Novak Djokovic shares a very sad update for all his fans

The decision was in the air and seemed almost inevitable after what happened in Indian Wells: Novak Djokovic will not participate in the Miami Open, the second ATP Masters 1000 of the season. The Serbian press had anticipated everyone a few days ago and, in the last minutes, the Serbian’s confirmation arrived.

After the defeat suffered against Luca Nardi in Indian Wells, Nole decided to take some time to recover his best form and prepare for the clay court season without adding another tournament to his calendar.

Djokovic reiterated how important it is for him, at this stage of his career, to find a balance between private and professional life.

“Hi Miami! Unfortunately I will not be playing in the Miami Open this year. At this stage of my career, I am balancing my personal and professional schedule. I regret not being able to meet some of the best fans in the world. I can’t wait to compete to Miami in the future!” he wrote on X.

Precisely in an interview given to Jeffrey Katzenberg before making his debut at the BNP Paribas Open, Djokovic delved into his priorities.

“I have to plan my calendar much more intelligently than in the first years of my career. I have to give priority to the big events, obviously I’m referring to the four Grand Slam tournaments. The Olympics are also being played this year and representing my country is always a great honor and pleasure,” he analyzed.

In the same interview mentioned above and granted to Jeffrey Katzenberg, Djokovic described the emotions he felt after the success on the lawns of the All England Club.

“When I won Wimbledon in 2011 I realized my two childhood dreams. On the same day I won Wimbledon and became world number one for the first time.
Many people welcomed me in the square when I returned to Serbia, my whole family was present. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I’m grateful to have won many other tournaments and set many records in this sport, but when you accomplish something for the first time it’s different,”
 he explained.

“I have to plan my calendar much more intelligently than in the first years of my career. I have to give priority to the big events, obviously I’m referring to the four Grand Slam tournaments. The Olympics are also being played this year and representing my country is always a great honor and pleasure.

So I’m looking forward to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. I just want to stay healthy and see how far I can go. I hope I don’t have to say goodbye to tennis, more or less in 25 years! Because of my body, but it’s my head that pushes me to do it.

People don’t know that tennis is the sport with the longest season of all, from January to November, and when I play I play to win. This is why I have to balance my tennis career with my family life, I don’t want to miss my son’s first tooth and now it’s hard for me to spend a month in Australia, far away.

I was lucky to be surrounded by experts when I was younger. One of the first was Jelena Gencic, my tennis mother, who taught me that in life you must always have a goal: this brings you clarity, and clarity means discipline. I trusted her and she planted seeds that I’m still reaping today,” he told.
