Novak Djokovic: 'When I looked at myself in the mirror...'

“When I looked at myself in the mirror…”

Nick Kyrgios is one of the most distinctive athletes on the circuit, renowned for his controversies as well as his immense talent. It’s a particularly important hour for Nick in this quarter-final match against Chile’s Cristian Garin: according to a report in the Canberra Times, the talented Aussie was summoned to answer allegations of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend, Chiara Passari, on August 2.

Of course, this is not good news for the Australian, who faces up to two years in prison if convicted. The tennis player’s lawyer, Jens Monfeet, told the newspaper: “Nick is accused of domestic violence.

The nature of these allegations is very serious and Mr. Kyrgios takes them very seriously. As the allegations have brought Nick to court, he does not wish to make any statements at this stage. The lawyers also wanted to confirm the matter by saying: Until his appearance in court in Canberra, Nick has not been charged with any crime.

Before the challenge with Garin, Nick quickly responded to reporters by returning to the story: “I feel like he’s in the Last Dance episode.” The Australian tennis player thus referred to the famous series about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, the historic NBA team.

Chiara Passari has spoken about this matter several times and commented on it in the past: “I can’t forget when Nick left me alone on the street at four in the morning in New York, took my cell phone and wallet and went inside. meanwhile, he left with one of his ex-girlfriends.

20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic is having a great 2022 Wimbledon Championship so far.

Djokovic on the influence of mental strength

Novak Djokovic gave more context to how his comeback against Sinner went, mentioning his good friend Kobe Bryant and his famous ‘mamba mentality’

“There’s not a lot of time at that point…I’ve always had a lot of love and respect for Kobe Bryant, him and his famous mamba mentality. He often talked about these things – the one thing that all sports have in common is that moment where you have to convince yourself that you can and must be better; stay positive and dig yourself out of the hole,” said Novak Djokovic.

Speaking about the impact of mental strength in an individual sport like tennis, Djokovic cited the quote “fake it till you make it” and added that his words to himself during his pep talk felt unnatural. “That’s probably even more important in individual sports.

In English they say “fake it till you make it”. When I looked at myself in the mirror when I said those things, it felt unnatural, but I knew that the words had a power, a vibration, and that it could pay off,” he added.
