The ultimate souvenir
Heading back to his chair a champion once again, Djokovic made sure he thanked his chief supporter.
The world No.1 gave his racquet to one elated young boy, who had a serious impact on the 34-year-old’s morale.
“I don't know the boy. He was in my ear the entire match basically, especially when I was two-sets-to love down. He was encouraging me. He was actually giving me tactics, as well,” chuckled Djokovic during his press conference.
“He was like, ‘Hold your serve, get an easy first ball, then dictate, go to his backhand’. He was coaching me literally. I found that very cute, very nice. So, I felt like to give the racquet to the best person was him after the match. That was kind of my gratitude for him sticking with me and supporting me.”
