Novak Djokovic Addresses Suggestions That Carlos Alcaraz Is Undeservedly No 1

Novak Djokovic responds to suggestions that Carlos Alcaraz is undeservedly number 1


Novak Djokovic underlined that Carlos Alcaraz deserves to be ranked No. 1, adding that the 19-year-old is a very positive thing for tennis. Djokovic, who holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at No. 1, is currently ranked No. 8 in the world.

This year, Djokovic was denied participation in the Australian Open and the US Open, causing him to lose a large number of points. Djokovic was allowed to compete at Wimbledon; there he successfully defended his title, but still lost 2,000 points after the ATP sanctioned Wimbledon taking points from this year’s tournament.

Now, Alcaraz is the youngest No. 1 in tennis history and will also become the youngest year-end finisher in tennis history. Because Djokovic was not allowed to play two Grand Slams this year and because he lost 2,000 points at Wimbledon even though he won the tournament, some think Alcaraz is number 1 more by circumstance.

Djokovic on Alcaraz as number 1: He has deserved it

“He deserves it, there is no question about it. I don’t want to get into the discussion of whether I play less or more, whatever. It is what it is. The reality is that he is number 1. He deserves to be there.

He won a coup. He won many matches in tournaments. He is, I think, a great new face and player for our sport. He is a very nice guy. He works very hard. He has a good team of people around him. He represents himself and tennis in a good way.

I can only find positive things to say about him,» Djokovic was quoted as saying by Tennis Majors. Meanwhile, Djokovic received good news from Australia. This week, the Australian government rescinded Djokovic’s three-year entry ban into the country.

On Wednesday, Djokovic confirmed to reporters that those reports are correct and that he will start his 2023 season in Australia.
