Novak Djokovic as the world’s greatest tennis player (Part 2)

In Beijing 2008, Nole only won the bronze medal; In London 2012, he even lost to Del Potro himself in the third match. Will Djokovic’s desire to win the Olympic gold medal come true in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics?

The Serbian first won the Grand Slam in 2008 at the Australian Open; 15 Grand Slam in the period of 2011-2019, before winning the Australian Open 2020.

The important thing for Djokovic is that he knows how to compensate for his limitations, including the fitness problem at the age of 32. Before Dominic Thiem possesses a prolific physical foundation, Djokovic shows his hard work and patience. to fix mistakes.

It was his remarkable composure that helped him gradually dominate Dominic Thiem, earn important points, opening a turning point in hinge games on the way to the final victory.

Winning the Australian Open 2020 is not a devastating Djokovic of previous years, but instead a brave and cold Nole at important moments. It became Djokovic’s heavy, high-damage weapon at the moment, whether his opponent is Nadal, experienced Federer in the Big Three, or young players like Thiem , Zverev, Tsitsipas, Medvedev.

After the Australian Open 2020 championship, Djokovic had 276 weeks at the top of ATP, with 9,720 points. If he maintains the top of the table until October 5 this year, he will break Roger Federer’s 310-week number one in the world. Djokovic first reached number one in the world at the age of 24, on July 4, 2011. He stayed there for 53 consecutive weeks, until July 8, 2012.

The great athlete has three more periods of keeping the ATP score, including 48 weeks from November 5, 2012 to October 6, 2013, 122 weeks from July 7, 2014 to November 6, 2016 and 52 weeks from 11/5/2018 to November 3, 2019. “It is one of my two biggest goals, certainly so,” Djokovic said.

The remaining goal, as the Serbian tennis player mentioned is to surpass Federer’s 20 Grand Slam record.
