Novak Djokovic is thrilled to have won a third Wimbledon during one of his best six-month periods of his career. But the World No. 1 isn’t content, he wants more titles.
“It’s one of the things tennis has taught me and any other player, is to not spend too much time celebrating and reflecting on the success that you had,” Djokovic said. “It’s all the past. Obviously I was very proud of winning Wimbledon but now is the time to get back on track and hopefully I can do well.”
Djokovic spent his time since Wimbledon with his family and resting.
“My goals are to play the best tennis at the biggest events, the Grand Slams and the 1000s events,” he said. “I needed to take some time off resting and recalibrating is as important as the work that you do.”
Djokovic is in Canada this week where has a 26-5 career record, winning in Montreal twice (2007, 2011) and Toronto in 2012.
The 3-time Canadian Open winner will play Tuesday against the Thomas Bellucci/Pablo Cuevas winner. Earlier today he and countryman Janko Tipsarevic won their doubles opener over Andreas Seppi and Viktor Troicki 64, 63.
Djokovic is 48-3 on the year with six titles. If not for a tough loss in the French Open final, he would also be going for a Calendar Slam at the US Open.
“Hopefully I can ride that wave of confidence that I had (in the first six month) in the next half of the season.”
