I don't like someone thinking I misused something or used something in my favour to get a positive PCR test and eventually get into Australia. I was never against vaccination, but I've always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body.

From 2006, he was coached by former Slovak tennis player Marian Vajda, who handed over to Boris Becker, who became the player's head coach. That same year, Novak received his first two ATP titles by winning the Dutch Open and Moselle Open. As a result, he broke into ATP's top 20 rankings list for the first time in his career.

Winning the Australian Open was what made Novak Đjoković's fame skyrocket. In the tournament, he won the semi-finals against the defending champion Roger Federer. Additionally, he won his first Tennis Masters Cup title that same year. As if that was not enough, the player was at his best in 2011 as he won three of the four Grand Slam titles, US Open, Wimbledon, and Australian Open.
