Novak Djokovic Looking Good Ahead Of Major Events
Even though he was not at his best physically, Novak played exceptionally well in Adelaide. He won his set 6-3 against Sinner which is not easy as the Italian has been in great form. This is certainly a positive sign for the Serb especially since 2 big events are on the horizon.
The first event is the ATP Cup which begins on the 1st of February. This is a team event and Djokovic-led Serbia are the defending champions! They are surely looking to triumph there again even though it has been reduced to a 4-day event in 2021.
After this, Novak will be playing the most important tournament of his career – the Australian Open. He has won it a record 8 times and he has also never lost a final there.
He is looking to extend his record at the Melbourne Slam this year but it’s not going to be easy. The NextGen of tennis could pose a huge threat to the Serb and he will have to prepare to face their challenge. Good luck Nole!
