‘My season has been amazing, but I look for more than that,’ says Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has declared himself happy with his season’s work, although he admits he may never be fully satisfied. 

The Serbian has won four tournaments this year, including a Grand Slam, despite the season being shut down for months at the height of the coronavirus crisis.

There have also been high profile disappointments along the way, such as his defaulting at the US Open and his Roland Garros final humbling at the hands of Rafael Nadal, but Djokovic says he will look back on the season fondly as a whole.

“With New York, I got out of the tournament with something not related to hitting a forehand or backhand into the net,” Djokovic told reporters.

“And the French Open final? I couldn’t say I regret something and think I was close, because I wasn’t. I was just outplayed and so it’s not difficult to move on.

“When I draw a line under the season as year-end number one and winning four tournaments and having been unbeaten for a while, of course, whatever I do here, that’s amazing.

“But I do still look for more than that. Having had plenty of success in the past is a huge incentive, but also it can be a burden, as you always expect nothing less from yourself.”
