Novak Djokovic added a 26th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title to his resume by winning the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris for a third consecutive year, downing second seed Andy Murray in the final and improving his record against his nearest pursuant in the Emirates ATP Rankings to 21-9.
For Djokovic, there are few secrets to finding the road to success.
“Ever since very early childhood days, I have been surrounded with people who were very professional, very knowledgeable about the sport and lifestyle that is required for an athlete to reach the peak of his sport,” Djokovic said. “I think I have inherited that, first of all, from my parents, who were involved in different sports in their lives. Several coaches, people, mentors that have shaped me into the person and player I am today. I was fortunate to gather advice on how I should think about everything. Not just practice itself but recovery, nutrition and the psychological part, as well.”
