But, it's because we have a harder way to succeed in life as Serbs because of the past that we had and because of the history that we had. We have to dig deeper and we have to do much more in order to be seen and to be spotted.Novak Djokovic
Even though now I'm pretty popular in my country and tennis is the No. 1 sport, and I'm very flattered that the people recognise me and come up and give me compliments, I'm more a person who likes to have privacy and peace.Novak Djokovic
I don't think there has been enough communication between the players and the tournaments. In one sense it's just as much the players' fault. Players talk between each other and in the locker room about things that can be improved and then when the time comes to talk and really do something about it they stop.Novak Djokovic

It's interesting that I had such a close relationship with my grandfather. Because your parents always judge you: they say, 'You shouldn't do this, you shouldn't do that.' But with your grandparents you have a feeling that you can say anything or you can do anything, and they will support you. That's why you have this kind of connection.Novak Djokovic
My father had never watched tennis, never liked tennis too much. He said, 'OK, we buy a racket, we watch together,' because we didn't know anything. It was a process of learning together that made it more interesting.Novak Djokovic
My father never talked about the sacrifices that the family made for me.Novak Djokovic
My mother is a special story. She went through so much to bring us up, four men at home, especially when our country was going through really difficult times.Novak Djokovic
My nutritionist has done a great job in changing my diet after we established I am allergic to things like gluten - I can't eat pizza, pasta and bread. I have lost some weight, but my movement is sharper and I feel great.Novak Djokovic

Serbian history tells that the family is the most important thing and you have to stick with the family.Novak Djokovic
The history of our country is cruel. We have to face those issues or, should I say, we had to. Not anymore I hope, because we are going in the right direction, and we are ready to forgive, ready to move on.Novak Djokovic
The tradition in Serbia has always been team sports - football, basketball, handball, volleyball and water polo, individual sports are not supported.Novak Djokovic
Those born into poverty or on the margins of society require our extra support to realize their dreams.Novak Djokovic

Well, I do feel that I carry the responsibility of representing my country wherever I am, and this responsibility came with the success that I had in last couple of years, not just myself but the whole group of tennis players that comes from Serbia.
