Djokovic's 21-Match Win Streak At Davis Cup 'Showcases His Dedication' To Serbia

by Evita Mueller

Novak Djokovic always prioritized playing for Serbia even though it only yielded one Davis Cup trophy for the country so far.

Djokovic has always maintained that he prioritizes playing for Serbia any time he can. While his singles career will always probably be ahead for obvious reasons, the Serbian does back up his commitment to the country with numbers.

The win over Cameron Norrie at the 2023 David Cup Finals was his 21nd consecutive win for the country in the Davis Cup, which just shows how domiannt he's been. He's led the country to the trophy once in the past but failed to do that afterwards because the rest of the team often couldn’t support his efforts.

This year it finally seems like he's getting some backing from his teammates so he hopes to lead the country to the trophy. His commitment was praised by Team Captain Viktor Troicki after the win over Norrie.

Yeah, well, definitely I want to congratulate players for playing amazing matches, great performances, both by Novak and Miomir. Great battles. Both matches were very tough. Of course I want to thank Novak. As you say, was just mentioning, so many wins in the Davis Cup and playing so many ties, it shows how much it means to him and playing for country and being so good at it.

Troicki on Djokovic

For Djokovic, playing for the country was always a responsibility on top of just being an honour. He tries to honour it as best as he can.

Yell, as I said, you know, I think pretty much anybody who is part of the Davis Cup here really says the same thing. It's absolute honor and privilege to be representing the country, to wear the flag on your shirt when you're out on the court. It's more responsibility, as well.

And I think the fact that I had the unbeaten round since 2011 in a way showcases my dedication and my really approach to playing for my country.
