Stéphane Robert, a coach for Novak Djokovic, examined his relationship with the Belgrade champion in a lengthy interview that was made public. Roberto remarked: “Novak Djokovic isn’t really my boss, though.
We exchange opinions, give helpful counsel to me and the players, and we see how our children develop. I don’t have that kind of relationship with him. Everything is really easy and plain; nothing is difficult.”
Patrick Mouratoglou assessed Djokovic‘s chances in a video he shared on Instagram: “As he has played few games this year, Novak needs to pick up the pace and confidence in this final stretch of the season if he is to achieve his major objective of passing Rafa.
He may not have many chances because it is highly unlikely that Nadal would play in the 2023 US Open and Australian Open.”
Season of Novak
Despite missing two Grand Slam events, Novak Djokovic can still be happy with his season.
The Serbian sensation lost both the Australian Open and the US Open as a result of his decision to forgo the coronavirus vaccination. The 35-year-old Belgrade resident got caught in the center of the storm and had his reputation severely harmed.
The former world number one made amends for his Roland Garros setback by winning Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career (the fourth in a row). In addition to matching his idol Pete Sampras, Nole has closed the distance between him and Rafael Nadal in the Majors’ all-time rankings.
Additionally, the player for Goran Ivanisevic imposed himself in Tel Aviv and Astana, severing the ticket for the ATP Finals in Turin. The 21-time Grand Slam champion wants to have a strong season’s end before turning his attention to 2023. Whether Djokovic will be able to visit Australia in January is still up in the air.
