Todd Woodbridge Questions Novak Djokovic'S Injury

Todd Woodbridge questions Novak Djokovic’s injury

Todd Woodbridge questioned the severity of the injury Novak Djokovic suffered at the 2023 Australian Open. An injury that, however, did not prevent the Serbian champion from beating Alex de Minaur and reaching the quarterfinals.

Woodbridge, who currently works in sports broadcasting, is one of many who have expressed doubts about the extent of Djokovic’s injury. He said: «He seems a bit clumsy between points, but once he starts running, there’s absolutely no problem with the way he moves. I’m not saying it’s skill in the game, it’s pretty obvious that he has a little problem, but sometimes it seems like he’s about to break it sounds good here and there, but you know, that’s Novak.

Novak uses that kind of energy to focus, to shoot and we’ve seen him use the crowd in the same way at times. And that’s how he does it and we’ve been looking at it for a long time.» Boris Becker, Novak Djokovic’s former coach, said his former player would never have resorted to such tactics.: «Sometimes you think he’s lying or that he can’t finish the game.

It’s a bit of heaven and hell. This also makes it difficult for the opponent. But Novak wouldn’t do that if he had nothing. I have known him for a long time and I know that he has thigh problems. Novak may grit his teeth when it comes to big points, but he also gets carried away in the less important moments.»

Novak in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open 2023

Novak Djokovic returns to normal on the eve of the quarterfinals.

What’s more, in a segment of the scoreboard that has been mostly orphaned by real obstacles, even if only with completely stationary bowls. After living with the ghosts of a thigh problem between the first and third rounds, the Serbian phenom disposes of Alex de Minaur with a mammoth performance.

The nine-time tournament champion does not allow break points during the scarce two hours of play that he manages in an extraordinary way both in the setting phase and with the available serve. It goes without saying that, in addition to the six breaks that he distributes surgically, with the joke he leaves just sixteen points on the street.

Djokovic seals the 6-2 6-1 6-2 victory and collects a new avalanche of records according to the logic of things.
