Rising Serbian star Miomir Kecmanovic admitted to feeling a bit nervous in his first practice sessions with his compatriot Novak Djokovic and Switzerland’s Roger Federer. However, Kecmanovic quickly went from nervous to relaxed after realizing that Djokovic and Federer were not only two outstanding players, but also two good people.
«When I played with Federer and Novak for the first time, I couldn’t hit on the court… That was really bad for me, but after meeting them and realizing what a good person they were, I felt much easier.» Kecmanovic said in an exclusive with Sport Klub.
«They gave me a lot of advice. Honestly, I asked them about certain things because I wanted to hear from them, and I got really good advice, especially about my future and what to do next. It’s good to hear that advice from someone.» who has been through and experienced all those things.
Kecmanovic, who enjoyed an outstanding season on the Tour this year, is looking forward to 2020 as he aims to continue his rise and improve next season. The 20-year-old Serb finished second at the Antalya Open this year and was ranked No.
47 in the world.
Nole withdrew from the Cincinnati Masters
Former world No. 1 and seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe has once again come forward to criticize the US government. «Well, first of all, I think it’s nonsense,» McEnroe said.
«That’s what I think. Novak Djokovic should be able to play. My personal opinion is that they vaccinated me, they gave me the booster vaccine, and that depends on each individual. If I were him and I’m not, you know, he has won many more Majors than me and it is because he has worked hard and has found that will that very few people in any sport have found.
That’s part of what has made it so great. He sticks to his gun and has a perfect right to make the decision. The boy is one of the best athletes in any sport. He is very careful about what he puts into his body, so it is frustrating to see at this time that he is not allowed to enter the country because he is not vaccinated.
It’s really unfortunate, but that’s the rule we have now in government. I don’t agree with that, but that’s c’est la vie right now,» McEnroe said. In June, the US government will be required to show proof of double vaccination.
