'Yet To Find The Highest Level': Djokovic Gives Honest Verdict On His Season Ahead Of Rome

by Zachary Wimer

Novak Djokovic talked about his tennis ahead of the 2024 Italian Open, admitting that he is yet to find his best tennis, hoping to find it before Roland Garros.

Djokovic has only managed to play in three tennis events so far this year, and he didn't really impress at any of them. His best outing was the first tournament he played—the Australian Open.

He looked comfortable in Melbourne, as it's a place where he won the season's first major ten times until he ran into Jannik Sinner, who outplayed him easily.

The Indian Wells Open was a terrible experience, and while the Monte-Carlo Masters was better, it wasn't that spectacular either. He mentioned this in the talk with Sky Sports, admitting that he's yet to find his best tennis.

"Yeah I played very few tournaments, three tournamnets this year. Yet to find the highest level of tennis and I was saying that the block of Roland Garros, Wimbledon, Olympics and the US Open is the most important one for me."

As Djokovic also mentioned, he's not really concered with the lack of results because the events so far haven't been his top priority. Obviously, losing out on the Australian Open wasn't in the plan, but it was a reality check for Djokovic, who still proved that he was among the best late last year.

To win this year, he would have to find something better because the likes of Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are further improving. The summer stretch, which he mentioned, is his priority, and that's what he's preparing for now, targeting both majors and the Olympics.

"That's my priority. Hopefully, I can find that level of tennis already this week, but you know Roland Garros is definitely where I wanna arrive and be ready to fight for a title."
