Like many players, Djokovic generally celebrates winning trophies and matches on the ATP Tour. There is always something, whether it's jumping out of joy or falling to the ground, but this time, we saw nothing. Djokovic was calm and collected even though emotions came a bit later.
Speaking after the win over Daniil Medvedev, Djokovic explained what went through his mind when the Russian hit a forehand into the net. The prevalent emotion was relief, and he also wanted to show respect to his opponent.
Relief mostly. That's why I didn't -- yeah, I don't know. I didn't celebrate maybe as I did in Roland Garros or didn't fall to the floor or jump out of joy. I just, I was so relieved when I saw his forehand in the net. just, I was so relieved when I saw his forehand in the net. Out of respect, I wanted to go quicker to the net to shake hands and exchange words.
While he remained stoic at the moment, Djokovic was overwhelmed with emotion when he went over to his daughter, who was sitting in the front row. He wasn't aware that she'd be there, hence why he wanted to go over there quickly.
And then the next thing I wanted is to hug my daughter, because she was there sitting in the front row. I didn't know that she's gonna be seated there. We had way too many people for too little seats in the player box. Yeah, my wife was taking care of that with my team. I didn't know who was going to sit where.
There is plenty to be happy about when it comes to Djokovic. Winning another Grand Slam, back to number one, but the job's not done yet. He paid tribute to Kobe Bryant after his win, and you know what he said. Job's not finished as there is more to be won.
