Top coach: “The question is how much Novak Djokovic…

Novak Djokovic‘s 2022 was affected by his decision to forego the coronavirus vaccination. The Australian Open and US Open, where he would have been the overwhelming favorite to win, had to be skipped by the Serbian.

Along with suffering significant harm to his reputation, Rafael Nadal, Nole‘s enduring nemesis, left the all-time Grand Slam rankings. The 35-year-old Belgrade native improved his season by winning Wimbledon for the seventh time overall and fourth time in a row.

As a result, the former world number one has closed the distance between himself and Rafael Nadal and equaled his idol, Pete Sampras. The “Djoker” won the ATP tournaments in Tel Aviv and Astana, earning a ticket to the Turin ATP Finals.

The 90 career championships won by the 21-time Grand Slam champion are 13 fewer than those of Roger Federer (it would take 20 to overtake Connors). Goran Ivanisevic conducted a thorough analysis of Djokovic‘s possibilities in a conversation with “Jutarnji list.”

Ivanisevic starts off Djokovic.

Now, Novak Djokovic‘s coach has expressed his opinion that the world No. 7 might shatter the record for most titles won, though he has also admitted that it would depend on how long the Serb would play given his recent problems to contend in America and Australia.

According to Ivanisevic, “Novak is interested in anything related to some form of records.” “How much and how long he will play is still up in the air, but given the situation he is in right now, I’m confident he could attack or have an impact on those records as well.”

The former world No. 1 was unsure of how much his protégé would play, but he was confident in Djokovic‘s ability to maintain his fitness. He was always physically fit, so that was never an issue, and if he keeps it up, Ivanisevic continued, “He may stay at the top or near the top for another three years and battle for all the titles.”

The World No. 7 could improve with age, according to Mischa Zverev, who praises Djokovic for his ability to enter matches with confidence no matter how long he has been away from the game. This suggests that Djokovic has a very long career ahead of him.

“That is rather powerful, in my opinion. Novak returns, wins two competitions, and that’s it “said Mischa Zverev. “Despite the fact that he had only one break and was uninjured, he enters the game with a lot of confidence and plays it down. He’ll undoubtedly improve further. At 35, it’s especially impressive.”
