Bertolucci praises Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal's superiority

Novak Djokovic won his 7th title at Wimbledon, by beating Nick Kyrigos in the final. The victory of the London Slam has, this time, a different flavor given all the countermeasures taken by the organizers due to the Russian-Ukrainian war, with the Serbian who has lost many points in the ATP ranking.

The numbers, however, mark 21 in the box of the Majors won by Djokovic, who is brought to only one length by Rafael Nadal, but which he probably will not be able to reach given the risk of not playing the US Open. In the aftermath of the conclusion of Wimbledon 2022, a character who has become a protagonist in Italy with his unmistakable voice and irony, Paolo Bertolucci, former Italian champion and now a commentator for Sky, takes the floor: "When you bump into Nadal and Djokovic, if you are not prepared from the psychological point of view you are not sent back, you are really kicked out of the courtroom," declared Bertolucci, using one of the usual metaphors he uses a lot in talking about tennis.

Bertolucci is with Kyrgios: "No to the perfect character"

The 2022 edition of Wimbledon will certainly be remembered for the well-known remodulations, above all that of banning the participation of Russians and Belarusians and the non-assignment of ATP points.

As for the facts on the court, on the other hand, particular attention was paid to, for example, the beautiful journey of Jannik Sinner, who managed to go 2 sets to 0 ahead against Novak Djokovic, the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal and the consequent arrival in the final of the his expected opponent Nick Kyrgios.

The Australian, who has demonstrated his immense tennis skills over the years, has finally had the opportunity to show himself to the public on a prestigious stage like a Grand Slam final, a result never achieved in his career until Wimbledon 2022.

Even on the Canberra player, as strong as he was sui generis, Paolo Bertolucci expressed himself, who in some way accepts the nonconformist nature of Nick Kyrgios: "Kyrgios? I'm not looking for the perfect Nadal character.

The player must also be given the opportunity to say something, break the racket, it is important to stay on the track of fairness. The risk, if not, is that he will hurt himself."
