HIGHLIGHTS

  • Djokovic won the Italian Open on Sunday
  • Djokovic was happy after he and his son won tournaments on the same day
  • Djokovic considers himself as one of the favourites to win the French Open

World No.1 Novak Djokovic, on Sunday, May 15, won the Italian Open after defeating Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-0, 7-6 (7-5) in the final at Centre Court. It also happened to be his maiden title victory in 2022 after quite a few blows earlier this year, including the deportation from Australia.

The 34-year-old Djokovic was on cloud 9 after garnering his latest win, but what made him happier was his son Stefan’s win in another tennis tournament. The veteran said that he wanted his son to enjoy the game and not get bogged down under pressure.

“The journey started successfully. My son won a tournament today. A sunshine double. I wanted him to enjoy it on the court… He was on cloud nine with the family, my parents, my wife’s parents, everybody supporting him. It’s nice,” Djokovic was quoted as saying.

“He’s only seven… He shouldn’t feel any pressure or expectations yet, though he’s going to because it’s part of his family. He’s going to attract a lot of attention if he’s playing tennis, particularly in our country,” he stated.

HIGHEST AMBITIONS

Djokovic is next set to take part in the French Open at Roland Garros and he considers himself as one of the favourites to win the championship.

“I’d rate myself as one of the favourites. I don’t spend much time thinking who’s going to win it or who might have the best chance. I always think about myself. I go there with the highest ambitions. I like my chances. The way I’ve been feeling on and off the court in the last few weeks, I can go far,” Djokovic added.

Djokovic won the clay court tournament back in 2021, but it’s Spain’s Rafael Nadal, who has won the title as many as 13 titles.
