'Even when Novak Djokovic plays well, there are...', says ATP ace

Over the past decade, Serbian champion Novak Djokovic has achieved exceptional results and is considered by many to be the strongest athlete of this period in history. Nole has achieved continuity of results on all surfaces and has brought phenomena like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal closer in pursuit of the Grand Slam.

The three together are now part of the Big Three and have been competing for the GOAT title for years. Millions of fans debate on social networks about the best and increasingly feel more comfortable believing in the exploits of the Balkan phenomenon.

Djokovic's year 2022 had great and enormous victories, from the Wimbledon title to winning Masters 1000, 500 and 250 tournaments in a campaign where he was unable to play in the United States and Australia due to his vaccination status.

Now, after receiving the desired permission, Novak will be able to go to win his trophy at the Australian Open and start the next season normally. Novak Djokovic has played few tournaments in 2022, conditioned precisely by his non-tennis choices.

Despite everything, however, Djokovic has achieved excellent results, has won a Slam like Wimbledon (which, however, did not give him any Atp points) and has finished in the Top 10, ending 2022 by winning the Atp Finals in Turin.

The Serbian's numbers are extraordinary, especially taking into account the forced absence that forced him to miss several months on the circuit. Djokovic was, however, the tennis player with the most victories over Top 10 players in 2022, even better than the current world number one, Carlos Alcaraz.

Impeccable data that underlines the great level of play of the Serbian phenomenon, Djokovic even here did better than Alcaraz and Nadal despite having several fewer tournaments. In the standings, one of the surprises is undoubtedly the Danish tennis player Holger Rune, a very young player who has the same number of victories as Alcaraz, behind Nadal and Tsitsipas.

David Goffin reflects on Djokovic

From Normandy where he was beaten in the semi-final of the Open de Caen by Roberto Bautista Agut, David Goffin praised Novak Djokovic whom he still considers the best player in the world.

“He is by far number 1 at the moment, even if it is not on paper. He can't win it all either. We see that sometimes even when he plays well, there are little surprises like against Rune. Over a full season, he doesn't lose much...

Medvedev, Zverev, Tsitsipas... and the young people who arrive like Sinner or Alcaraz, it's a nice cocktail! “, declared the Belgian at the microphone of Tennis Actu.
