesterday, 27-year-old Novak Djokovic was asked about his quarterfinal match against David Ferer, a battle of “two veterans” the reported stated.
“Did you say ‘two veterans’?” Djokovic smiled. “Thank you. That’s the first, I haven’t heard that. Thank you.
“This is a milestone,” Djokovic said. “This is a big thing for me to hear. I need to gather my thoughts here from what I heard just now,” he said. “Reality just hit me. Thank you for that.
“It’s been a long time I have been playing tennis but I have never heard that I’m a ‘veteran’.”
The 4-time Miami champion will face Ferrer tomorrow in the quarterfinals. Thursday is also Ferrer’s 33rd birthday. He’s a veteran.
