World number 2 Tennis player Novak Djokovic got emotional while talking about his friend late Kobe Bryant after winning quarter-final in Australian Open 2020.
His emotions were clear when he recalled some memorable life moments with one of the greatest basketball players Bryant. “It really caught us by surprise. He was one of the greatest athletes of all time. He inspired me, helped me, motivated me whenever I needed,” said Djokovic who set up a semi-final showdown in the Australian Open with Roger Federer after winning quarter-final by 6-4 6-3 7-6(1) against Canada’s hapless Milos Raonic.
It must be noted here that former American Basketball player Bryant lost his life in a helicopter crash on Sunday. Her daughter was along with him.
