Many times, Mats Wilander predicted the defeat of Novak Djokovic in big matches, so it seems unnatural to the fans of the Serbian ace when the seven-time Grand Slam champion praises him. Mats Wilander turned the plate, more and more often there are only words of praise for the world number one, and that was the case even after the victory over Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros.
"Novak's return was solid, he returned aggressively to the field. I think it was an impressive release of Novak throughout the match. And he didn't leave any of his service games to the rival ", Mats Wilander started his presentation.
Novak Djokovic erupted like a volcano after he confirmed his placement in the semifinals, he did not try to hide his emotions after a three-and-a-half-hour fight. "The emotion shown in the end is exactly what tennis players keep to themselves all the time.
That is why I am impressed and proud to be a part of tennis because these players are going through very difficult times." "You can see through Novak's actions how everyone feels. It is difficult to be a professional tennis player during a pandemic.
Tsitsipas and Zverev
The Swede, like all tennis fans, is overjoyed that Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will meet in the semifinals. A tennis classic for the 58th time, the longest rivalry and a match to be desired, but Wilander warns that it will not be easy for the winner of that duel in the final.
"When you look at the skeleton at Roland Garros, this is a dream scenario. Regardless of who comes out as the winner of the duel between Rafa and Novak, it will be very difficult for them against Zverev or Tsitsipas in the final."
"The two of them have a great chance to win their first Grand Slam ", Mats Wilander concluded. And it is really interesting that some new names are finally coming that will dethrone the famous trio. However, the trio is so dominant that many years earlier a tennis player who would be more dominant than them should have appeared.
However, even now it is not too late for that. Zverev and Tsitsipas are really phenomenal tennis players and it will be very interesting to see if they can reach the trophy they are eagerly awaiting. The task will not be easy at all, but given the form of these two players could finally watch some new finals
