Novak Djokovic is now on his patch to ultimate tennis greatness and if you really want to know what that means you need to focus on his many setbacks rather than his success. Indeed he has played well in 2011 and accomplished a lot rising to the no.1 spot in one year is not easy and taking two Grand Slam titles is certainly not for the faint hearted which includes a win over Rafeal Nada in the final on Sunday to win the $7.5 million prize, however Djokovic relishes how he put aside he setbacks to win.

He has been unbeaten in a good 43 matches which dates back to the Davis Cup final which took place in December until that run ended against Roger Federer the 16 time Grand Slam champ in four sets just in last month’s French open semifinals. Djokovic who got a hot welcome in his home town of Serbia later on Monday from thousands of fans who lined up to chant his name outside the national assembly building in Belgrade were probably devastated after his streak ended. Many people were predicting that he would go into a tailspin but after a short break he got back to Wimbledon and started a brand new winning streak. Basketball lines

He said at the All England Club during a short 10 minute interview with reporters “I’m proud of many things, to be honest, in this moment, but something that comes up to my mind is after having an incredible run, an incredible year up to Roland Garros, and then losing that really epic semifinal against Federer — a great match — I managed to recover and to come back in a great style and to win Wimbledon for the first time in my life,” “I think that’s something that I maybe wasn’t managing to do in the past,” “and right now, I am able to mentally switch off and just recover quickly and look to the next challenge.” Betting lines

Djkovic said on Monday “But now I just didn’t allow myself to get to that position anymore, because it’s just not worth it. It’s sport. You win; you lose,” “And I have played good (against Federer). I didn’t have anything to regret, because the (other) player was better that day. So I just needed to sleep, get some rest and come here and perform my best. And I have done that.”
