“Wawrinka is the only player to crack Djokovic’s baseline game,” said Arias.
According to Jimmy Arias, Stan Wawrinka is the only player who can outmuscle Novak Djokovic from the baseline. Additionally, he discussed Roger Federer‘s backhand. Wawrinka defeated Nole in two Grand Slam finals, the 2015 Roland Garros and the 2016 US Open, despite losing 20 of their 26 head-to-head contests.
Added Jimmy Arias: “Stan Wawrinka was incredibly difficult to beat when he was at his best. Both his forehand and backhand may be executed with equal quickness. He was able to win three Grand Slams during the Big 3 era thanks to this quality.
He was the only player capable of overwhelming Novak Djokovic from the baseline when he came “in the zone.” Nole felt helpless to lessen Stan’s influence.” Jimmy went on to examine the top one-handed backshells: “It would be impossible to forget to mention Richard Gasquet and Dominic Thiem.
Stan and Dominic would always respond from a distance, and Richard would stand somewhat to the front. Roger Federer, who was near to the court and could answer with both a top and a backhand, provided the best backhand comeback.”
What will the US hard court season look like for Novak Djokovic? By stealing multiple records from his enduring rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic ended their reign of dominance. In 2021, the Serbian champion came very near to completing the “Calendar Grand Slam,” but his goal was dashed just before the line.
Due to the immense pressure he was under, Nole gave up to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final. The “Djoker” did not have a good start to 2022 since he chose not to get inoculated against the coronavirus.
The 35-year-old from Belgrade suffered severe image damage in addition to being unable to defend his championship at the Australian Open. At Roland Garros, Novak did not get past the quarterfinals; however, he made up for it by winning Wimbledon on grass.
The protégé of Goran Ivanisevic has achieved his 21st Grand Slam, closing the distance between him and Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings.
