“Pete Sampras is one of the biggest legends ever to play the game''.
Djokovic said. “He was my childhood idol. He was someone I was looking up to. The first actual thing I saw related to tennis on the TV was his first or second Wimbledon championship. That inspired me to start playing tennis. There is a lot of significance of me being now shoulder to shoulder in terms of Grand Slam wins with him.”

Not so long ago, Novak Djokovic mentioned to the media ''a hike up mountain transformed his season'' After a shock defeat by world number 72 Marco Cecchinato in the French Open quarter-finals in June, Djokovic went trekking on a peak.
"We sat down and we just looked at the world from that perspective," he said. "I breathed in the new inspiration, new motivation. I thought of tennis, thought of the emotion that tennis provokes in me. "It was all positives. I just felt like I had a new breath for this sport." The rest is history.
Djokovic won in Cincinnati in August to become the first player to win all nine Masters 1000 tournaments on the ATP Tour. "If you told me in February this year when I got the surgery that I'll win Wimbledon, US Open, and Cincinnati, it would be hard to believe," Djokovic said. “But at the same time there was always part of me that imagined and believed and hoped that I can get back on the desired level of tennis very soon.”

On the other hand, the Argentinian tennis player stated, “I’m very sad for being a loser today,” del Potro said. “But Novak deserved to take the trophy. He played a great match, a very smart game.
I had my opportunities during the second and third set. But I was playing almost to the limit all the time, looking for winners with my forehand, backhands. And I couldn’t make it because Novak was there every time.”
Djokovic has won five straight matches against del Potro, the last four of those victories coming in straight sets. He is 15-4 against him over all.
The US Open Victory will also see him rise to number three in the world behind Nadal and Federer
