Federer was always pompous and polite while Nadal lived the principles and modesty. Djokovic’s problem is clear that he cannot hide his negative emotions in every match. Djokovic was inherently unpopular, and it was the fastest way for him to turn into the villain in the eyes of most tennis viewers.
“Nole” may not be as flexible as Federer or as industrious as Nadal, but if you combine Federer’s IQ and Nadal’s endurance, you can create a Djokovic-like player. Technically, Serbian tennis players have clearly reached the level of at least the level of two seniors, to join them in creating the concept of “Big 3”.
But from the perspective of the fans, there is no compelling reason to explain that a player with 276 weeks ranked number one in the world, owns 17 Grand Slams, won the Masters 1000 and ATP Finals, confronted marginally better than both Nadal and Federer, hated so much.
Federer as the artist, with perfection as perfect and accurate as a Swiss watch, Nadal is like a warrior, with the power of a Spanish gaur, combining these two extremes, you have a battle to be expected and be forever mentioning, Djokovic, nicknamed “Iron Man”, who grew up in Serbia in the bombardment of war, experienced hardship and hardship, was an outsider in the battle between ‘Artist’ and ‘ Combatant”.
The estrangement of the crowd on the field does not affect Djokovic’s behavior in real life. Present at most major tournaments, Ben Rothenberg, one of the New York Times’ tennis managers, revealed that Djokovic is the most generous and friendly tennis player he has ever seen.
However, Djokovic – who has never denied his desire to become the greatest player – once again chose the title over the love of the audience. In a frustrated mood, the Serbian tennis player still managed to use tactical acumen and experience to adjust everything back to the right trajectory.
Won the 17th Grand Slam and regained the number one position in the world, Djokovic simultaneously approached the two records he considered the most important in a player’s career. He is only three weeks behind Federer and Grand Slam and 34 weeks at the top of the ATP. Djokovic is causing those who do not support him to expect a miracle that derailed the most destructive machine of felt in the past 10 years.
But there is a simpler option for all, which is to enjoy the best tennis and appreciate more of what Djokovic has brought to the sport: the fierce competition unprecedented in history.
The LPGA Tour, a professional female golf tournament system, is struggling with the epidemic caused by nCoV.
Since the beginning of the year, the LPGA Tour has had to cancel or postpone six events. After a series of three tournaments in China, Singapore and Thailand, the women’s golf system recently postponed an additional three tournaments in the US, including the first ANA Inspiration – major this season.
After the latest announcement about the suspension of the schedule last weekend, special agent Mike Whan immediately thought of 19 rookie golfers of the 2020 season, instead of the stars. Understanding their worries, Whan opened his cell phone and called everyone.
This is a challenging time for the women’s arena with 70 years of establishment history. A decade ago, Whan received the special envoy when the LPGA Tour had only 23 awards with a total fund of $ 40 million in 52 weeks. For 10 years, he drove a 50% increase in the number of events, an 80% annual bonus fund, and a 100% television coverage.
LPGA Tour affluent with prize fund reached more than 70 million for the new season. Officially opened in mid-January, this arena has only completed four tournaments and has been halted because of Covid-19 since mid-February.
An atmosphere of anxiety is taking place on the LPGA Tour, from administrative staff, golfers to partners, not only to the Board of Directors but the Whan leader. Their biggest concern is not being able to estimate the timing and number of additional delays as well as the consequences of this for the future of the LPGA Tour. And they saw preliminary damage.
Events such as Volvik Founders Cup this week, Kia Classic and ANA Inspiration in the next two weeks, almost completed the infrastructure for the tournament, but had to dismantle all because of nCoV. In addition, partners offering products or services and LPGA Tour investments “disbanded”, and the date of the reunion was unknown.
But the top management of LPGA Tour was uncertain about the endurance of the reserves before the complicated movements of nCoV.
The passion has only weakened a bit in the past 10 years, when the power balance of the tennis sport has been tilted towards Djokovic. Before Djokovic was crowned at the Rod Laver Arena on January 30, 2011, he had only one Grand Slam. Federer then had 16 Grand Slams while Nadal had online 9. After the victory over Thiem, the gap was narrowed with Federer 20, Nadal 19, and Djokovic 17.
Djokovic’s success is good for the competition and development of men’s tennis, but after all, people don’t want that to happen. The day Djokovic was still firmly in third place, as the spoiler Federer and Nadal, he was praised and encouraged after each failure.
In the period of 2011 – early 2012, he continuously defeated Nadal on every surface, everything was fine. “Djokovic will prevent Nadal from catching up with Federer,” many people thought. When Djokovic was close to the 2015 Roland Garros title but lost to Stan Wawrinka in the final, the audience gave him a long round of applause that touched him to the point of tears.
But when Djokovic was Federer’s biggest obstacle on the journey to increase the number of Grand Slams, and sticking to “Express Train”, fans began to feel uncomfortable. The more major titles he won, the more lonely Nole became on the field.
But why is only Djokovic hated when he defeated Federer, while the first major opponent of Swiss tennis player Rafael Nadal? It was Nadal who struck Federer’s Grand Slam record for most of his career. But the Spaniard was welcomed even when he won on Federer’s forte. Nobody forgot the tears of Nadal and Federer at the Wimbledon final in 2008. A classic and romantic coronation, something Djokovic did not get even though he won many great titles.
Alex Pattle explains that Nadal is feared by his passion on the field and his philosophy of counter-attacking Federer. These factors make the “Express Train” fans more likely to accept defeat than when their idol loses to Djokovic, whose style is similar to Federer’s but more cruel and less flowery.
Another tennis journalist, Alex Palmer said that the cause lies in two factors. One is that Djokovic emerged after Federer and Nadal, who are from two opposing schools, owning a typical play and not as vague as Djokovic. The other is the behavior on the field.
Lorenzo Gagli and Edoardo Molinari are in quarantine, closely monitored in the hotel room in Muscat, because of the risk of new strain of Corona virus.
The quarantine made Gagli and Molinari unable to attend the Oman Open of the European Tour, scheduled to start on February 27.
According to La Nazione (Italy), a European Tour doctor told Gagli to go to his room after breakfast on February 26, and Molinari was transferred to another room. Both stayed in the same room for the previous few days.
After the test, Gagli was informed that the results would be available within two days, but he would have to stay alone until March 4. That means this golfer can leave the Qatar Masters from 5/3 to 8/3. The common procedure for isolating nCoV infections is usually 14 days.
European Tour spokesmen announced that Gagli and Molinari had left the Oman Open for medical reasons. But he refused to provide more information.
Italy is the center of Covid-19 in Europe. Statistics at the end of February 26 showed that the country recorded 12 deaths and 400 cases of nCov infection.
In contrast, previous health developments became more evident through Gagli’s narrative. Accordingly, last week, the European Tour sent an e-mail asking for the yellow fever vaccine for golfers to register for the Hero Indian Open from March 19-22 in New Delhi. However, Gagli did not receive the vaccine before leaving Italy, and then he was examined by a European Tour doctor on February 25.
34-year-old Gagli from Firenze, has just won a trophy in his professional career, thanks to his victory at the Kenya Open 2018 in the Second Tournament of Tournament. Last year, he was involved in a private armies match including Rory McIlroy at the European Masters in Switzerland, and the final victory went to Sebastian Soderberg.

On the world rankings, Edoardo Molinari ranked 348, and Gagli ranked 407.
World No. 3 player – Roger Federer – retired from competition after the French Open, due to knee surgery.
“I have been struggling with my right knee pain all the time,” he wrote on his Instagram account. “I thought the wound would heal on its own, but no. After being checked for the injury, I decided to have a knee surgery in Switzerland yesterday 19 February.
After the surgery, the doctor said that I had made the right decision. I am confident that I will recover completely quickly, unfortunately, I will miss tournaments in Dubai, Indian Wells, Bogota, Miami and Roland Garros. pitch”.
Federer showed signs of injury in the Australian Open earlier this year. In the quarterfinals against Tennys Sandgren, he suffered from groin pain and had to seek medical attention. He then stopped in the semi-finals when he lost three sets to Novak Djokovic.
Since then, it has been a month since Federer has competed in any official tournament. He only attended the performance in Cape Town (South Africa) with a victory over Rafael Nadal.
“Express train” will miss the five tournaments he plans to attend from the beginning of the year. It was a performance battle in Bogota (Colombia) ATP 500 in Dubai (UAE), two consecutive Masters competitions in Indian Wells and Miami (USA) and the French Open Grand Slam.
Last year, Federer won Dubai and Miami, won runner-up Indian Wells and reached the semi-finals of Roland Garros. He achieved 2,820 ATP points from these four awards.
Not to mention Federer will also be absent from the two clay Masters – Rome and Madrid – that he attended last year. Federer stopped in the quarterfinals and only reached 180 points. That means Federer will lose 3,180 points after Roland Garros.
The 38-year-old currently has 7,130 points, 85 points ahead of Dominic Thiem’s fourth. Below him, only two players have more than 4,000 points, Stefanos Tsitsipas (4,745) and Daniil Medvedev (5,890).
French Open takes place from May 24 to June 7. If he recovered, Federer re-appeared at Gerry Weber Open in Halle (Germany) on June 13. Federer is the defending champion Halle and will have to defend 500 points.
The latest test results show that Andy Murray’s injury seems to be worse than expected, which forced him to add the Miami Open to the list of tournaments that he will miss.
At the end of the 2019 season, Andy Murray showed optimism after defeating Stan Wawrinka in the European Open final in Antwerp. It was his first single title since hip surgery.
The 32-year-old continued with England for the Davis Cup but could only play one game because of a groin injury. That forced former Wimbledon and US Open champions to miss the ATP Cup and the Australian Open earlier this year.
Andy Murray could not come back 4 months later because the injury was more complicated than expected.
After that, Murray planned for his comeback further. Withdrew from Montpellier and Rotterdam but the Miami Open is still the tournament in the schedule. The Masters tournament in the US in March was the place to witness many beautiful memories of tennis players born in 1987 with 2 championships in 2009 and 2013 and 2 times in second (2012 and 2015). Today, however, the Daily Mail released reports that Andy Murray had ignored that plan.
Specifically, it is likely that the English tennis player will miss the clay season due to more complicated injuries than expected plus the physical requirements of the pitch. That means the Miami Open held in late March is also on the missed list of the reigning Olympic champion. According to the UK-based newspaper, Murray can only return when the season starts.
Although Andy Murray’s representative did not give any official feedback on the information, the Daily Mail confirmed that the English tennis player is trying to keep up before ATP events in Nottingham, Queen’s, Eastbourne and Wimbledon. The former world’s No. 1 is expected to kick off with the Surbiton Challenger tournament on June 1.
The success of Novak Djokovic is necessary for the competition of tennis, but many people do not want that to happen.
A tennis fan said so to Independent journalist Alex Pattle, after Djokovic beat Federer in the semi-finals of the Australian Open 2020 last week. Another, after admitting Djokovic as his favorite player, said he believed Federer would still be the greatest player of all time, and wanted that reflected in the number of Grand Slams at the end of his career. Not just them, the majority of tennis fans in the world want that to happen.
Boris Becker, the former world number one who once led Djokovic, revealed that “Nole” was always disappointed that he was left in the race to win the hearts of fans, compared to Federer and Nadal. Before the 2019 Wimbledon final against Federer, Djokovic even felt insecure outside the field – something different from his stubbornness and resilience inside the pitch
When Djokovic won his fifth championship at the All England Club, after saving two match-points and beating Federer in Wimbledon’s first super tie-break series, disappointment spread across most tennis clubs, sports bars or Family living rooms around the world.
They don’t care about the fact that Djokovic is the all-round tennis player and the best tennis player in the past decade. For many fans, if not Federer or Nadal, that person is not to be applauded.
Even in the Australian Open, where Djokovic is the most beloved of the four Grand Slams, the admiration for him is not as great as the fear that he will surpass Federer’s 20 Grand Slams. Possessing a record seven-time championship, but when confronted with Federer in the semi-finals, Djokovic was still under great pressure when the audience mostly cheered for “Express Train”.
Federer is the most favorite tennis player of all time, that is the truth. Suggesting to the crowd that Djokovic deserves the same popularity, after all his efforts, is futile. Federer is considered the ambassador of this sport, with the standard of elegance and beautiful style as in textbooks.
The top two seeds, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, will compete in the Australian Open semi-finals on January 30, 2020.
It will be the 50th encounter between two contemporary legends of men’s tennis with a 26-23 confrontation advantage belonging to Djokovic. In the Australian Open alone, “Nole” won three and only lost once to Federer. Those three Djokovic victories all took place in the semi-finals, in 2008, 2011 and 2016. Serbian tennis players have never lost in the semi-finals and finals in Melbourne Park.
However, the second seed also proved particularly wary of veteran opponents. He said: “Roger is still Roger. Everyone knows that he always plays at a high level on any pitch. Roger is excited in such great competitions, before the big competitors in the semi-finals or in general. Grand Slam “.
Today, when stepping into the Rod Laver Arena, Djokovic understands that he will have to push himself to the highest realm in order to fight his rival Federer.
No one knows how to beat the “Express Train” on the Melbourne Park stage better than Djokovic, but the player who holds the record for most league titles with seven titles also knows the threat from the other side of the net well. Federer was the one who extinguished Djokovic’s hope of ending the 2019 season with the world’s number one, beating Nole in the ATP Finals last year.
Before reuniting with Djokovic in the Australian Open semi-finals this year, the 38-year-old had a spectacular escape in the quarterfinals. Federer then saved seven match-points in the victory over Tennys Sandgren.
At the first Grand Slam of the year, the 32-year-old continued to prove his class by winning 13 consecutive sets since the third set in the first round against Jan-Lennard Struff.
Watching the 20 Grand Slam champion take nine minutes to get medical attention in the three-and-a-half-hour marathon before Sandgren, fans could not help but worry about the risk of a groin injury to Federer.
