Martina Navratilova said she was against Novak Djokovic regarding the PTPA. In a recent interview she said: “He is convinced he did the right thing. I disagree with Nole on this, but he is free to do as he wants. I believe that this initiative did not help tennis.
I think she should take a step back and put his energy into something that really helps our sport. ” Barring last minute changes, Novak will be forced to give up the US Open. he same Serian champion, after the Wimbledon win, explained: “I would never go to a country without having the necessary documents to enter.
If I get the authorization to enter the USA, I will go there with pleasure, otherwise it will not be the end of the world. I still feel young, so I have many possibilities ahead of me.”
Novak Djokovic’s PTPA and last months
Novak Djokovic has been working hard both on and off the pitch in recent years.
The Serbian phenomenon came close to the ‘Calendar Grand Slam’ in 2021, but his dream was broken one step away from the finish line. After clinching the first three majors of the season, the former ATP number 1 had to bow to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final.
2022 did not start well for the 35-year-old from Belgrade, who paid dearly for his choice not to get vaccinated against Coronavirus. In addition to not being able to defend the title at the Australian Open, Nole also had to miss the American Masters 1000 (Indian Wells and Miami) and suffered serious damage to his image.
Djokovic disappointed expectations at Roland Garros, but quickly redeemed themselves at Wimbledon. Despite having left many sets on the road during the tournament, Novak managed to clinch his seventh title at Church Road. He thus hoisted himself to 21 Grand Slams, just one length away from his eternal rival Rafael Nadal.
During the period of the pandemic, Djokovic founded the PTPA together with his friend and colleague Vasek Pospisil. An initiative that caused a lot of discussion.
