Beyond being the No. 1 tennis player in the world, and probably also in the history of the game, Novak Djokovic has always been special in his own way, with one of the most important things for him being recognized for his greatness and never-ending investment to stay in the highest position possible even at the age of 36.5.
The Serbian is used to drawing attention and speaking directly, as he did in an interview with senior CBS journalist John Wertheim for the network's famous interview show, "60 Minutes," for which he promised to answer all questions.
Djokovic did not disappoint, repeatedly talking about his inability to be friends with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on or off the court, the achievements he aspires to and the few disappointments of last season, and only one question took him out of his composure and he did not hide it.
When Wertheim described his success and ability as a "gift from nature," Nola quickly interrupted and briefly silenced the experienced interviewer. "Excuse me, but I have to correct what you're saying," Djokovic was adamant, quickly explaining that there was a completely different reason for his achievement.
"No, it's not a gift from nature. All these things came after a lot of very hard work," the Serbian stressed before allowing Wertheim to proceed with the interview as planned.
