There is little time left and the international tournament of Mallorca will begin where some of the most important tennis players in the world will be present. In the circuit we have seen the world number one Novak Djokovic train and not only, but also other top ten important ones such as the Russian and number two Daniil Medvedev and the Austrian Dominic Thiem.
With them present to the delight of the Spanish fans the idols of the house Pablo Carreno and Jaume Munar, tennis player from Mallorca. However, the home idol par excellence will be missing, the twenty-time winner of Slam tournaments Rafael Nadal who after the semifinal at Roland Garros decided to sit still for a few months, thanks to his advancing age, and will miss important events such as Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympic Games.
To clarify it should be remembered that the world number one and recent winner of Roland Garros will participate only in the doubles tournament, thus highlighting and a lot of curiosity in this category in the Spanish tournament.
Medvedev participates in this tournament with the hope of being able to adapt better on this surface, after the disappointing results of Halle. Of what is said the only thing now evident and absolute is that Novak Djokovic is currently the best tennis player in the world.
Winner of the last Grand Slams and phenomenal in every surface, the Serbian champion seems much ahead of any of his opponents, even to those of NextGen as demonstrated by the final won in Paris with a comeback over Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The Serbian tennis player, aged 34, spoke to Tennis Majors about his condition: "I want to be at my best at Wimbledon, but also at the US Open and the Tokyo Olympic Games, these are my priorities until the end of the year.
The program is really tough and never like this year there are only 10-15 days between Wimbledon and the Olympics and all this is not ideal but it is not the first time that I have found myself in such a situation. In any case, I'm happy with my physical, mental and emotional conditions."
Jurgen Melzer on Djokovic's historic Roland Garros triumph
Jurgen Melzer recently gave his thoughts about Novak Djokovic's historic Roland Garros triumph, and showered praise on the Serb's uncanny ability to win matches from seemingly hopeless situations.
"He has developed a lot there (on the mental side since his win over the Serb in 2010)," Melzer said. "While Musetti was certainly ailing, you have to take the game away a bit. Djokovic just knows that there is a way back in every match and he finds it very, very often.
He adapts, changes his tactics and leaves the field as the winner at the end of the day. That is what sets him apart. Although he has his own methods, he is very emotional on the field and also the direction of his box," the Austrian added. "But that obviously helps him and accordingly he is doing a lot right."
