The 2021 season will undoubtedly be decisive for the fight for the Grand Slam primacy, which currently sees Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal tied with 20 titles in total. World number one Novak Djokovic is now standing at 17 Slams, with the possibility, however, of equaling, and why not, even surpassing, his great opponents next year.
Nole won her latest Major trophy last February, when she triumphed for the eighth time in Melbourne, all-time record, defeating Austrian Dominic Thiem in the final. At the London Finals he lost in the semifinals to Thiem himself, seeing his last chance to return to lift the Masters' Cup fade before the competition moves to Turin.
Djokovic moves to Spain
Nole lived her youth and adolescence in Serbia, more precisely in the capital Belgrade. Having become a professional tennis player in 2003, he moved to Monte-Carlo, Principality of Monaco, in 2005 at the age of 18.
Djokovic motivated his choice by talking about the growing popularity of which he was now the object in his own country, which had become so strong as to oppress him. In Monaco, on the other hand, the Serbian enjoyed the opportunity to always train away from the fans and to have, needless to hide, also exemption from taxes.
Monte Carlo is also one of the main official residences of sportsmen and VIPs in general, including our Jannik Sinner. In any case, the Belgrade champion has decided to move now to Marbella, Spain, in the house he rented and where he spent the lockdown period with his family in the previous months, recently purchased at the incredible price of ten.
million euros. The luxury home, located in one of the most prominent neighborhoods of the Iberian city, has something like nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There is also a huge courtyard that overlooks the sea, without considering other features such as the gym, the tennis court, the swimming pool and a beautiful spa area, which includes, among other things, the Turkish bath and sauna.
Novak Djokovic, with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep and all the others greatests tennis stars on the planet will come back for the upcoming Australian Open 2021, which will be held in Melbourne from 8 February: it will be the most awaited sports event of the first part of the new season.
It will be a very spectacualr season, and all of us hope without the problems of the last one, with some presence of the crowd in the courts across the world.
