In life some things are more important than victories

Despite being denied in his 11th attempt for the only Grand Slam title he has yet to win , Djokovic displayed extraordinary grace and warmth towards Wawrinka. His post match embrace and chat at the net with the winner was a pleasant departure from the usually quick and perfunctory handshake. His praise for the underdog champion at the awards ceremony was sincere and thoughtful. Speaking in French , Djokovic said ” It’s not easy for me to speak right now, but I have to say that in life some things are more important than victories and those are character and respect. I have great respect for you, Stan. You are great champion with a big heart and you deserve this title.”

β€” Novak Djokovic , after loosing the French Open Finals to Wawrinka in 2015
