[##[[email protected]]!!!]* Novak Djokovic vs. Roman Safiullin Live TENNIS Broadcast 1 October 2022.
Djokovic, who is chasing a historic Calendar Slam, has been given quite a tricky draw. The World No. 1 will open his campaign against a qualifier, but will likely face big-hitting German Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round.
World number one Novak Djokovic continues his quest for two unique records, i.e to be complete the calendar slam and break the three-way tie he is in right now for 20 titles with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
It has been a phenomenal year for the Serb, who won the Aussie Open (defeating Medvedev), French Open (defeating Tsitsipas) and Wimbledon (defeating Berrettini) and in turn set himself up for a shot at the Golden Grand Slam in an Olympic year.
"The Tokyo Olympics, I have kind of been waiting for them for eight years almost, because I didn't make it to the Rio one. I felt like everyone kept asking me about the Tokyo Olympics I guess every year from that point.
"So I feel very sad about how I did there, but also a little bit happy I didn't lose in the first round, as well, because I haven't played in a minute. Even the circumstances that it was held in, I was really glad to be able to experience all that. And lighting the torch and stuff like that, it was fun for me. I definitely think it will be like a really big memory for me.
"I feel like definitely [lighting the torch is] a moment that I'll be the proudest of myself. I think my ojiisan was probably yelling at his TV when it happened. It was definitely surreal. I had to do a rehearsal the night before, but it felt very top secret. I didn't know I was the first tennis player to carry the torch, but definitely that's something that I'll remember in my heart."
"I'm pretty open when it comes to press conferences. I feel like I have been that way my whole life. There are times where I would say there are people that I don't know that well that ask me really, really sensitive questions, and then especially after a loss [it] kind of amplifies a bit. So I would say even repetitive questions, like questions we have been asked before, but maybe you guys weren't there at the previous press conference, just like maybe read transcripts.
