For Novak Djokovic, the 2022 season ended with a prestigious success. Indeed, the Serb won the Masters for the 6th time in his career. A great end to the year therefore for Djokovic, who has not only had easy times in recent months, in particular due to Covid-19 and the fact that he is not vaccinated against it. Goran Ivanisevic, his coach, also gave behind the scenes of this complicated season.
Firmly opposed to vaccination against Covid-19, Novak Djokovic never changed position. And yet he played very nasty tricks on him throughout the 2022 season. And it had started at the start of the year, in January, at theAustralian Open. Initially benefiting from an authorization to play melbourne, the Serb was eventually expelled from the territory by the Australian authorities. A few months later, still because of his non-vaccination, Djokovic couldn’t argue with theU.S. Openespecially since despite his victory at Wimbledonhe did not receive points in the classification ATP.

“It was a roller coaster”
Novak Djokovic went through all the states in 2022, but there were more complications than good times. Goran Ivanisevic, trainer of the Serb, can also testify to this. And in words reported by WeLoveTennishe said more about this ordeal endured by Djokovicexplaining in particular: When you’re a tennis player, you’re under pressure all the time, but we had to wait to do the planning and we couldn’t organize ourselves. First you are allowed to play, then the restriction finally does not allow you to play. You’re preparing for something you can’t play. You don’t know where and what to prepare for. It was the roller coaster. Luckily things calmed down and more and more countries opened up “.
“In the end, he could have finished world number 1”
“After Wimbledon, we were expecting positive news from the United States, but it didn’t come. Then we waited for the news from Australia, which arrived. The worst is the wait. You want to play and you don’t know where you can play. In the end, he could have finished world number 1 if the ATP had not withdrawn the points from Wimbledon. I don’t want to talk about the 8000 points he couldn’t even defend “, also added the coach of Djokovic.
