Djokovic Motivated To Avenge Backstabbers

A cautiously optimistic Novak Djokovic told that he has received some positive signs that he will be allowed to compete at the 2023 Australian Open but it’s not official yet.

The 2022 Wimbledon champion also mentioned he was surprised by the actions, words and behaviors of some prominent figures of the tennis world.

“It was a very interesting year, peculiar. I always strive to draw positive things from whatever the experience is, that is part of my character and my approach to life. I know that everything that happened in Australia and afterwards – the way people have treated me, which did not feel nice and it is something I have never experienced before in my life – has helped me to learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about myself, about life and about the way I should move on in this world, especially in the tennis ecosystem.”

Though he used diplomatic words to describe being betrayed and defamed by the tennis establishment this year, it’s fairly evident Djokovic has gained extra incentive to deliver retribution and frontier justice on the courts next year.

“Many masks  have fallen, so to say – throughout this process, it was  interesting for me  to observe   the   way some   people   behaved   towards   me   this   year.   I   keep   going,   motivated   and inspired. I love this sport, I love giving it my all in every practice because every day is different, and there is always some sort of excitement, some sort of unknown, it is a challenge. The young guns are coming, they are hungry for success, so that is something that gives me extra motivation as well.”

“Some of the biggest tournaments in the world are held there (USA, Canada, Australia). I respect that everyone has a different way of thinking in relation to my situation and my circumstances. After all, I have never offended anyone or ever tried to be disrespectful in any way. I always tried to show that it is important for everyone to have the right and freedom of choice. For the choices I made, I knew there would be certain consequences like not going to America, and that is it. For Australia it was a different case, I had the exception, but in the end it did not work out. We know what happened, let’s not go back. This time I am waiting for the permission again. It is a good thing that they have now opened the borders for the unvaccinated foreigners traveling to Australia. I have that ban, I hope it will be lifted. As I said, it is not in my hands, I hope the people in the Australian Government will give a positive answer, that is all.”
