In an interview with Eurosport, Justine Henin analyzed in detail the situation of Novak Djokovic, who has just announced that he will not participate in the two ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami. Henin said: “There is no doubt that Novak Djokovic is going through a difficult time.
In difficult times, you are often forced to make important decisions. Nolé is no exception to this rule. I think the Serb got a bit stuck after the loss to Alexander Zverev at the Tokyo Olympics. Djokovic’s confidence has cracked since that day, if you know what I mean.
Recently, we learned that his long-time coach Marian Vajda was not in favor of his participation in the Games. This separation will certainly have an impact on Novak in the months to come.” The Belgrader was to witness the triumph of his eternal rival Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open.
The Spaniard, who has passed Federer and Djokovic in the all-time Grand Slam standings, will try to stretch further at Roland Garros.
Djokovic is going through a problematic moment
Novak Djokovic is encountering a lot of difficulties at the start of the season.
The Serbian phenom has only played one tournament so far, having been unable to defend the title at the Australian Open due to the well-known events. His run in Dubai has already been cut short in the quarter-finals by the hand of resurrected Jiri Vesely, able to exploit the 20-time Grand Slam champion’s negative day.
Due to the vaccination problem, the 34-year-old Belgrader will not be able to participate in the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami. As if that weren’t enough, Daniil Medvedev overtook him at the top of the ATP rankings, becoming the 27th No. 1 in men’s tennis history.
On the other hand, good news has come from France, where the Green Pass will soon be abolished. This should allow Nole to compete in the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo and especially Roland Garros. A few days ago, Djokovic and Marian Vajda announced that they had ended their glorious collaboration. Under the guidance of the Slovak coach, Novak won the 20 major tournaments that embellish his showcase.
