New ATP World Tour No. 1 and Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic was a man in demand on Monday morning as he conducted a media tour on the competitors’ lawn at the All England Club.
After attending the Wimbledon Champions’ Dinner on Sunday evening, the elated Serb had eventually got to bed after midnight. But before flying home to Serbia on Monday afternoon, he returned to the scene of his third major triumph to share his thoughts with the world’s media.
The 24 year old spent 35 minutes filming television interviews with the BBC, Sky Italia, Sky News, ITN, CNN, ATP World Tour Uncovered, his racquet sponsor HEAD, and B92 Serbia, before heading downstairs to chat exclusively to the British national daily newspapers, and international publications such as L’Equipe, New York Times, Gazzetta Dello Sport and the Wall Street Journal.
“I still haven’t had enough time to realise the success that I had. I’m sure in the next couple of days I’ll start to think about how big this win is,” said Djokovic. “I’m about to celebrate with my people back in Serbia, we are all going there and will try to find out how big of a deal this is. For me it’s just incredible, I’m living the dream. I’m very proud that the people in my country are sharing this success.”
