Neither Sampras, Federer, nor Nadal.The one who has won the most, whether they like it or not, is Serbian Novak Djokovic
Tennis world No. 1 Novak Djokovic defeated Alejandro Davidovic-Fokina 6-3, 6-4 in Group C of the playoffs on Friday. Serbia won a point and advanced to the Davis Cup quarterfinals.
But other than that, Djokovic was experiencing his moment of glory, and strangely he wasn’t considered the best in the world at the time like Pete Sampras, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. Good players get media attention like that. time.
Djokovic arrived in Valencia after winning the US Open and made his best debut in the Davis Cup tie, making it 2-0, eliminating Carlos Alcala Spanish team in Sri Lanka.
Davidovic seemed on the verge of surprising the world number one from less to more, and with the score 4-3 in his favor, he played his best to take the first set.
In the second set, Davidovic led 4-1, but then Djokovic began to counterattack in earnest.
When he reached 5-2 on serve, two unforced errors caused the Spaniard to lose his serve, and Davidovic’s collapse began at that point.
Djokovic won five consecutive games to finally take the set, win the match, and help Serbia win the match.
“I’m happy with everything that’s been going on on the tennis court lately,” “Noel” said.
“Playing for Serbia, for my country, is something completely different. It’s a huge responsibility and pressure, but it’s also a privilege and an honour,” he added.
Earlier, Serbia took the lead after Albert Ramos lost 6-4 to Laszlo Djere in doubles.
The loss to Serbia meant the elimination of Spain’s Armada, who lost 3-0 to the Czech Republic in their first Davis Cup group stage match on Wednesday.
The Spaniard cannot count on Carlos Alcaraz, who withdrew from the break after the US Open.
“I’m happy to represent Spain in the Davis Cup in Valencia, but after traveling for a long time I have to listen to my body. I need to stop and rest, physically and mentally,” he expressed on social networks.
Spain will not be able to participate in November’s quarter-finals in Malaga (southern Spain), where Serbia will play.
To understand what Djokovic’s performance represents, the Serbian has set a record of 390 weeks as world No. 1 and has finished the season in this position for 7 consecutive years, which is also a unique record.
In addition, he once became the world’s number one for 12 years, which is another record. As if that wasn’t enough, he is the only man to have won all the Grand Slams 3 times, we repeat, uniquely, among them he also has no one who can compare to the man who won all the Grand Slams 87 times.
His other records include winning the Australian GS title 10 times and tying Roger Federer with 7 wins at Wimbledon. It’s strange that the best tennis player in history isn’t talked about anymore.
