Novak Djokovic admits he has “a team of spies” who study his potential opposition at Grand Slams after he studies the draw.
The world number one has won four of the last five Grand Slams, including the last two Wimbledon titles.
Dominic Thiem is the only man to prove himself capable of beating Djokovic at a Grand Slam during that time, with the Austrian getting the better of him at this year’s French Open.
Now, though, Djokovic has revealed one of the secrets of his success, but he insists it is nothing out of the ordinary.
“I think most of the players study the draw to be honest,” Djokovic told reporters in New York.
“You look at your section and who is in there and you scout – you see how they’re playing.

“You have your team of spies so to say viewing all the courts and potential opponents.
“You do look at the draw further than the first round but of course most of the attention goes to only the next match and how to overcome it.”
