Djokovic often remains animated on the Tennis court whenever he plays against his opponents. He is never shy to show his emotions as he has been spotted crying multiple times, especially after winning any grand slam. This shows how important is every victory for him and how deeply he values his game as he has worked hard to achieve whatever he has now.
This is a great honour for me: Novak Djokovic
While addressing the home crowd Djokovic thanked everyone for giving him the opportunity to join them in the celebration. He said that this is a childhood dream for him and the feeling is priceless which is never going to happen again in future.
“There are rare moments when I am speechless, and this is one of them. This is a childhood dream come true for me. Like many of my generation, I was there to relish the previous successes of various sports teams, including water polo and basketball.”
This is a great honour for me; this is priceless, and this feeling will never happen again. I stand here with great athletes and, above all, good people with whom I have a good connection. I told them a little while ago that I also felt their harmony and that moment of humanity,” Djokovic was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
