Novak Djokovic raised his season by triumphing at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career, the fourth consecutive. The former world number one was flawless in the decisive moments of the tournament, having won the last three matches played in London by return.
The Serbian star was two sets down against Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinals, but that didn’t stop him from reaching the semifinals, dominating the last three halves by far. Lifting his seventh trophy at Church Road and matching his idol Pete Sampras, the 35-year-old Belgrade native has now reached 21 Grand Slam tournaments.
Nole is now just one point behind his eternal rival Rafael Nadal, waiting to find out whether or not he can enter the United States to compete in the US Open. The ‘Djoker’ has already stated that he will not play any minor tournaments to chase points.
In a video posted on YouTube, Patrick Mouratoglou identified the talent that sets Djokovic and Nadal apart from the rest of the players.
Mouratoglou praises Novak Djokovic
“It was two matches in one.
I’m sure experience played a big role, Novak Djokovic never panicked. He started behind in many matches and kept his composure.
His refusal to lose is, if not the best in the world, one of the best with Rafael Nadal. The ability to turn matches around, to find solutions. The stakes were too high to be that strong.
His tactical knowledge was important in the final. He knew exactly what to do, and it took him a while to figure it out,” said Patrick Mouratoglou. British author and politician Claire Fox, who appeared on the TV show “Plank of the Week,” praised the Serb for the way he handled the controversies over his vaccination status.
“I also thought the way he handled what happened in Australia and America was great. I thought he was treated catastrophically by Australia where he was denied play because of his condition, his decision about his own body not taking a vaccine properly,” Renard says.
“Not one I would agree with, but whatever, it’s not my body, it’s his body. But he didn’t even show it. He made his point. They keep telling him, ‘Why do you have these big tournaments just for that and he says ‘because I have principles’ What a joy, he’s not just a brilliant tennis player, but he’s a brilliant tennis player with principles,” she added.
