Djoker relishes win after ‘physical crisis’

Djoker relishes win after ‘physical crisis’
The Serb ironman showed why he remains the world number one with an energy-sapping 7-6 (7/5), 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-0 win over sixth seed Andy Murray on Sunday evening. He has now won all five of his Melbourne Park finals and said it was perhaps the most satisfying of his eight Grand Slam titles.

“I think it has deeper meaning, more intrinsic value now to my life because I’m a father and a husband. It’s the first Grand Slam title I won as a father and a husband and I just feel very, very proud of it,” he said. Djokovic added as his life was changing off court, he was learning to appreciate the big wins more than ever.  “I try to stay on the right path and committed to this sport in every possible way... and try to use this prime time of my career really where I’m playing and feeling the best at 27,” he said.

“This is why I play the sport, to win big titles and to put myself in a position to play also for the people around me. As my life progresses, there are circumstances, situations, events that define these beautiful moments. Getting married and becoming a father in the last six months was definitely something that gave me a new energy, something that I never felt before. And right now everything has been going in such a positive direction in my life. So I try to live these moments with all my heart,” added Djokovic.
