Novak Djokovic Won His Fourth Wimbledon Title, Gave Credits To Family For Comeback

Novak Djokovic is one of the most famous players in the world. He is known for his speed and precision while playing the game. He started playing as a child and with hard work became a champion. Recently, he won the fourth Wimbledon title and his 13th grand slam overall.

In an interview, he said that it was never easy after he suffered elbow injury but his son became his strengths. "The last couple of years haven't been easy," he admitted. "I had elbow surgery and was absent from the tour for six months. But there was no better place to make my comeback. This is a sacred place for tennis. I always dreamed of holding this trophy when I was a young boy. I even used to make a lot of improvised Wimbledon trophies from different materials."

This was Djokovic's fourth Wimbledon title and his 13th grand slam overall – putting him fourth in the pantheon behind Pete Sampras on 14, Rafael Nadal on 17 and Roger Federer on 20.

"There were several moments where I was frustrated and questioning whether I could get back on [the] desired level or not," he said. "There were turbulences – as well as moments of doubt, disappointment, frustration and anger. But it’s usually in a struggle that you get to know yourself. And get to have an opportunity to rise like a phoenix and evolve and get better."

From 2011 to the middle of 2016 Djokovic had consistently been the world's best player. Then came the desert years leaving him fretting over whether he would ever be tennis's iron man again. But he made a good comeback. Afterwards, Djokovic credited a combination of surgery, returning to his old coach, Marian Vajda, and visualising his three-year-old son Stefan seeing him win a grand slam as making the difference.

"It feels amazing because for the first time in my life I have someone screaming 'daddy, daddy' and it's a little boy right there," he added. "I didn't talk about it, but it was one of – if not the biggest – motivation I've had for this Wimbledon this year.

"I was visualising, imagining this moment of him coming to the stands, cherishing this moment with my wife and me and everyone. It’s hard to describe. It is a moment that I will carry inside of my heart forever."

We wish Novak Djokovic for his heroic comeback and for winning the match.
