“Novak Djokovic is one of the fittest people on the planet,” says the analyst

Novak Djokovic had to miss two Grand Slam tournaments in 2022: the Australian Open and the US Open. The Serbian champions chose not to be vaccinated and after the case broke out in Australia, announced his retirement ahead of the men’s draw for the final major of the year.

The rules for entering the United States have not changed, and people from other countries still need to show they have completed their vaccination course in order to enter the country. Considering his past successes on concrete, Djokovic would have gone into the Australian Open and US Open as a favorite and the two Majors he hasn’t competed in this year could mean the difference in the battle for Slam dominance between the pair.

Big 3. Mats Wilander gave his harsh take on the GOAT title race in front of the Eurosport mics. “With everything that’s going on with Novak, I think the battle over who’s the best between him, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer becomes irrelevant.

Since Nole can’t play…” explained the former Swedish champion. “I think going forward we’re just going to talk about the size of the big three and how special it was to see them play at the same time. We will all remember this one thing.”

Nadal, the number two seed, then has a great opportunity to extend his lead over Djokovic and hit 23 slams. The Mallorcan is having one of his best seasons despite various injuries and has yet to lose a match at Slam level.

After winning the Australian Open and Roland Garros, Nadal retired ahead of the semi-final against Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon due to stomach problems. At least on paper, Nadal’s opponent will be Daniil Medvedev. The Russian stopped Djokovic from finishing the Grand Slam at Flushing Meadows last year.

Djokovic had to miss two Grand Slams

The conclusion to Novak Djokovic’s US Open saga has been called “embarrassing” and “ridiculous” by leading Australian journalist and sports presenter Ben Fordham.

According to him, the Serbian player only wanted to play tennis and his ban on entering the United States defied logic. “It’s embarrassing and defies logic and science,” Fordham said. “He’s one of the fittest people on the planet.

He doesn’t drink, he travels with his personal doctor and nutritionist. He’s already recovered from COVID-19.”
