Novak Djokovic's season was simply extraordinary, filled with records and titles. The ATP world no.1 has proven that his age is just a number, and his 36 years make no difference in a match against young 20-year-olds. The 2024 season will start again from Australia and once again Nole will be the big favourite.
The Australian Open is the Slam tournament where he has won the most and, in Melbourne, Nole will attempt to attack his 25th Grand Slam title. Nick Kyrgios and the former tennis player Jim Courier spoke as guests on Tennis Channel Live and made their predictions for the 2024 Australian Open.
Courier has no doubts about this and declared: "Betting against Novak Djokovic in Australia has now become like betting against Rafa Nadal at Roland Garros. Rafa has won 14 times in Paris on clay, Nole ten times and at the moment he has not shown anything that could dissuade us from this prediction." Nick Kyrgios also agreed and revealed: "I think it's an obvious prediction, I also say Novak.
He is very comfortable in Australia and already last year he seemed unassailable. I see no signs of him slowing down and I really believe he will win it again."
Djokovic beyond his years
Various tennis players have said it recently: with him, 36 seems like the new 26 and doubts continue as to who can really put an end to the Serbian champion's dominance.
In 2023, Djokovic won and dominated the ATP Tour. A season made up of 3 Grand Slam titles and a final lost only in the fifth set and after a real battle with Carlos Alcaraz. In recent weeks, Djokovic won the ATP Finals, the end-of-year event, for the 7th time in his career.
A title that perhaps legitimizes his GOAT status. The media and insiders were enchanted by his performances in Turin where he annihilated in the semi-final and final first Carlos Alcaraz and then Jannik Sinner, a tennis player who had beaten him only a few days earlier. Nole has no intention of stopping and the Serbian is in better shape than ever, a candidate to win again next year.
