Novak Djokovic talks to CNN about winning Laureus Sportsman of the Year prize, chances at Roland Garros

After winning the Laureus Sportsman of the Year award for the second time, world number one Novak Djokovic spoke to CNN’s Alex Thomas about taking the prestigious prize and his prospects at Roland Garros.

“This is certainly a crown for all the achievements I had in phenomenal 2014 season, that’s been highlighted with a Wimbledon trophy and a year end at number one of the world. And most importantly, my wedding and six months ago I had the honour to become a father…so all in all, it’s been the best year in my life so far,” said the 8-time grand slam champion.

When asked about his chances at Roland Garros and whether Rafael Nadal is beatable, Djokovic said: “Nobody’s unbeatable, I can tell you that. But he’s definitely an ultimate challenge on the clay courts.  He’s the king of clay. He has an incredible record at Roland Garros; he’s only lost one match in his entire career there, so - but he’s not the only player that I’m thinking about winning against on this surface. There’s Federer, of course, Wawrinka. I think it’s really a golden year of men’s tennis at this moment and I’m just trying to stay kind of self-disciplined and committed to this sport.”

“If you search FIFA on the internet you see the first word that comes out: scandal, not positive words. It’s that we have to change first and try to improve the image of FIFA. Football deserves much better than this.” FULL POST
