The Serbian star has consistently spoken about the difficulties of competing against established giants like Federer and Rafael Nadal during his early career. When asked if his expressive personality caused friction with senior players, Djokovic pinpointed Federer.

“Definitely, Federer didn’t like the way I behaved at the beginning,” he admitted. “I think it didn’t sit well with him. I don’t know about the others.”

Djokovic suggests his outspoken nature, particularly his vocal ambition to become the best, ruffled some feathers.

“I guess I wasn’t the favorite type of guy for some of the top guys because I wasn’t afraid to say that I wanted to be the best player in the world,” he explained. “I was confident, and I felt like I had the game to back it up.”
