Novak Djokovic plays this Wednesday (14:30, #Come on) in the Wimbledon quarterfinals against the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics (29 years old and 48th in the ranking). The Serb has found no rival so far in the tournament and it seems that his success or failure is entirely up to him. He goes through one of the best moments of his career and threatens to become the best in history.
After winning the Chilean Garín in the round of 16, he spoke about one of the keys to his excellent performance: holism, a position of methods and scientific knowledge that considers things as a whole and by the synergy of its parts, not by the individuality of each. “I try to take into account everything I do, what I consume, what I think, how I sleep, whatever is really part of my daily life, when it comes to performance, recovery and preparation”he explained. “Every aspect of your life, also the emotional one, your relationships, your daily routines, your good and bad habits, be it eating, sleeping, exercising … everything has an effect, whether you like it or not in the end, especially to long term, “he added.

He also referred to another of the foundations of the formula for his success, the family. His wife and two children accompany him whenever possible, as do his parents. “We live according to these principles. We try to have a conscious life, understanding that we are human and we make mistakes every day, but we try to live consciously and be grateful for what we have”. That fabric includes veganism, intermittent fasting, meditation, and yoga.
To ensure that everything ran smoothly, he surrounded himself with a trustworthy team with two units that share the work: Marian Vajda and Goran Ivanisevic as coaches, Ulises Badio and Miljan Amanovic as physios, coach Marko Panichi, Spaniard Pepe Imaz as spiritual advisor and his agents Edoardo Artaldi and Elena Cappelaro. He makes everyone share in the triumphs.
