‘Novak Djokovic is putting himself in the shoes of…’, says ATP ace

2022 was a year full of emotions and twists. Despite various problems, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal shared the first three Slams of the season. The Serb had to miss the Australian Open and the US Open due to his vaccination status, but turned his year around by triumphing at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career (the fourth in a row).

The Spaniard also had several injuries this year, but still managed to win the Australian Open and Roland Garros. An abdominal tear affected his performance at Wimbledon and the US Open, preventing him from pursuing his 23rd Slam.

2022 will also be remembered as the year of Roger Federer’s retirement. The 41-year-old from Basel said goodbye to tennis at the Laver Cup, held at the O2 Arena in London from September 23 to 25. The King did his best to make one last tour, but the poor condition of his right knee made him give it up.

In a recent interview with “SportKlub”, Aljaz Bedene addressed the subject of the greatest in history. “It is undeniable that Roger Federer has had the greatest impact in the world of tennis in living memory,” Bedene began.

“If we analyze the results and the statistics, the GOAT is without a doubt Novak Djokovic. I am convinced that the Serb will end up with the most Slams once all three have retired. He will also hold the Masters 1000 record and could break Jimmy Connors’ record for titles.

I have faced all three many times and Djokovic is the closest to perfection,” added Aljaz.

Djokovic will play Paris-Bercy and the ATP Finals

Argentine tennis veteran Facundo Bagnis recently expressed his gratitude to former World No.

1 Novak Djokovic. “I am grateful for what Djokovic did. Players have to have a kind of union in charge of talking to the ATP. The federation that Djokovic created is still in force, work is being done because it is new, it is something that is scary and still does not have much strength.

But I saw him super involved in the tournament in Rome, in a meeting for two and a half hours, which was not mandatory and he was playing the next day. People don’t have the chance to see that, but I do and I take my hat off,” he stated.

“Yes, without a doubt.He is putting himself in the shoes of the players who have economic limitations and who may be more relegated. Then he has a lot of mistakes and maybe he is not the most favorite of the public, but I am not a fan, I am part of the circuit and I am very grateful to him,” Bagnis said.
