Novak Djokovic had a work a little hard today against Steve Darcis than he did in a quick first round win over Hyen-Sun Lu. Today, the Serb was pushed by the Belgian in a tough-then-expected 75, 63, 64 victory to advance to the third round of the French Open and win his 23rd straight match in Grand Slam.
Obviously, the talk with Djokovic has been his quest for the career Grand Slam, but the Serb also revealed that he’s become a vegetarian…Or just someone who doesn’t eat meat.
“Yes, I am,” Djokovic said when asked if he was a vegetarian. He then clarified. “It’s been almost a year. Almost a year. How do you call that? A pescatarian, vegan with eating a little bit of fish here and there.”
Djokovic’s diet has been a key part to his success of late. He cut out gluten before the start of the 2011 season and he even published a book about what he eats. And now he’s eliminated meat in the last year and his results continue to improve.
And the Serb now has 50 career Grand Slam wins at all four Grand Slam, an accomplishment only equaled by Roger Federer and Serena Williams.
Five match wins from history, Djokovic takes on Brit Aljaz Bedene on Saturday.
