Panatta: "I don't like Novak Djokovic"

Former Italian tennis Adriano Panatta came back to talk about the Big Three Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, during the Italian Radio Rai Uno show Un Giorno da Pecora. Panatta harshly criticized Djokovic and current tennis: "Novak Djokovic? I have nothing personal against him, but I don't like him.

In the last two years he hasn't got one right, I am referring in particular to his statements. I don't like today's tennis, I would say that it bores me. I only follow him for Italian tennis players, let's say for patriotism." He also praised Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal: "Roger is and will always be tennis.

Nadal? I enjoy watching his matches and above all I admire him from a human point of view." On his countrymen Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner, Adriano added: " Who is stronger? Both are very strong and modern athletes, I must say that they are very different from each other."
