Novak Djokovic frustrated

Novak Djokovic admits that his form is worrying him as he attempts to get his season back on track in Madrid.

The world number one started the season off by winning the Australian Open, but he has since suffered a dive in form that has included shock early exits at Indian Wells and the Miami Open.

And he is certainly not oblivious to that himself, but he believes experience can guide him through it – starting with the Madrid Open quarter-finals.

“It’s a huge challenge always to overcome any match in the big tournaments because everyone is motivated,” Djokovic said.

“I’m experienced at this level. I know what to do and the good thing about tennis is you always have an opportunity within a week or two weeks, three weeks, to rectify maybe certain things that you felt like were not working.

“It’s all a learning curve especially when you are losing in early rounds and matches that you are supposed to win against players you are supposed to win [against].

“Of course, it does feel disappointing especially because I was on such a roll for so long. But I have to move on.”

“[But] it’s not the first time in my career that I’m experiencing those ups and downs.

“I tried to keep it as stable as possible not to have too big of an extreme swing. But everyone plays their best when they are playing against the top players.”
