NOVAK Djokovic says he feels even more indebted to his compatriots after receiving Serbia’s top honour from President Boris Tadic.

President Tadic said the five-time Grand Slam singles winner deserved the Karadjordjeva Star Medal for “special merits in representing Serbia”. Djokovic said in his speech that “my people have indebted me even further with this.” He added: “I may have dreamed of raising the trophy at Wimbledon, but I could never have thought that my country would reward me with such a great honour.”
