The tennis season has officially kicked off, the first matches of the United Tennis Cup took place in Australia, but among top tennis players the focus is not entirely on our beloved sport. A few days ago, one of the greatest feats in history took place, the one achieved in the NBA by the Slovenian basketball player, the champion Luka Doncic.
The 22-year-old talent from the Dallas Mavericks is one of the most popular athletes in American basketball and Luka is thought by many to be the strongest basketball player in the world. Doncic was the protagonist with a legendary performance, one of those destined to remain in NBA history.
Dallas beat New York just in overtime to complete a crazy comeback. Great merit of this victory was carried out by Doncic with a triple double never occurred in history. Doncic was the first to sign 60 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists, a mark that leaves everyone speechless.
Doncic’s record has drawn applause throughout the world of sports and tennis has not remained indifferent either. The first to praise Luka’s fantastic performance was Italian tennis player Matteo Berrettini. A huge fan of the NBA, Berrettini, who is trying to get him back to his best form, posted an Instagram Stories to praise Luka and underline his incredible show of force.
The former number one in the world, the Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, also expressed himself in his language to praise Luka’s performance, with an Instagram Stories, a performance destined to become legendary.
Nole applauded Luka’s performance, one of those feats that remain in sports history. Meanwhile, both Matteo Berrettini and Novak Djokovic are in Australia and are preparing for the first big event of the year, the Australian Open on Australian hard courts.
Daniil Medvedev could face Djokovic
In his pre-tournament presser, Medvedev pointed out that he had a great rivalry with Novak Djokovic and was motivated to face him in South Australia. “I don’t know. I like to play Novak because yeah, I feel like we have a lot of matches.
We had some really great matches with a great level of tennis. At the same time, what motivates me is to be in the semis, and if it’s Novak there, it’s great. If it’s somebody else who beats him, I don’t care much; that’s also great.
It means that somebody is in great shape, and managed to probably beat the best player in the world right now,” said the Russian.
