After Djokovic spent the year fuelled by his desire to write his name in the history books, seven-time Grand Slam champion Henin wonders if the 34-year-old will have the same drive in 2022.
The Serb famously reached his milestone of winning the French Open for the first time in 2016 and struggled with his motivation after, not winning another Major until Wimbledon 2018.
“And Novak Djokovic? What about his desire? We always have the feeling that Novak Djokovic’s appetite keeps growing. Will it continue like this? It is very difficult to say. He will still want to win. He certainly needs to recharge his batteries now,” Henin said.
“It’s been a tough season. He knows who is going to get opportunities, so maybe he won’t be as dominant as he used to be. At least, that’s what we can assume.
“But Novak Djokovic, he’s full of surprises, sometimes hard to figure out, sometimes hard to predict. And so, it’s going to be a really exciting 2022 season.”
