Novak Djokovic makes 90 at the Nur-Sultan ATP event. It is not a particular phrase inherent to the Serb, but simply the number of titles of the 21 times Slam champion. Novak Djokovic beat Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final in two sets, defeated with the result of 6-3; 6-4 in an hour and 16 minutes of play.
The Balkan champion has experienced a rather complicated year, the decision not to carry out the vaccine for Covid cost him the absence of the Australian Open and the New York tournament, the US Open, but Nole never stops.
During this season the rules related to the Coronavirus have slowed the rise of the Balkan tennis player and also for this reason Nole has dropped considerably in the standings. Djokovic returned to the pitch at the Laver Cup where he was among those who greeted Roger Federer, one of the greatest rivals in his career.
Later he returned to the ATP circuit and his impact was devastating. In the last two weeks Djokovic has won the ATP tournaments in Tel Aviv and Astana, thus closing the Finals question. Thanks to the victory of Wimbledon Djokovic will therefore be among the 8 participants in the ATP Finals at the end of the year and will have the opportunity to play another tournament and maybe try to win.
There are a few tournaments to go until the end of the year, but Nole has no intention of stopping.
Djokovic targets Nadal and Federer
As stated several times in recent weeks Novak Djokovic is heavier than ever and unlike Roger Federer he has no intention of retiring from the world of tennis.
Over the course of his career Djokovic has set many records and still has many still in his sights. One of these is certainly the one linked to the number of tournaments won at the end of their career. Leading this special ranking Jimmy Connors who finished his career with 109 titles won, Federer retired a few weeks ago and ended his career with 103 wins.
The Swiss champion in the past had harbored hopes of overcoming the American but physical problems have slowed his rise. In third place in this ranking is Ivan Lendl, at 94 and just ahead of Rafael Nadal, stopped at 92. Novak Djokovic has won two titles in two weeks and with the success in Kazakhstan reached 90 career titles.
Now Nole is less than two from Nadal and the two of them are the only ones in the first places to still be protagonists on the Tour. Djokovic is physically and mentally healthy and seems more energized than ever, he has put Nadal in his sights and all tennis fans are curious to see how far he can go.
