Two fresh Australian Open champions, Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic, have a lot in common, according to Novak.
The third-ranked ATP player talked to the press at Melbourne Park the day after winning his maiden Grand Slam saying,
“I think she’s a very strong female, […] She is mentally very strong and is a very strong personality. She doesn’t allow anybody to fool with her, and she shows it every time on the court. She already has three Grand Slams. That proves everything. We are kind of on the same line in life. We’ve been through difficult things in our career, and we appreciate success much more, even though we are still young.”
BTW, do you remember that Sharapova was sitting in Djokovic’s box at the 2007 US Open, and soon after they were partying together in New York? I have to notice that these two young, intelligent, successful, and rich tennis players would surely make a great couple! But for now, they’re just friends.
