In a long interview, Annabel Croft He said he didn’t like the way he was treated Novak Djokovic this year. She explained: «I didn’t like the way Novak Djokovic was treated this year. I think everything was handled in a disastrous way.
It’s unfair that he can’t play the Australian Open and the US Open. The outbreak of war in Ukraine has complicated the situation for Russian and Belarusian tennis players, making 2022 one of the most tumultuous years in tennis history.»
Annabel discussed Nole’s prospects: «The Serb is still the strongest player in the world. Despite everything he went through in 2022, he managed to win Wimbledon and qualify for the ATP Finals. The way he beat Nick Kyrgios in London was awesome.
Kyrgios gave his best in that tournament expressing fantastic tennis, but Novak was able to neutralize him.»
Novak’s problems in 2022: what happened to the Serbian
Not having been vaccinated against the Coronavirus, Novak Djokovic has had several problems this year.
The Serbian veteran ended up in the eye of the storm and had to miss two majors, the Australian Open and the US Open, as well as all the American Masters 1000. The former world number 1 saw his eternal rival Rafael Nadal extend the all-in Grand Slam standings, thanks to the Spaniard’s triumphs at the Australian Open and Roland Garros.
The 35-year-old from Belgrade lifted his season by winning at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career, the fourth in a row. Nole has thus equaled his idol Pete Sampras and has won 21 Majors, just one distance from Nadal.
The ‘Djoker’ hopes to be able to participate in the Australian Open 2023, but he will have to wait a few weeks to know the definitive answer. His lawyers are in contact with the Australian authorities and it seems that all the conditions are in place for Nole to play the Australian Open 2023.
