Aside from the Novak Djokovic vs. Ellen DeGeneres one-sided match-up, the 28-year-old Serbian also talked with Ellen about his tennis career success and his on-court rivals plus his family.
“Yes, absolutely at the peak of my abilities at the moment… I managed to put many things together in private and professional life so I found that harmony and balance that allows me to use my full potential on the tennis court. I’m just trying to cherish every moment spent on court.”” Djokovic shared in the interview.
Asked about his biggest rival, Djokovic answered what many tennis fans know already as he said he considers the trio of Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal as his on-court nemesis throughout his tennis career.
