There is a better chance of seeing Goran Ivanisevic win Umag, according to his coach, than there is of Novak Djokovic playing in the US Open. While Ivanisevic is in Croatia for the ATP Umag tournament this year, Djokovic went home after Wimbledon to rest.
Djokovic is ineligible for entry into the United States because he has not received the COVID-19 vaccination, which is required for entry. According to gol.dnevnik.hr, Ivanisevic said, “I am more optimistic that I will win Umag, if Tomislav gives me an invitation.”
“The year began with a tragedy in Australia and continued to be difficult and sad throughout. Without a doubt, the ATP’s decision not to award points at Wimbledon was absurd.” In 2019, Ivanisevic began assisting Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam winner.
Ivanisevic won his only Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon in 2001. “When I started coaching, I never imagined that I would win more Grand Slams than I did as a player. There will be more Grand Slam victories as long as Novak is competing.
Playing is important to him, as is being able to compete “This is what Ivanisevic said.
Djokovic’s Wimbledon victory, according to Ivanisevic
Djokovic won his 21st Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon after being barred from competing at the Australian Open and then losing in the quarterfinals at the French Open.
“To put it simply, he required it. When it mattered most, he proved that he is, in fact, the best player on grass “To which Ivanisevic remarked. Djokovic and Nadal have now surpassed Federer on the list of all-time Grand Slam winners.
“Long before I coached Djokovic, I predicted that he and Nadal would eventually amass more titles than Roger Federer. No ceiling can be placed on a healthy person. I still think they’ll both come out on top “Ivanisevic summed things up.
