“There is great respect for Federer and Nadal but we are not friends because we are rivals, and this makes it difficult to be close and share intimacies of our lives that could be used against us. We have shared the stage for so many years with great respect, so I hope that one day when the curtain closes we can sit down and talk and reflect, that would be great.”
These are the words of Nole Djokovic in the long interview granted to CBS for the famous program “60 minutes” which will be broadcast in the Italian night.
“For me it is completely normal to be thirsty for victories. To be honest, to be authentic and to express what I feel – added the Serbian -. I just try to be honest with myself and with others and to say what my goals are and goals. It’s that simple”, perhaps a dig at Nadal who said he doesn’t feel anything when he sees Djokovic win. “When will I retire? – continued Nole – When young people start kicking me in the ass it will mean that the time has come to reflect. But for now it’s not happening…”. Djokovic also touched on his position on vaccinations which caused so much discussion during the pandemic: “I’m not anti-vax or even pro-vax. I want people to be free to choose.”
