Rafael Nadal is outdone by Novak Djokovic in terms of his support of tennis players.

Damir Dzumhur claims he prefers Novak Djokovic to Rafael Nadal because he believes the Serb is contributing more to tennis than the Spaniard. Dzumhur was asked to choose between Djokovic and Nadal in a conversation with Bosnian telecom provider Mtel.

“First of all, I get along with Djokovic perfectly and amicably. He puts more effort into helping other players, for a better ATP Tour, for better conditions for all players – not just for the top-100, but for those who are the top-200, top-300, and top-400. In my opinion, he helps players far more than other players, not just those from the former Yugoslavia, but tennis in general.

I believe Nadal has never truly demonstrated it during his career “During their talk, Dzumhur added.

The Australian Open, according to Dzumhur, would have gone to Djokovic.

Dzumhur shared his thoughts following Nadal‘s stunning comeback triumph over Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final at Melbourne Park.

Due to his immunisation status, Djokovic, a record nine-time Australian Open champion, was not permitted to participate in the tournament. Dzumhur didn’t seem very enthused by Nadal‘s victory at Melbourne Park as a result.

“A Grand Slam can be won without Novak Djokovic taking part. Djoker is still the GOAT “A short time after Nadal‘s victory at the Australian Open, Dzumhur stated in an Instagram Story. Djokovic was not allowed to compete at the US Open after being excluded from the Australian Open.

But this time was different since Nadal lost the competition. Djokovic hopes to be permitted to compete at the Australian Open in January after missing the US Open. The three-year entry ban on Djokovic is about to be overturned, according to Australian media last week. If that were to become law, it would allow Djokovic to visit Melbourne Park once more in January.
