'Novak Djokovic says what he feels', says ATP ace

“Novak Djokovic says what he feels,” says ATP ace

Everything is almost ready for the Montreal Masters 1000, the first of the three major events of this part of the 2022 season in North America, which will be a special protagonist of the tournaments on concrete in which the best tennis players in the world will take part.

It will be the first really important test for athletes who want to prepare as well as possible for the US Open, the last Grand Slam of the year. There are 1,000 points at stake for the winner, with many aiming for the trophy to climb up the ATP rankings and get closer to the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin.

Given the absence of the Big Three, there are plenty of options for the players: Roger Federer is still in the box; Serbian Novak Djokovic has been forced to resign due to Canada’s current anti-Covid regulations; and Rafael Nadal recently pulled out due to sudden physical ailments (click here to read more), preferring the cautious path.

The seedings have been updated in this way ahead of the official draw for the Canadian competition which is scheduled for Friday 5th August from 4pm. The number one favorite remains Russian Daniil Medvedev, who, like him, has to defend all points and is the title holder.

The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz is also in second place and thus at the bottom of the ranking list.

Nole thanked his fans

In an episode of tennis podcast 3iguales, Francisco Cerundolo said that Novak Djokovic should be commended for being “authentic”. “I do not understand [Novak] Djokovic as a villain.

But on the contrary. What happens is that people are very much in love [Roger] Federer and [Rafael] Nadal. Novak says what he feels, it’s authentic,” said Cerundolo. Djokovic is fighting for the most Grand Slam titles in men’s singles with Federer and Nadal, and Cerundolo believes the 21-time Major winner will end up surpassing both.

“Certainly Novak will pass both of the Grand Slams he has won. Djokovic is the one who moves the most to help the players who earn the least. To those who play Futures or Challenger,” Cerundolo said. Everything currently indicates that Novak Djokovic will be denied entry to the United States of America and will therefore miss the US Open.

“I just wanted to take a moment and tell you all how grateful I am to see so many messages of support and love from around the world these days. I wasn’t expecting it, and that’s why it feels so overwhelming. I just wanted to say thank you.”
