Djokovic reveals he lost motivation after completing career grand slam last year

World number two Novak Djokovic said he lost motivation after winning the French Open to complete a career grand slam last year, but believes he has rediscovered his “mojo”.

The Serb, who split with his coaching team earlier this month, reached the semi-finals of the Madrid Open last week – the first time he had reached the last four of a tournament since January.

“If I could describe my tennis in one word, I feel like I’m in transition,” Djokovic said in an interview on the ATP website. 

“After winning Roland Garros, I didn’t know how I was going to feel. I never had that issue after winning a big trophy, of bouncing back and finding new ways to motivate and inspire myself.

“But last year I found some emptiness for the first time in my life in terms of motivation. I needed a few months to think about things and get that mojo back on the court.”
