Novak Djokovic after his match against Daniil Medvedev at the Masters: “I can’t calculate”

“Can you explain to us what happened on the court on Friday and why you continued to give your all when qualification was assured and you seemed physically scarred?
It was just fatigue from a grueling battle. I was not sick, I had no physical problem. It was just general exhaustion from the rallies and the length of the game. At this point in my career, every game like this is a golden opportunity for me to score a win against one of the best players on the planet. He wanted to finish the season with a win, I didn’t want to lose to him. I don’t know how to calculate, I don’t like doing it and I’ve never done it. I am very proud to have found a way to win.

We saw your hand shaking at the end of the second set, is there a reason for that, a drop in sugar levels?
There were a lot of different things, but I won’t go into detail because I don’t think this is the place to do it. I don’t want to reveal exactly what I’m going through to my opponents. Everyone has that kind of day where they struggle physically. For me it was today (Friday).

Without going into details, is everything okay, are you afraid it will happen again?
I’m not as fresh as Thursday (smile). Physically, I’m not worried. Worry only robs you of the vital energy you need. If something happens tomorrow (Saturday for the half), for good or bad, it will happen and I will deal with it tomorrow. I will do everything I can to recover and rest. I have had many cases in the past where I managed to recover quickly, I hope that will be the case again. »
