Novak Djokovic celebrated his US Open victory on Monday with an early-morning wakeup to make the rounds at some of the United States’ premier morning shows.
Djokovic joined the TODAY Show, where he spoke about the gruelling second set he won against Daniil Medvedev in the final and more.
“There were doubts, there are always doubts,” Djokovic said. “But it’s important to keep things quite simple and have good clarity and be in the present moment and focus on the next point and what needs to be done.”

Djokovic did just that to emerge victorious after three sets with his fourth US Open trophy and 24th major crown.
“It’s a good tired this morning,” Djokovic said. “I guess it will probably settle in a few days. But it has been an incredible experience last night.”
The Serbian also visited CBS Mornings, where former NFL player Nate Burleson asked Djokovic about his hunger to strive for more even though he has already accomplished so much.
“I think setting goals and objectives is extremely important for anything, really,” Djokovic said. “That’s one of the reasons why I think athletes resonate with people, because we are able to go through the lowest of the lows to highest of highs in a very short timespan in a game, in a tennis match or a football game or a basketball game.
“I think this incredibly wide spectrum of emotions that you go through and facing adversities and overcoming the challenges and obstacles is something that people relate to.”
