Mouratoglou explains the key reasons for Novak Djokovic’s victory over Kyrgios
Patrick Mouratoglou, a French tennis coach, recently shared his thoughts on the Wimbledon final between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios. The Serbian champion prevailed without much difficulty, dropping the first set before dominating the rest of the match and leaving his opponent with nothing.
Mouratoglou posted the following video to his YouTube channel as an explanation for Nole’s decisive win: “The serve and return are two of the most important aspects of a match, and they were crucial here as well.
Novak had trouble returning Kyrgios’ serve early on, but once he got into the match, he began to read his opponent’s serve exceptionally well. The consistency of Novak Djokovic’s replies was a major factor in the match’s development.
Djokovic became the overwhelming favorite, but Nick still had a shot if he could play a significant role with his serve. Djokovic has the best return of any professional tennis player, and perhaps ever.
Djokovic is better than Kyrgios in rallies, which is what matters once the ball is in play. That’s why I believe Nole won.”
To explain Mouratoglou and Novak Djokovic
The renowned trainer went on to say: “The length of the rallies and Novak Djokovic’s ability to maintain his advantage over them will also be crucial.
It’s difficult for Nole to be the first to make a mistake when playing a high-stakes match against Novak Djokovic because he plays with so much confidence and prefers to engage in long rallies.
Nick Kyrgios’ form is not great because he hasn’t played in a while, so he had to cut the rallies short if he wanted to try to win. This is the result of him not doing so.
