"Novak Djokovic's popularity rating is low," said top coach

In a recent interview, Gunter Bresnik expressed some interesting considerations about Novak Djokovic. Bresnik explained: "The 2022 season was undoubtedly conditioned by the repeated absences of Novak Djokovic, who had to miss two Grand Slams and all the American Masters 1000.

I don't want to create controversy and debate whether it was right or not. Nole sacrificed several tournaments in order to remain faithful to his principles, he has to be acknowledged. We know he wants to become the greatest of all time, he has never denied it.

He is already one of the best ever and his mental strength is insane. It must be said that His popularity rating has dropped further due to last year's events, but he's doing everything he can to change that." Despite the difficulties encountered in 2022, Nole still managed to win five titles.

In addition to winning his seventh Wimbledon, he also won the ATP Finals in Turin, Rome, Astana and Tel Aviv. Djokovic is the most awaited man at the Australian Open 2023. The Serbian champion has put behind him the bad issue of last year, which had even led to his expulsion from the country.

The former world number 1 wants to take revenge and win his tenth title at Melbourne Park, which would allow him to reach 22 Grand Slams, equaling his eternal rival Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings. Nole's season has started in the best possible way, as evidenced by his victory in Adelaide last week.

The 35-year-old from Belgrade seemed to be in great shape, even if he accused a small problem with his left hamstring. Nole had his first round match against Roberto Carballes and doesn't seem to have an impossible draw until the quarterfinals.

Recall that Novak hasn't lost in Australia even since 2018, a fact that says a lot about his feeling with this tournament.
