Mats Wilander: Rafael Nadal didn’t get out of trap Novak Djokovic had set for him

Published

Eurosport tennis expert Mats Wilander absolutely enjoyed watching world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 3 seed Rafael Nadal grind it out on the clay courts of Roland Garros. Djokovic, seeded at No. 1, entered the match as the underdog to Nadal but ended up stunning the record 13-time French Open champion 3-6 6-3 7-6 (4) 6-2.

Djokovic led 5-3 in the third set but failed to serve out for the match and then faced a set point in the 12th game. However, Djokovic saved a set point in the third set and then won the tie-break to take a 2-1 lead. Nadal started the fourth set with a 2-0 lead but his lead was short-lived as Djokovic claimed three consecutive breaks to overturn the deficit and win in four sets.

“I haven’t [seen a better clay court match],” the Swede told Eurosport, per Tennishead. “It seemed like the courts were playing really fast and they had so little time and both players had to anticipate when the other player hit.

“Novak, that’s as aggressive as I have seen him be on a clay court especially at Roland-Garros. “This is clay court tennis at a different level to me because it was so quick and Novak was getting so much pace on his shots.The movement and the feel at the net, the athleticism, everything is incredible”.

Djokovic tactially outsmarted world No. 3 Nadal
“The first two sets, we’re not going to talk about them but that’s what made the difference. Novak went out in the first set and said I’m going to play every other shot to Rafa’s forehand and every other shot to his backhand, so 50:50.

“Then in the second set he played three out of four to the backhand, then he had moved Rafa over to his forehand and now the backhand was open. Rafa didn’t get out of that trap Novak had set for him

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov

on

The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.

The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.

The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.

World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

Opinion: Reckless Novak Djokovic paying the ultimate price for his vanity project

His father, Srdjan, was unimpressed by Dimitrov and blamed the Bulgarian.

“Why did it happen? Because that man probably came sick, who knows from where,” Djokovic Sr. said of Dimitrov on RTL Croatia TV.

“He didn’t test here, he tested somewhere else … I think that’s not fair.

“He inflicted damage to both Croatia and to us as a family in Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”

Kyrgios, who has been very outspoken about the Adria Tour, hit back at Srdjan in an Instagram Story as he wrote ” don’t push the blame”.
