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.

Novak Djokovic as the world’s greatest tennis player (Part 1)

Growing up under war bombs, the world’s No. 1 player Novak Djokovic is also a loving-hearted and full of generosity.

Break Federer’s record

After the 8th Australian Open championship and the 17th Grand Slam title in his career, Novak Djokovic regained the No. 1 position on the ATP rankings from Rafael Nadal. In addition, the Serbian tennis player is only 3 Grand Slam titles lower than Roger Federer.

Second is none other than the king of Nadal clay court with 19 titles. Nadal will most likely catch Federer at the French Open, the tournament he has won 12 championship titles. However, at the present time, Djokovic is the name most talked about.

At the age of 32, Djokovic is the youngest member of the Big Three and in particular, he has won a total of 13 recent Grand Slam titles since the US Open 2016.

In theory, Federer can play until 2021 and longer as long as he still has the motivation and desire to win. But at this age, with both form and fitness going down, it’s hard for the Swiss to win the championship again at the Grand Slam.

However, as long as he does not give up, Federer is still trying to improve his achievements to create a safe distance with Nadal and Djokovic. Wimbledon will be the best opportunity for Federer to win the 21st Grand Slam title because here, he has got 8 titles in his career and one of them is 2017, when he was 35 years old.

Statistics show that, since 2014, Federer and Djokovic have met 18 times but Federer only won 6 times. Of these 6 victories, there was no match in the Grand Slam. Exactly the last time Federer won the Serbian racquet at a Grand Slam was the Wimbledon semifinal in 2012.

Federer also only won Djokovic once in the Grand Slam final, at the US Open 2007, while Djokovic won in the last 4 finals against the Swiss racket since 2014. So, even if Federer extends the After one year, two years or many years, it is very difficult for him to win Djokovic in the 5-set format.
