Evidently she didn't trust the words shared by Novak Djokovic. The director of the Roland Garros Amelie Mauresmo, spoke on the French program C à vous on the eve of the Parisian Slam, also expressing herself on the words of the Serbian champion released on Nick Kyrgios' podcast, Nick Kyrgios Good Trouble.

"Novak Djokovic has incredible mental strength, we have seen him overcome very complex situations in an extraordinary way. In reality it is not a situation that only he experiences but it is very common. He has moments in which things do not go well, moments in which he has less motivation. He was very honest in talking about it, very transparent. But, again, he has incredible mental strength and we have seen this several times throughout his career. I distrust him. Even though we think it's harder for him now, that he's in the final part of his career, he still has extraordinary resources," she told.

The world number 1 on the podcast hosted by Nick Kyrgios Good Trouble - recorded before the start of the Australian Open - said that he is still in love with the sport and that he still has a great desire to train at many times. While in others he feels the desire and will to stay at home with his wife and children and the will to travel for tennis is decidedly lower.

"Even though little Novak deep inside me is still in love with this sport, there is probably a more mature Novak, a father and a husband, who says: Come on man, there are other things in life too," said Nole said.

Andy Roddick has a different opinion from Mauresmo. In the podcast Served with Andy Roddick, the former US champion analyzed the difficulties of the Serbian tennis player.

"Initially any of us would be shocked to see Djokovic struggling in the early rounds at Roland Garros. The reality of the facts is that, especially in the event of a difficult draw, Nole could find difficulties right away and we all know this. n the last 15 years there have never been such strong questions about Djokovic as this season. Now you would all be ready to criticize me and say that he is better than me, but this is the truth. If he still has to win a tournament you can't see him as favorite at Roland Garros, and if you don't agree on this it's simply denial. Olympic Games? There's not much left to go and I honestly thought that at some point in the season it would accelerate but things didn't go that way," said Roddick.
