Olympic medalist explains Djokovic’s sensational defeat at the Australian Open 15:52

Former third racket in the world, bronze medalist of the 2012 Olympic Games, founder of the children’s tennis school, Nadezhda Petrova talked about the defeat in the semifinals of Novak Djokovic, the former number one in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) rating. The future winner of the Australian Open tournament is from Italian Jannik Sinner. In an interview with socialbites.ca, he told how Sinner was able to defeat his outstanding opponent.

“I didn’t watch the whole match, but when I woke up in the morning, the first thing I did was turn on the broadcast and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the score 6:2, 6:1. How is it possible for Djokovic to lose so easily? I looked and realized Sinner had ruined his game. Djokovic had no time to move. Yes, thanks to his will and experience, he took the set, tried to change the course of the game, but Yannick did not allow him to play tennis.

I wouldn’t say Novak is losing ground; has the motivation to continue, is in good physical condition and is psychologically stable and strong. However, she has a hard time with men who try to rise to her level, after all, age makes itself felt. It is easier for young people to recover, and they are also ready for the matches against Djokovic. One way or another, he has set a goal for himself and is moving towards it; I can only have great respect for the fact that he found the motivation to remain the best for so long,” Petrova said.

Djokovic lost to Sinner in four sets with scores of 1:6, 2:6, 7:6 (8:6), 3:6. In the final, Sinner faced Russian Daniil Medvedev and won the five-set match, losing the first two matches 3:6, 3:6, 6:4, 6:4, 6:3.

It was before named Medvedev’s main rival in the fight for world number one.
