Jim Courier: "Novak Djokovic is like Tom Brady"

In the latest edition of the Inside-In podcast, Jim Courier analyzed Novak Djokovic's prospects in detail. Courier said: "It seems that Novak Djokovic is back in top form and his body is not that of a normal 35 year old.

He could have the same longevity as an icon like Tom Brady. What surprised me most about Novak? that he has brought to his serve. His trajectories are much more difficult for opponents to read, being able to find all possible angles.

In the past, he relied almost exclusively on body and slice serve so as not to strain too much his elbow." It was news a few days ago that Nole will be able to compete in the Australian Open 2023. The local government has lifted the three-year ban on the Serbian, the protagonist of a bad soap opera in Melbourne earlier this year.

Djokovic's season

Novak Djokovic is trying to end a rather troubled season with a flourish. The former world number 1 paid the price for his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus, which forced him to skip the Australian Open and the US Open.

In addition to suffering serious damage to his image, the Serbian phenomenon has seen his eternal rival Rafael Nadal stretch in the all-time Grand Slam standings. Also due to his vaccination status, the 35-year-old from Belgrade also had to give up all the American Masters 1000, Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal and Cincinnati.

His 2022 took a different direction thanks to his seventh triumph at Wimbledon, the fourth in a row. Nole has thus equaled his idol Pete Sampras and hoisted himself to 21 Majors, just one length away from Nadal's record.

Djokovic is busy this week at the ATP Finals in Turin, where he is the big favorite for the win. Novak broke the pass for the final of the tournament, after beating Taylor Fritz in the semifinals. Djokovic will be also present at the Australian Open 2023, after he missed last edition to the anti-covid rules.
