“How is Novak Djokovic perceived in Serbia?
He has a very good image and a very high popularity. He embodies the image of the athlete. In all respects what he has already achieved, especially in a sport like tennis, is exceptional. You know, individual sport is very different from team sport. When I was a goalkeeper, I was a lonely man, who was allowed to do what other players couldn’t, like touching the ball with his hand. But I was playing as a team. Ten team members were there to help me. Djokovic, he is alone with his racket, on a field. In addition, he belongs to a generation in which he has to deal with the rivalry of other great champions, such as Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal.
