Dane Sweeny opens up on sharing court with World number one Novak Djokovic


Dane Sweeny opens up about the unique experience of sharing the court with the world number one, Novak Djokovic, during a practice session at the Australian Open 2024.

Australian talent Dane Sweeny had a remarkable experience even before his Australian Open debut – a practice session with Novak Djokovic at Melbourne Park. Sweeny, who later fought valiantly in a five-set loss to Francisco Cerundolo, shared his thoughts on the memorable encounter with the 24-time Grand Slam champion.

Sweeny expressed feeling initially intimidated by Djokovic’s legendary status but noted how the Serbian star quickly made him comfortable on the court. “Just his aura… And I was a little bit intimidated at the start, but Novak Djokovic made me feel so comfortable,” said Sweeny in his post-match press conference.

He described Djokovic joking around and complimenting his shotmaking, creating a relaxed atmosphere. “Yeah, just to have the greatest of all time on the other side of the net, yeah, it was a surreal experience,” he added.

Sweeny also revealed how the practice session with Djokovic materialized. Tennis Australia’s Paul Kilderry approached him on short notice, informing him that Djokovic was looking for a hitting partner. Despite already having a planned session, Sweeny eagerly accepted the chance to hit with Djokovic. “Without even asking Omar, I said, yep, I’ll take it,” he explained.
