In an interview to Eurosport, Novak Djokovic commented on how his season has been going so far. The Serb replied:
“I struggled a bit after the Australian Open, I did not play tournaments for five or six weeks, I was rusty in Indian Wells and Miami and in the first week of the clay season in Monte Carlo.
I was struggling to find my best level.
But I got more comfortable, practicing on clay, Madrid went very well, I did not drop off a set, I won the tournament, I played a couple of really long matches in Rome, then Rafa was too strong in the final.
But the last month and a half were really good for me on clay and the aim was always to peak here in the Roland Garros.
It’s not strange, I found myself in those situations many times before and at this peace of my career, it’s definitely where I want to play my best tennis.
Bad bounces, a different court, the second guy in a row that I did not play before.
I played a great first set, I had a bit of drop in concentration but I played a really good couple of matches.” On possibly winning four Grand Slams in a row, Djokovic added:
“The fact that I have done it two years ago, gives me the belief I can really do it again.
I found my form at the right time, I am hitting the ball well, I just keep doing things in a way that had worked for me in the past and if I continue progressing, I have a fair chance to go far in the tournament. And then everything is in God’s hands.”
