Cameron Norrie reveals he has seen Novak Djokovic “bringing his own food in little Tupperware things” and that’s the level of commitment he wants to be making. Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam champion, has always been known for his very strict diet and strict training routines.
Djokovic’s absolute commitment to every detail is one of the biggest reasons why he will go down as one of the greatest players in tennis history. “I’ve seen him bringing his own food to events in little Tupperware things.
That is even more meticulous than bringing your scale with you,” Norrie said on Tennis Channel, per Sportskeeda. “I would like to think that he is doing the same and the same method to take care of little details like that.”
Norrie on overcoming Andy Murray in Cincinnati
In the Cincinnati second round, Norrie beat Murray 3-6 6-3 6-4. “I am still struggling with the conditions a litte bit and trying to find rhythm. I just got through with my attitude and stayed positive.
I managed to find myself at one set all, I don’t know how and the last set was a battle, he had some chances and I played a couple of good points,” Norrie said. “That’s how it rolls sometimes in tennis. It’s a massive win for me beating Andy for the first time.
It’s not the way I wanted to beat him with him cramping, but it’s nice to get through.” After Cincinnati, Norrie will turn his focus onto the US Open. At this past Wimbledon, Norrie made his maiden Grand Slam semifinal.
In the Wimbledon semifinal, Norrie fell short to Djokovic in four sets. Norrie got off to a good start versus Djokovic – winning the first set – but then lost the next three sets and the match. It remains to be seen if Norrie can make another deep Grand Slam run at the US Open.
