Novak Djokovic speaks to the media after Serbia reaches the semifinal of Davis Cup.
(On French Davis Cup team)
Novak Djokovic: The French team have a lot of success in Davis Cup. Their players grow up in an environment where this competition is considered as one of the most important things. They have great support of French Tennis Federation and hence always have a strong team. It will certainly be a big challenge for us to win against the French, at their home, in front of their crowd. They are motivated because for a long time they have not won the title and I believe that they still remember the Belgrade defeat. I’m sure they will be motivated.
(On being asked if he will play in the semi-finals of Davis Cup if he win the US Open in September)
Novak Djokovic: From your mouth to God’s ears, I’ll do my best to be available for the semi-finals of the Davis Cup. We appreciate playing for our country, we wish that we get the strongest team and to fight with them.
(On his relationship with fellow Davis Cup teammates).
Novak Djokovic: The friendly relationship the whole team have cultivated off the court, including Janko and Iljia, who are part of this generation these last ten years, is the key to our good results and our harmony as a team. It’s something that always gives us motivation and confidence to be the best we can.
(On the upcoming clay court season)
Novak Djokovic: I’m ready and I look forward to clay court season. I felt good the last seven days on and off the court. Playing Davis Cup always contributes positively for your individual career.
