Age is no limit – Djokovic
Novak Djokovic said after this huge win that “We are part of an individual sport so you have to trust yourself and put yourself in the best physical, mental and emotional condition before going on the court. I guess 36 is the new 26, it feels good.”
Djokovic one step away from 24th Grand Slam
Serbia’s 36-year-old Djokovic is also trying to get the 24th Grand Slam of his career. He has already made a mark among the men in that category by finishing 23rd at the French Open last month, ahead of Rafael Nadal. Federer is next on the list with 20 trophies. Djokovic will have to beat Carlos Alcarez in the final to achieve this feat.
