Apart from preparing himself for the US Open with vigorous workouts, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic also made the media rounds over the week leading up to the season’s final Grand Slam event, including an impressive appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.
The Serbian star discusses a variety of topics with Letterman, including how he developed his style of tennis, how he got into the sport as a youngster, and what he expects of himself heading into the US Open. While the discussion remained focused on tennis, it was a mild casual perspective on the sport, which may be refreshing to some who are adjusted to detailed knowledge on the sport.
Watch the clips below:
The US Open is scheduled to take place Monday, Aug. 25. Djokovic is the top seed at this year’s tournament. He finished runner up at the event over the past two years, the first time to Andy Murray, and last year to the now-injured Rafael Nadal.
