Top football player: “Novak Djokovic complemented me when…”
The number one-ranked tennis player in the world, Cameron Norrie, of Great Britain, said his Wimbledon 2021 campaign, which concluded with a defeat to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals, had taught him a lot. At Wimbledon, Norrie, 26, advanced to her maiden Grand Slam semifinal in front of his home audience.
Norrie started off the semi-final against Djokovic quite well, taking the first set 6-2. As he has done so many times before, Djokovic overcame a sluggish start and dominated Norrie the rest of the way to win 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
According to Tennis365, Norrie said of his experience at Wimbledon: “Wimbledon was a very pleasant experience, going to Wimbledon for the second week for the first time, reaching the semi-finals, and having a tight match with Djokovic.” Looking back, there are many valuable lessons to be learned.
The fact that I can now perform it in a Slam is the most crucial fact. Especially playing at the level I did, starting like this, in the most significant match of my career thus far against perhaps the best player in the world on grass.
Norrie was featured in the UK’s sports news for two weeks in a row. This has made Norrie one of the most well-liked British athletes this summer, and he is now nearly always recognized. It was enjoyable, Norrie acknowledges.
When you go downstairs for coffee, the waiter remembers you and says, “Oh don’t worry, today is fine.” “Dude, I can pay for it, that’s fine,” I respond. He tells us not to worry. My response was, “Man, that’s OK, I can pay it.” When I went to pick up my dry cleaning, they said, “Ah, a huge Wimbledon, you know this time don’t worry.”
A legend is Nole Djokovic.
If Novak Djokovic is a fantastic role model for young tennis players, his aura extends far beyond the confines of the game. In a recent interview with Tuttosport, Serbian football player and striker Dusan Vlahovic, who plays for the storied Juventus team in Turin, Italy, wanted to clarify when the reporter compared him to the person who has won 21 Grand Slam trophies.
“Since I still have a lot to learn, I don’t see myself as a reference; Djokovic, on the other hand, is a reference for all of us. It’s a pleasure to be his countryman; I hope he can continue to win awards and accomplish all of his objectives.
Although I don’t know him well, we have had a few conversations. He praised me when I got to Juventus. His training methods and mental tenacity serve as role models. It would be wonderful if he came to visit us for a few conversations.
