Novak Djokovic: Defeats in the early stages teach a lot

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic commented on his victory over Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the third round of “Masters” in Madrid.

“The first game turned out to be excellent. From the very beginning I acted very clearly, played great at the reception. I practically did not make mistakes. In the second set everything changed. Opponent began to better serve the first ball, no longer make mistakes when exchanging punches from the back line. He repeatedly scored points with the help of forehand.

In general, any match at such a prestigious tournament is a test. All participants are very motivated. However, experience tells me how to play in a given situation. In addition, in our sport you always have the opportunity to correct something that did not work last week.

Failures in the early stages, when you are inferior to opponents, which you have to beat, learn a lot. Of course, I hate that for a long time I did not show my best game. However, we need to move on.

There have been many ups and downs in my career. Of course, I tried to ensure that the spread between the highest and lowest points was not so great. But it is not easy to do, because in meetings with top players all go out with the best tennis.

Now I feel quite comfortable. In the match with Jeremy, I did not feel the pressure. In the second game I was constantly in the role of lagging behind, but at the same time I was not too worried.

Every day I get to the best shape. I would like to reach the peak of the French Open. However, both here and in Rome, I want to speak as best I can, “the press service of the ATP quotes Djokovic.
