The prohibitive weather conditions do not seem to matter to the world no. 1 Novak Djokovic, who continued his conditioning and training during a snowfall in view of the new tennis season that is about to begin. The Serbian tennis player has posted a video on his Instagram profile in which he trains in the snow with the help of his wife Jelena.
As you can see from the images Djokovic runs and exercises using the weight of his wife, who is loaded on his shoulders, to make the training heavier and resist fatigue as much as possible.
From a sporting point of view, 2020 was a very special year for Novak Djokovic.
The Serbian champion managed to triumph for the eighth time at the Australian Open but had to swallow the bitter mouthful of the disqualification at the US Open, for inadvertently throwing the ball in the face of a line judge, while being defeated soundly by Rafael Nadal in the final of Roland Garros.
In a year characterized by the global pandemic, it was foreseeable to alternate great performances with games in which you are not at the top. Equally difficult to maintain concentration and pressure during tournaments, due to constant interruptions and checks for tampons, absence of crowds and canceled events.
Probably a combination of these factors did not allow the Serbian tennis player to express his best tennis continuously, giving the impression in certain matches of being tired and at times listless. In one of the last rounds of the season, the ATP 500 in Vienna, Djokovic suffered a clear defeat at the hands of Lorenzo Sonego, giving the impression that he has no desire to play after securing the ATP number 1 until the end of the year.
"Novak just wanted to finish the season at the top of the rankings and went to Vienna with that goal in mind. As soon as he secured that goal, that is, after winning two hard-fought matches, he had nothing more to ask against Lorenzo Sonego.
That's why he hardly took the field that day," explained Mikhail Youzhny Talking about the court, the greatest tennis stars on the planet, like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka herself, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep and all the others, will come back for the upcoming Australian Open 2021, which will be held in Melbourne from 8 February: it will be the most awaited sports event of the first part of the new season.
It will be a very spectacular season, and all of us hope without the problems of the last one, with some presence of the crowd in the courts across the world. Roger Federer will not play the Happy Slam, to well recover from the two surgeries of 2020: he will come back only at the end of February/beginning of March 2021.
