Frenchman Gilles Simon spoke on a Twitch channel talking about Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Simon spoke in a Twitch chat with fellow countryman Gael Monfils, commenting on recent performances by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Many have criticized the usual statements by the two in reference to the physical problems of Nole and his team, who had even declared that the tennis player had won the tournament with significant physical problems. Simon was clear and expressed the following: “I reached the third round and the round of 16 with significant physical problems, in Australia I reached the third round and came out on crutches.
I think that despite everything he had reached my level. Rafa and Novak are Grand Slam champions and can win even if they are 70%. They are so superior now that they can win despite the injuries.»
Djokovic faced his 2023 in the best possible way
2023 has so far been a very important year for the world of tennis.
At the Australian Open we saw the return to Melbourne and the umpteenth victory of his career for Novak Djokovic. The Serbian champion, at 35, has beaten anyone in his path, leaving crumbs for his opponents. A clear confrontation also stood out in the final where Nole defeated the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets, a match without history.
Once again Nole has shown his excessive power and the last 5 Grand Slams have always been won by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal with the sole exception of the young Carlos Alcaraz at the 2022 US Open. On this occasion, however, the Serbian tennis player was absent due to Covid restrictions while Rafa dealt with obvious physical issues.
Years go by, but nothing seems to change on the Tour and, without the now retired Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal dominate the most important tournaments and on all surfaces. Let’s remember that, at least until now, Djokovic can play the Indian Wells and the Miami Open ATP Masters 1000, but he will play the US Open 2023, after last season abn.
