‘Novak Djokovic plays his best tennis when emotional, so he’s going to take a lot of stopping’
Lindsay Davenport says that Novak Djokovic plays his best tennis when he is ’emotional,’ and that will mean it will take a lot to stop his pursuit of history.
Djokovic is currently third in the race against Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for most career Grand Slam titles, but he is also looking the most likely to win it.
“When he is emotional and it means so much to him he plays his best tennis,” Davenport said on Tennis Channel.
“He was absolutely rock-solid in the ATP Cup got more confidence and momentum for the Australian Open and how he is really playing for history.
“He’s playing for the Grand Slams and everybody thinks that this is going to be a race that goes down to the wire between the three of them.
“Novak firmly believes he has something to prove, to try to end with the most Grand Slams and that’s what he is fired up for.
“It gives him a reason to play for the next few years and a big reason to care.”
Djokovic has already win the Australian Open this year to close to within three of Federer’s all-time record.
