Patrick Mouratoglou, a French tennis coach, recently gave his thoughts on the Wimbledon final between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios. Despite the high expectations, the Serbian champion came out on top in straight sets, dropping the first set but dominating the second and third to leave his opponent with nothing.
Nole’s clear victory was explained by Mouratoglou on his YouTube channel “Both the serve and the return play an important role in a match, and they did so here as well. He struggled to return Kyrgios’ serve early on in the match, but once he started playing, Novak began to read his opponent’s serve very well.
The response from Novak Djokovic was critical, and as a result, the exchanges between the two players gained significance throughout the contest. With Djokovic as the clear favorite, Nick Murray had a chance to win if he could maintain his dominance with the serve.
We’re all aware that Novak Djokovic has the best serve in the world, if not the best ever. During the match, it’s all about the rallies, so Djokovic has an advantage over Kyrgios. This, I believe, was the driving force behind Nole’s victory.”

As a result, the well-known coach went on: “The length of the exchanges and Novak Djokovic’s ability to shorten them are also important factors in this match.
When the stakes are high, Novak Djokovic plays with a lot of confidence and favors long rallies, making it difficult for Nole to make a mistake early in the match. It’s important to note that Nick Kyrgios’ form isn’t optimal due to his extended absence from training, so if he wanted to win, he needed to keep the rallies brief.
This is what happened because he didn’t do what he should have done. Djokovic studied the opponent’s serve in the first set, then prepared and won it. Djokovic won the match thanks to his composure and composure.”
Novak Djokovic, as everyone knows, is currently unable to travel to the United States to compete in the US Open 202 because of U.S. government vaccine restrictions. More information on this subject will be released in the coming days and weeks.
