Many have suggested that Serbian star Novak Djokovic exaggerated his injury, while others, including Australian Grand Slam director Craig Tiley, have defended him by claiming he competed with a three-centimeter hamstring tear.
According to the latest reports, “Nole” trained without any special problems. There is no trace of any kind of bandage, proof that the injury is over. Most likely, the truth will come to light through the mouth of the person affected, who also confirmed that he will play the ATP 500 in Doha next week.
The world number one, who on Monday equaled Steffi Graf in the historical ranking of tennis players with the most weeks at the top of the ranking, awaits the decision on whether or not to enter the United States to play the American 1000 Indian Wells – Miami tournaments , which will be held in March in Florida and California.
The 22-time Grand Slam champion is duly registered, but the US government has yet to rule on the law, which currently does not allow unvaccinated people to enter the country. Novak Djokovic this week equaled Steffi Graf’s record as tennis number 1 for the longest time in tennis history.
“Thank you for the congratulations, I am extremely proud to have broken another record, this time Steffi Graf’s. I have [dedicated] everything in my life to this sport, I am lucky to have a great team of people around me and the unconditional support of my family on this journey,” he said.
“I always try to remember where I started from and what it has taken everything to get here,” Djokovic said. “At this stage of my career, I feel like I have to push myself even harder in every way to keep up with the young hopefuls.” More and more records for the Serbian legend, who continues to raise the bar even higher in everything he has achieved so far.
This year, which is barely in its second month, she has already won her 22nd Grand Slam and returned to world number one to equal this historic mark.
Djokovic reflects on his attitude
Novak Djokovic can relate to basketball legend LeBron James’ mentality of being the best player ever.
“Yes, I can relate to that because I believe that what worked for me and still works for me is that self-belief and confidence level,” Djokovic told The National on the sidelines of the Dubai Tennis Championships. “And I don’t think there’s anything arrogant or pretentious about it, as long as its balanced with respect towards the opponent.
I’ve tried throughout my life to always greet and treat every rival with respect,” the Serbian superstar added.
