Djokovic fell apart at the Olympics, but that doesn’t mean anything. He is still cooler than Nadal and Medvedev


The first racket of the world Novak Djokovic still has a chance to repeat the achievements of Donald Badge and Rod Laver, who won the calendar “Grand Slam”. For this, the Serb must win the US Open. Prior to that, Djokovic won the Australian, French and Wimbledon Opens. Before the US Open Tour participants will hold several traditional “Masters” on hard surface, the coefficients for which will be published on the website

Does Djokovic have the potential for a fourth Grand Slam in 2021

With so much competition in modern tennis, Djokovic’s accomplishments this season are truly noteworthy. Recall that the Serb managed to beat Nadal in the semifinals of the French Open – 3: 1 – and in the final of Tsitsipas – 3: 2, which does him credit. Still, the Spaniard is always the No. 1 contender for the trophy in Paris, while the Greek traditionally demonstrates the best results on clay.

At the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic beat several top ten players: Zverev – 3: 1 – and Medvedev – 3: 0 – in the final. According to the general opinion of experts, Novak earned the title, as he approached the decisive stages in optimal shape.

At Wimbledon, Djokovic acted with the usual confidence, giving only two sets. We can say that the English courts are conducive to the successful performances of Novak. In the final, he lost the first set to Berrettini, but in the rest of the games he was at his best.

Considering the more confident play of Djokovic on hard, we can assume his success at the upcoming US Open. But how realistic are his chances of winning the trophy now? Indeed, in the previous two draws, Novak did not even make it to the final.

Much will be understood at the next “Masters” – in Canada and Cincinnati, which will be available for analysis by site visitors

Last season and 2018, Djokovic won the Cincinnati tournament held ahead of the US Open. But in Canada, he has not won since 2016. If the Serb holds the upcoming Masters at the same level, he will have a good chance of winning in New York.

The Tokyo Olympics factor

Of course, Novak wanted to win the Golden Helmet by winning the Olympics. But it did not work out, in the semifinals Djokovic lost to Zverev, and in the fight for bronze to the Spaniard Carreno-Bust. Moreover, several times Djokovic threw the racket into the stands and into the net, without controlling emotions.

Naturally, the emotional background of Djokovic after the Olympics is not the best. He needs to recover emotionally and physically as soon as possible, throw out negativity and prepare in the same rhythm as he usually does. If Novak manages to get on track, forget about recent defeats, everything will be fine.
