Novak Djokovic: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/1_efbbn6l0/uiconf_id/5590821

What he said:

“Well, it would be great if that machine had wings so it can fly wherever I am playing.”

Novak Djokovic denies that the CVAC Pod or “pressurised egg” is the reason behind his stupendous run of form this year. The technology, Cyclic Variations In Adaptive Conditioning (CVAC) simulates “rapid changes in altitude, which allegedly stimulates the body on a cellular level, therefore increasing oxygen absorption and promoting muscle recovery—in essence boosting the lymphatic system.”

In his initial talk with the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the men’s No. 1 player praised the device:

"I think it really helps — not with muscle but more with recovery after an exhausting set.It’s like a spaceship. It’s very interesting technology."

Djokovic has since refuted using the technology to enhance his results this year.

The Djoker said:

"I’m going to repeat it for the last time: It doesn’t have any influence on my success."

What he really meant:

“Get real. I can’t take that machine with me everywhere, can I?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“The Flying Serb and his Flying Machine—wouldn’t that make a great headline?”
