2010 Roland Garros, Paris After defeating Robby Ginepri, Kei Nishikori, Victor Hanescu, and Evgenij Korolev, third-seeded Novak Djokovic is going to take on 22nd-seeded Jurgen Melzer. With a score of 6-3 6-2, “Nole” easily takes the first two sets.
For the first time in his career, the Austrian enters the final four of a Grand Slam tournament after fighting, bouncing back, and winning in the third set. After leading by two sets, Djokovic only suffered one defeat.
The Austrian was no longer able to go to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament after pulling off that amazing achievement. Jurgen, who is now ranked eighth in the world in singles, also has two Grand Slam titles and 17 medals in the doubles category.
Melzer reflected on his victory with Djokovic 10 years ago in an interview that was also published by Sportskeeda, saying, “Maybe that was my biggest individual success, but I also have other pleasant memories of victories against Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andre Agassi.
In a few of my successful matches, I’ve managed to defeat the stronger opponents. I can’t regret it because of that. It was a privilege to play in such a fantastic era, the former top 10 player concluded. Early in my career, I also had the good fortune to compete against athletes like Agassi and Tim Henman.
It was a time when there were top-notch rivals. From this perspective, even my single year of birth is remarkable: I don’t know how many top 10s were born in 1981! The names Hewitt, Federer, Davydenko, and Lopez are just a few that immediately come to mind.
I additionally competed against Nalbandian and Coria in the junior circuit. Finally, I can declare that I entered the top ten players in the world, the Viennese said in his closing statement. I will undoubtedly be able to look back on this with pride for the rest of my life.
Rafa Nadal defeated Melzer in three sets in the semi-finals of the 2010 Roland Garros tournament.
A legend is Nole Djokovic.
The CEO of the news website The Babylon Bee, Seth Dillon, is the most recent to speak out in favor of Novak Djokovic.
He stated that there is no justification for a suspension this time around as the 21-time Grand Slam champion was permitted to compete last year without receiving the immunization. “Djokovic participated in the 2021 U.S. Open last year. In the finals, Medvedev defeated him. He was not immunized. Why, in the name of all-powerful science, is he unable to perform this year? Tweets from Dillon.
