Gilles Simon Explains Why Many Players Use A Wrong Tactics Against Novak Djokovic

Gilles Simon explains why many players use incorrect tactics against Novak Djokovic


In the latest edition of the Court No. 1 podcast at RMC, gil simon said that many players are not adopting the correct tactic against Novak Djokovic. The former French tennis player explained: «What I don’t understand when I watch Novak Djokovic’s matches is why his opponents don’t insist on his weaknesses.

The Serbian is not that strong near the net and almost always gets into trouble when he has to shoot. He sometimes misses it, while other times he hits it at two an hour. We had 20 years to realize this! I watched the match between Djokovic and Tsitsipas in Bercy, where it was a couple of points that made the difference.

If the Greek had played the decisive points differently, he might have won. If you force your opponent to play in areas of the pitch that he doesn’t like, he will make more mistakes and lose confidence even in his strong areas.

I’m surprised you can get your tactics wrong against players you’ve seen play a million times!»

Novak Djokovic’s season

Novak Djokovic enriched his season by winning the ATP Finals for the sixth time.

As well as having equaled Roger Federer’s record, the Serbian phenom has shown that he is still the man to beat. This year, the former world number 1 paid dearly for his decision not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, since he had to miss the Australian Open and the US Open.

The bad Australian soap opera also caused serious damage to his image, destabilizing him greatly from a mental point of view. He only saw the real Nole at Wimbledon, where he triumphed for the fourth time in a row (his seventh).

The 35-year-old from Belgrade thus equaled his idol Pete Sampras and climbed to 21 Grand Slams, just one length behind Rafael Nadal’s all-time record. Djokovic will attempt the hook already at the 2023 Australian Open, where he will go on the hunt for his tenth title.
