Mats Wilander, a guest at the Diriyah Cup, wanted to analyze the situation in the upcoming Australian Open. The former world number one sees Novak Djokovic as the man to beat, but is wary of the Serb’s desire to overdo it.
The words of Mats and Davydenko
Djokovic, despite missing in two Grand Slam rounds (Australian Open and US Open) and at all Master 1000 Americans, they managed to close the year at top 5. The great result came thanks to the successes at Wimbledon, Internazionale d’Italia and the ATP Finals (plus seals at the Atp500 in Astana and the Atp250 in Tel Aviv).
In recent weeks, his participation in the first Grand Slam of the year has been made official, given the cancellation ban Three years old from Australian territory. Knoll, once again, would start as a batsman Majors Which saw him emerge victorious most of the time.
Wilander, the exceptional guest at the last Diriyah Cup held in Saudi Arabia, commented on the chances of winning the Grand Slam tournament 21 times.
“I see that Novak Djokovic is the biggest candidate to win the 2023 Australian Open. Behind him we find Daniil Medvedev, who plays his best tennis on hard courts, and defends champion Rafael Nadal.
The only thing that can betray Djokovic is his desire to overdo it, shock the world and prove something after what he suffered at the beginning of this year. For the rest, it goes without saying that this tournament is his home“.
In addition to the Swede, Nikolay Davydenko also wanted to express his opinion on the Serbian season in an exclusive interview with Championat.
“Novak Djokovic’s season was conditioned on his choosing not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
He had to give up the Australian Open and the US Open, as well as missed the entire US Masters 1000. Djokovic’s best wasn’t seen at Roland Garros, while the player we all know is back at Wimbledon.
The seventh title in London gave him confidence, and in the second part of the season he was unstoppable. There are no other adjectives to describe its greatness. If he had also played in Melbourne and New York, he probably would have finished 2022 at the top of the ATP rankings.“.
