Djokovic Admits AO Trauma Lingered For Months

By Scoop Malinowski

Novak Djokovic got the walkover win to the quarterfinals today from Andy Murray and took time to do an interview with Prakash Amritraj on Tennis Channel at Madrid Mutua Open.

Djokovic revealed the traumatic experience of detention, unlawful interrogation, two court trials and then finally expulsion out of Melbourne at his favorite Grand Slam had a lingering and haunting effect on him which he only has managed to overcome just recently.

“What happened there I did feel for months to come, the emotional and mental traces of what happened there were still with me,” Djokovic told Amritraj during a live studio set interview.

“In the last few weeks I got out of that and transformed that as fuel for positive energy.”

The ATP world no. 1 player also said he leared that the establishment imposed hiatus before playing Dubai and Monte Carlo and Belgrade showed that he needed to do more “stamina workouts, build fitness, trust the process, patience is the key.”

Djokovic’s Australian ordeal, caused by his adamant insistence to maintain freedom of choice about what to put in his body and his personal right to resist a vaccine which Phizer documents are now revealing does not work and has caused numerous health issues and side effects, was one of the most adverse and draining episodes of his professional career which began in 2004.

“This was something completely unexpected. It did take a toll, more emotionally, mentally than physical,” said the winner of 20 Grand Slam singles titles and three time winner of Madrid.

Murray claims he has a stomach issue but you have to wonder if he was pleased with winning two matches in Madrid vs Thiem and Shapovalov, and he didn’t want to risk a blowout loss to Novak which would have erased the value and aura restoration of those two wins.

    “Murray claims he has a stomach issue but you have to wonder if he was pleased with winning two matches in Madrid vs Thiem and Shapovalov, and he didn’t want to risk a blowout loss to Novak which would have erased the value and aura restoration of those two wins.”

    Very Possible. He would be happy to remember these two good wins, instead of a bad loss to Djoko.

    Yes Gaurang, Murray’s tennis ego is fragile right now, he can’t afford a blowout loss, now he can roll into Roland Garros with some confidence and a winning aura again.

    Good call guys… i agree very possible about Murray. Plus the wear & tear on the body for what is likely to be 90% chance of a loss.

    Cory and all, notice how Djokovic has a bond and warmth already with Carlos, while Federer and Rafa both have no bond or warmth with Carlos.It’s another clue that Djokovic is superior to Rafa and Fed as a sportsman, Djokovic loves the kid and is actually happy for his success at his own expense. Fed and Rafa are not nearly as generous or kind to the kid.
