Serbian tennis legend Novak Djokovic has expressed that he wants to pursue different roles in tennis once he retires. The superstar said that if he doesn’t pass on his knowledge to the next generations then his knowledge is of no use. Novak also said that he finds Daniil Medvedev his “biggest rival” and that Daniil’s game has no weaknesses.
I try to pass on to new generations everything that I've learned. Knowledge can be a curse if you don't use it. What am I supposed to do when I retire -- take it to my grave so that those who come after me are unable to benefit from my philosophy, work methods, and approach? For me, it's only logical that the next step should be to pass my knowledge on to others. I see myself in various roles in the future and I am glad that I can also develop as a coach.
Novak Djokovic on “passing the knowledge”
He is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world at the moment and if he stays healthy he will win many more grand slam tournaments. I'd have hardly any work to do if I was to coach him. He is probably my biggest rival at the moment and he is very close to becoming the world number one. He is the leader of a new generation and his game has no weaknesses.
