During an interview with Eurosport, Justine Henin analyzed in detail the situation of Novak Djokovic, who has just announced that he will not participate in the two ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami. Henin said: "There is no doubt that Novak Djokovic is going through a difficult time.
In difficult times, you are often forced to make important decisions. Nole is no exception to this rule. I think the Serbian got stuck a bit after the defeat against Alexander Zverev at the Tokyo Olympics. Djokovic's confidence has cracked since that day, if you know what I mean.
Recently, we learned that his longtime coach Marian Vajda was not in favor of his participation in the Games. This separation will certainly have an impact on Novak in the coming months." The Belgrade had to witness the triumph of his eternal rival Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open.
The Spaniard, who overtook Federer and Djokovic in the all-time Grand Slam standings, will try to stretch further at Roland Garros.
Djokovic is going through a problematic moment
Novak Djokovic is having a lot of difficulties at the start of the season.
The Serbian phenomenon has played only one tournament so far, not having been able to defend the title at the Australian Open due to the well-known events. His run in Dubai was already interrupted in the quarters by the hand of the revived Jiri Vesely, able to exploit the negative day of the 20 times Grand Slam champion.
Due to the vaccination issue, the 34-year-old from Belgrade will not be able to participate in the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami. As if that were not enough, Daniil Medvedev overtook him at the top of the ATP ranking, becoming the 27th number 1 in the history of men's tennis.
On the other hand, good news has come from France, where the Green Pass will soon be abolished. This should allow Nole to compete in the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo and above all in Roland Garros. A few days ago, Djokovic and Marian Vajda announced that they have ended their glorious collaboration. Under the leadership of the Slovakian coach, Novak has won all 20 majors that embellish his showcase.
