Novak Djokovic: "Preparations for 2022 have already begun"
Novak Djokovic has experienced yet another great season of his career.
The Serbian champion started 2021 in Australia and, after being eliminated on the occasion of the ATP Cup, he became the protagonist of a fantastic ride in Melbourne. Despite the physical problems encountered in the match against Taylor Fritz in the third round, Djokovic found a way to recover and win the final by overcoming opponents of the caliber of Milos Raonic, Alexander Zverev and Aslan Karatsev in tough matches.
In the final act of the Australian Open, the Belgrade then clearly defeated Daniil Medvedev and took home the tournament for the ninth time; no one has done better than him. Djokovic then skipped the Masters 1000 in Miami to recharge his batteries and prepare the season on clay in the best possible way, where he reached the final at the Italian Open and won the ATP 250 tournament in Belgrade 2, before showing up in Paris.
At the Roland Garros, Djokovic became the first player in the Open Era to win all Majors at least twice. Impossible to forget the epic battle that allowed him to beat Rafael Nadal in the semifinals. The Serbian then leveled the score with Roger Federer and Nadal at Wimbledon.
In fact, on the lawns of the All England Club he won his twentieth Grand Slam by dominating his opponents and imposing the law of the strongest. The two defeats suffered at the Tokyo Olympics and at the US Open cannot in any way obscure an out of the ordinary 2021.
In the first case it was Zverev who beat him in the semifinals; in the second, Medvedev took care of extinguishing the Grand Slam dream. Djokovic was only one step away from history, but was unable to handle the pressure in the last act of the New York Grand Slam.
Australia will again kick off the new tennis season and there are still many doubts related to Djokovic's presence. Only vaccinated players will be able to compete in Melbourne and there is still no definite information on the choice made by the 20-time Grand Slam champion.
Djokovic has decided not to talk about the matter publicly, but for the moment he is enrolled in both the ATP Cup and the Australian Open. The tennis player born in 1987 has already started training in his Belgrade in view of the next season and in some statements released to the local media during the Euroleague match between Red Star and Barcelona he explained: "The preparations for 2022 have already begun and are proceeding great." Words that spark great hope in the hearts of all his fans.
