Sampras impressed with Djokovic
In season 4, episode 19 of the ATP World Tour Uncovered presented by Rio, 14-time Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras reveals to Justin Gimelstob the advice he gave Novak last July when the Serbian became world no.1.
Former ATP world no.1 speaks about Novak’s mental strength and admires him for being an “incredible competitor”.
“Novak’s always had a big game, big serve… I feel like mentally he was a bit fragile, and now he’s a rock.”
“When you’re 24, these next four, five years, until 28, 29, this is your prime. He’s too good, he’s a good mover, mentally he’s figured it out, he’s got the whole package”.
