Nole, Nole!” ‘Invincible’ Djokovic, 2 wins left!
Serbian fan: “Djokovic has already won 9 titles. Who is a stronger favorite than Djokovic?” Australian Reporter: “Last year’s corona expulsion remains, but it is still ranked 0 for the championship.” Just before the opening of the Australian Open, officials who met in Melbourne unanimously predicted Djokovic’s 10th win. Aside from being a fan of Serbia, a veteran journalist from a tennis powerhouse who has covered tennis for more than 20 years acknowledged his skills while mentioning the noise of the expulsion process. 안전놀이터
When I asked a Serbian fan interviewed why he called Djokovic ‘Nole’, he pointed out that it was just a nickname for ‘Novak’, and also called the well-known ‘Joker’. An all-around cheat key for card games, ‘Joker’ means a clown. It’s a perfect nickname considering the tennis skills he can’t do, and his sense of entertainment that he shows off from time to time.
In early 2022, he was expelled from Australia due to non-vaccination and his 4th consecutive defeat was frustrated, but Djokovic returned dramatically thanks to quarantine mitigation. The first round at the Rod Laver Arena, which he stepped on again after two years, must have been thrilled by himself. After the game, he signed autographs for each fan and even gave the best lip service.
“If I had to choose only one court and time on earth, I’d take the night sessions at Rod Laver Arena, because (with you) I could play all night. It’s the best court with the greatest success of my life. .” The stadium seemed to be leaving, and the Serbian fans shouted “Nole (Nole) Nole Nole!”
A hamstring injury on the back of the thigh that Son Heung-min also suffered, usually takes more than a month to recover, but Djokovic is holding on. A major tournament that requires seven consecutive victories to win. So far it doesn’t seem too bad. Djokovic’s intuition after 7 years since the 2016 French Open. The flexibility of the racquet head going down to the hip pubis during the serve movement seemed to defy the years. The proprietary serve return was as tight as a net, and if by chance the opponent’s ball slipped through the net, he removed it all with his arms reminiscent of a mollusk, flexible and gadget-like. . Djokovic always took the lead in the rally, whether it was with the right to serve or the return order.
Aggressive ship is reborn as a ‘bagel maker’
It is true that Djokovic’s play was disparaged as relatively ‘no jam’ compared to the flashy Federer and warrior-like Nadal’s play. The serve rarely exceeded 200 km, and the stroke was not one-shot-one-kill. But this year in Melbourne it was different. The last set of games against Baena in round 1 and Cuaco in round 2 both ended with bagel scores. Was it because of the aftermath of the thigh injury that he wanted to speed up the game?
