'Djokovic struggled to get the credit he deserves in the era of Federer, Nadal'

As quoted by Tennis.com, Roger Federer's former coach Paul Annacone spoke about Novak Djokovic being less popular than Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. The American said: “Unfortunately for Novak, he came along in the era of Nadal and Federer.

While he has been magnificent, it’s so difficult for him to truly get the credit he deserves. He’s a champion, pure and simple." Miami Open Tournament Director James Blake said: "His movement was what shocked me.

When I played him, it felt like I was doing a two-on-one drill, and the two were never missing. It didn’t seem possible to get a ball by him, ever”. Jimmy Arias, former world No. 5, said: “His return is the greatest in the history of tennis.

Normally, players fall into one of two categories: defensive returners who put all the balls back in, and aggressive returners who tend to guess. Djokovic is the first player who does both." Stefanos Tsitsipas spoke about the upcoming ATP Cup: "It's going to be a very strong start of the season.

We'll have many difficult things to face at the ATP Cup, so it won't be easy for us. And we're going to have to bring the best out and work as a unit and work as a team,” he said. “I know we're playing individually, but what makes it exciting is playing as a team and sticking together and playing for one cause”.
