‘Roger Federer and Nadal’s fans should support Djokovic’

Novak Djokovic has the chance to write another page of history in this edition of the US Open. The number 1 in the world pursues the dream of reaching the calendar Grand Slam, a feat that was only successful once in the Open era (with Rod Laver in 1969).

After winning the three top majors of the season, the Serb is also the big favorite in New York, where he triumphed three times in his career. The 34-year-old Belgrade made the first three rounds of Flushing Meadows relatively easy and only had some difficulties at the beginning of the match against Kei Nishikori.

After losing the first set on the tie-break, Nole increased the revs of his engine by archiving the workout without using too much energy. With a triumph in Flushing Meadows, Djokovic would increase to 21 slams and thus surpass eternal rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

The Swiss and the Spaniard are both absent due to injuries and will not return to the field before 2022. Former American champion Jim Courier said in the last few days on the Tennis Channel that all tennis fans should cheer on Novak during these two weeks in New York.

Courier said, “I want to express a concept that many people disagree on. I feel sorry for the fans of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, but everyone should encourage Novak Djokovic and hope that he can do the Grand Slam.

It would be great for sports in general. An achievement of this magnitude would not only have an impact on his career, but the response would also be immense outside of tennis. “

The 20-time Grand Slam champion has always known that he can achieve something great: “When I won four majors in a row between 2015 and 2016, I knew that one day I would have the chance to win the Grand Slam deny.

I improved on all surfaces and the experience helped me cope with the different moments. I will do everything I can to be successful. ”
