"Novak Djokovic thrives on that": Becker on bedlam surrounding Djokovic, believes 'louder the better'

Eurosport expert Boris Becker doesn't think Djokovic is bothered by a packed atmosphere believing that the former player thrives in those conditions.

Crowds at the Australian Open tend to get quite loud even if there are no Aussies involved in the match. The finals and semi-finals are going to be packed and crowds should get quite loud. According to Djokovic's former coach Becker, the Serbian won't have any problem with that. On the contrary, he should thrive:

"It's a theatrical play on the court, where you want to entertain your spectators. You need the feedback. The louder and more emotional it is the better for the performances of the players - and Djokovic, in particular, thrives on that."

Reacting to yet anoher impressive win, Becker said:

"I'm not surprised, but repeatedly impressed that he is able to deliver his performances again and again. He has been on the tennis tour for quite a few years now, and he has been a bit injured physically - that he always finds the motivation and the strength to play his best tennis right on the dot is impressive.The most important thing is that he doesn't let that impress him now - the semi-final is coming up and he must not look to the future too euphorically. He must tick off the match now, relax a bit tonight, and then concentrate on the next match from tomorrow."
