Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal switched from rivals to teammates at last weekend’s Laver Cup. “Everyone is my rival. Whoever I play against on the pitch is my rival and I want to win against him.

1 and US Open Champion, calling him “the leader of this younger generation”. “You obviously have Alcaraz, the new world No. 1 and a Grand Slam winner. He is the leader of this younger generation. And you have Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Zverev, Rublev, these guys who are already established.” at the top of the men’s game for a while,” Djokovic said in the same context.

The former world No. 1 is currently in Israel to compete in the Tel Aviv Watergen Open. Yesterday he had a comfortable straight set win over Vasek Pospisil in the quarterfinals to move into the last four of the tournament.

However, when the score was 5:3 in the second set, an unusual situation arose. He said: “It was a great, positive win… I think the level of tennis was really high. Especially towards the end of the first set and the second set. Credit to him for the fight. Great to see him again.”
