Novak Djokovic explained

Novak Djokovic says himself, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal embrace life in the same manner.
Novak Djokovic has explained why himself, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are able to continue dominating late into their career. The trio are the leading contenders to win the Australian Open title over the next fortnight.
And Djokovic claims he has a similar approach to life to Federer and Nadal which helps them get the right balance.

“I think, first of all, Roger has talked about this as well, Rafa as well, that age is just a number,” Djokovic said.

“It’s not just a cliche, but it’s really something that I feel like the three of us have in common. It’s really the way we approach career and our everyday life.

“I think we found a way, a formula, to balance private-professional life so we are able to kind of excel in tennis and still be able to compete at the highest level after many years, still be motivated, still be mentally fresh and, of course, physically prepared and fit to compete in best-of-five sets with young players that are coming up.

“They’re obviously very hungry to reach the great heights and fight for the biggest trophies in sport.

“I mean, personally for me it seems like my career was going in sequences of several years.

“I think every sequence had different circumstances in life, in different situations, that have made me the person and the player I am today.
“I think I just had to adapt to this newly-occurring circumstances and evolve, kind of grow stronger, and also find purpose and motivation in each of these phases or sequences in my career, in my life as well.

“I mean, I’m a completely different person, have completely different life today than I had five years ago.

“I’m a father of two children. Obviously things are not the way they were five or 10 years ago. I know that.

“But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better or it’s worse, it’s just different.”

Djokovic has had to make several changes to his life as he approaches the latter stages of his career.
