‘One of the Biggest Wishes’ – Novak Djokovic Desires to Have a ‘Roger Federer-Like’ Farewell Once He Hangs Up His Boots

In an exclusive interview, the 21-time Grand Slam winner, Novak Djokovic, revealed the ideal manner in which he wants to retire from tennis. The Nole claimed that the time to retire hadn’t arrived for him or his on-court rival, Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic felt honored to be a part of Roger Federer’s farewell at this year Laver Cup. Djokovic joined his fellow rival, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray, to give an unforgettable farewell to the Swiss Maestro. Now, he wished for a similar farewell when he decides to step away from the sport.

Novak Djokovic wants a farewell just like that of Roger Federer’s
Although Djokovic isn’t planning to retire anytime soon, he wants a farewell surrounded by friends and rival, just like the one enjoyed by Roger Federer at the 2022 Laver Cup. Djokovic and Rafael Nadal were present on the court when Federer’s 24-year-long career came to an end.

The Swiss Maestro had taken a 14-month break before returning for his final match. He teamed up with his biggest rival, Rafael Nadal, to play doubles, before sitting on Team Europe’s bench to support the other members of the squad, including the Serb.

On social media, pictures of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal crying while watching the Laver Cup went viral. The retirement of Roger Federer appears to have served as an inspiration for the Serbian. He now wants to enjoy a similar experience at his retirement match.

“His footprint, his legacy, his mark that he left behind is going to live forever…he has not only achieved so much on the court but he has inspired so many young players to take a racquet in their hand.”

In an interview with the Tennis Channel, he said, “I was very honored to be there (2022 Laver Cup ) and um, we were all emotional of course. Because I think you know the intensity of the rivalries is so high that you don’t have….time to reflect on maybe some larger things..”

The Nole further added, “But uh one thing is for sure I would love to have the greatest Rivals that I had particularly Roger, Rafa, and Andy there, you know, whenever that happens. I would love to have them there. That’s one of the biggest wishes.”
