Novak Djokovic does not have much of a choice’, says top coach

Djokovic continues to add reasons to consider himself as the GOAT.

 

Novak Djokovic had no choice but to recognize the superiority of Rafael Nadal after their quarterfinal clash at Roland Garros 2022. The Serbian tennis player, current number one in the world, gave all the credit to his rival and was far from put a pretext of not being able to meet the goal that had been set in the second Grand Slam of the season.

 

 

Congratulations to Rafael. He has been better than me in important moments. I had my chances, serving to win the fourth set, but it’s a match that could go either way. He has shown why he is the great champion that he is by being mentally strong and finishing the match like he has.

 

 

Congratulations to him and his team. Without a doubt, he has deserved it”, valued the champion of the last edition of the Parisian tournament. On the sensations that the commitment left him, he indicated: “In a match like this, you go through moments of ups and downs.

I know I could have played better, but I’m proud to have been alive until the last point. I’ve lost to a better player than me.

 

 

I had my options and I didn’t take them.” In the end, the 2022 season of ‘Nole’ is far from meeting the expectations that he had set for himself.

He was unable to participate in the Australian Open for the entire novel with the COVID-19 vaccine and now he was unable to successfully defend his crown on the Paris clay. He will now concentrate his efforts for the next big stop on the calendar which is the Wimbledon tournament, where he will also defend his crown.

 

Ivanisevic opens up on Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has been tipped as the favorite for the upcoming Wimbledon Championships by his coach Goran Ivanisevic. “Of course he can [recover quickly], and he does not have much of a choice, if we are being honest.

He is the biggest favourite at Wimbledon, just like Rafa was here [in Paris]. Novak now needs to rest well and prepare for Wimbledon physically and mentally. I am sure that he can do it and I think he will win Wimbledon, I have a good feeling about that.

He needs to focus on grass now,” Ivanisevic said. Goran Ivanisevic also revealed that Novak Djokovic is unlikely to play any warm-up events before Wimbledon. “Most probably not. We will see [about his participation in warm-up tournaments], but now the key thing for him is to recover mentally.

As I have said in the past, Novak is a genius with a different mindset than most of us. Even though he needs less time than most to come back and to figure some things out, he still needs to do it. He has overcome tough losses in the past, and I am completely certain that he will be ready for Wimbledon,” Ivanisevic said.
