When you think that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal had an inimitable comeback, then you are struck again bu Novak Djokovic.
The Serbian has impressed the tennis world and beyond after staging an amazing comeback coming almost from nowhere. In fact, the Serbian legend looked almost done with tennis in the first part of this season after he had an elbow surgery. Furthermore, Nole looked unable to find his grit on court and after losing a horrible quarterfinal at the French Open against Marco Cecchinato he even questioned his grass court season.
Eventually, Djokovic staged an impossible comeback to win Wimbledon, Cincinnati, the US Open, and Shanghai before ending the season as the world no.1
What was Djokovic’s problem and why he is a champion. MORATOGLOU
During a recent interview with L’Equipe, Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena Williams’ coach, explained what happened to Nole
“We found the same Novak, like if he came back after a two-year break where he was elsewhere.
We found him intact. Like before. He was extremely dominant, he is again. It confirms the impression we had at the time: his fall was essentially mental.
On the court he was not himself, anger lacked, you could not recognize him. Since everything was there again, it does not surprise that he came back so quickly. It’s a story of personality, he is a great champion.”
