'Novak Djokovic is one of the toughest guys I’ve ever seen', says expert

The number one in the world and twenty times winner of Grand Slam titles Novak Djokovic has always been very active on social networks, which he takes care of in a maniacal way and which he uses very often. The Serbian tennis player creates posts and Instagram Stories to send greetings to colleagues and celebrate gestures and business of tennis players and not, as he did, among other things, recently after the victory of the Australian Open by the eternal rival, the Spanish Rafael Nadal.

In the last few hours Nole has used her Instagram profile to pay homage to NFL legend Tom Brady, a quaterback who has recently announced his retirement from the sport. While Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest tennis players ever, Tom Brady, a 44-year-old player or ex, is considered by many to be the strongest player ever in NFL history.

The last few months have been very complicated for Novak Djokovic and for his career with the Serbian tennis player who was stopped before the Australian Open due to lack of vaccination for Covid-19 and that the date of his return is not yet known with certainty.

of him. After the announcement of Brady's retirement, the Serbian champion posted a story where he wrote 'Absolute legend, thanks for all the inspiration' In the past, Novak said that he was inspired by Tom Brady to go through his incredible career.

Brady retired at 44 and won his last Superbowl at 43, the latest in a long and incredible streak. The athlete posted the last post with the following message: "I always thought that football was a sport where you always give 100%, otherwise you won't be successful."

Krajicek talks about Djokovic

Novak Djokovic faces an uncertain future amid ongoing doubts over whether he will be allowed to play in upcoming events if he remains unvaccinated against Covid-19, yet former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek believes the Serbian will again thrive amid the adversity.

“What happened in Australia was tough for him and it will be interesting to see what happens in Dubai. Normally you would say this is going to motivate the guy and you don’t want to play him because he is more lethal, but this is different.

He is used to fighting on the court with the crowd, his opponent and maybe himself sometimes, but this must have been difficult. This is a total different pressure and a different disappointment than having the crowd against you or being match point down at Wimbledon and coming back to win.

But you know what, he is one of the toughest guys I’ve ever seen in sport and maybe it will fire him up for. It’s tough to know how he will respond to this”. The debate over Djokovic’s deportation from Australia last month due to his unvaccinated status continues to rumble on, with Krajicek suggesting the rules were not clarified before the player arrived.

“There was a misunderstanding or a miscommunication between Novak, Tennis Australia, or Victoria,” he added. “If he thought he couldn’t get into the country, he wouldn’t have traveled there."
