During an interview with RTS, Marc Rosset had some interesting thoughts about Novak Djokovic and his former coach Marian Vajda. Rosset said: “Novak Djokovic’s recent decisions have not convinced me at all.
I am curious to see how he will manage without his longtime coach, Marian Vajda. The last time they broke up, things didn’t go well for Nole.
Will she be able to stay strong even without her henchman? There is always Goran Ivanisevic by his side, but there is not the same chemistry between them. With Marian there was a strong relationship that lasted more than a decade.
After the premature elimination in Monte Carlo, Djokovic did not want to make any drama: “I expected the first match to be difficult from a physical and mental point of view.
Unfortunately, I didn’t win and my week ended prematurely. Now I have to stay optimistic and build my form, keeping in mind that the main target is Roland Garros.”
What happened to Novak?
The last few months have been quite difficult for Novak Djokovic. The world number 1 paid dearly for his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus, having to give up defending his title at the Australian Open.
In addition to suffering serious image damage on the Australian soap opera, the world number 1 helplessly watched as Rafael Nadal triumphed in Melbourne. The Spaniard thus climbed to 21 Majors, surpassing Roger Federer and Djokovic himself in the all-time ranking.
Nole will try to catch up at Roland Garros, where he will be called up to defend the title he won last year. His “campaign” on clay did not start in the best way, as he was defeated by Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters 1000.
The 34-year-old from Belgrade then played the Serbian Open, the last test before the Masters 1000 in Madrid and Rome, and the Djoker lost again but in the final of the tournament against Andrey Rublev.
