Trophies for Djokovic - Commitment and Hard Work Pays Off February 22 2017, 0 Comments
How often does a starry-eyed child sit at the sidelines of a champion playing a great game of tennis and dream of being a champion one day? It has been said before that if you don’t have a dream, how can you make a dream come true? So, I suppose dreaming about trohpy’s, medals and badges of honour are a good start.
In the tennis world, currently we have the Big Four – Djokovic, Murray, Nadal and Federer. No one has won more men’s singles grand slam tournaments than Federer’s seventeen and amongst is awards you will find four Indian Wells trophies.
Nadal claimed the French open nine times, a record so far unbeaten. Djokovic captured the Australian Open for the fifth time in February, matching Federer’s Open Era haul. And Murray? No more need be said. He's a champion and his mantelpiece is cluttered with all sorts of medals and trophies.
Each of these men were little dreamers once and they dreamed big. But what were the realities that they faced in order to reach such heights and raise so many trophies?
I suppose one could say that Djokovic did not just dream. "Talent, hard work, commitment to the sport and having Federer, Nadal and Murray around," was his answer when asked by a CNN reported recently. Earning trophies all starts with the individual. “You have to be able to put in the hours of practice and make many sacrifices,” said Djokovic.
Clearly, the promise competing in the final, of having a record marked against your name and magnificent trophy or golden medal is part of the incentive. Without trohphies and awards, perhaps tennis would have remained a family game for the back garden.
What is interesting is that Djokovic attributes his success partly to having excellent competition along the way. All said and done, he emphasized that hard work is what did it in the end.
Any worthwhile trophy will attract talent. The winner will raise his award and think back on months of thankless training, interrupted social life and dogged commitment to the sport, all for the sake of a win. And in the case of Novak Djokovic, what a winner!
