In an interview with Sportskeeda, former ATP No. 5 Tommy Robredo affirmed that the greatest title in tennis history is the rivalry between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic . Still, Robredo admits it’s hard to choose between them.
“Rafa and Novak are very close to being the greatest tennis players of all time. Everything depends on whether we think the Grand Slam or the Davis Cup is more important, the number of weeks at No. 1 in the ATP and many other factors. Good or not. It’s hard to say who is the most powerful at this time.”quoted by Tommy Robredo.
Famous British hairstylist John Clark has just posted a photo on Instagram of Emma Raducanu with her blond hair dyed so deep. In the comments section, fans praised the 2021 US Open women’s singles champion for moving away from the familiar country image for a more personal style.
The U.S. government still maintains rules requiring foreigners to enter the country with a Covid-19 vaccine passport, and Djokovic has confirmed he will not be vaccinated. The Serbian tennis player doesn’t want to put a vaccine in his body, whether he’s playing a major or not.
Not only the US Open, Djokovic will not be able to play in the other 3 major events in the US, namely the City Open (ATP 500) and 2 Masters 1,000 events, including the Roger Cup, the Cincinnati Masters.
The former world No. 1 has had to miss many matches since the start of 2022. The 35-year-old tennis player has been deported from Australia for not being vaccinated against Covid-19 and has been banned from the 2022 Australian Open. Also ineligible, Djokovic missed two ATP Masters 1000 tournaments in the United States in March 2022, including Indian Wells and the Miami Masters.
Djokovic’s coach, Mr Ivanisevic, was angry on his behalf, telling the sports club: “He deserved to be at Wimbledon and had a great game with Nick Kyrgios. It was an honour and a pleasure to work with Djokovic, he has won all the titles but is still hungry for success. He spent It’s been a tough year, it’s not fair, a lot of bad things happened to him.”.
Djokovic has eaten too much in 2022, lost his chance at a Grand Slam at the Australian Open, didn’t have his best performance at Roland Garros, and although he just won Wimbledon, he is likely to miss the US Open. From first place at the beginning of the year, the Serbian tennis player is currently ranked seventh in the world, three places behind rival Rafael Nadal.
Wimbledon 2022 men’s singles runner-up Nick Kyrgios will compete in the Cincinnati Masters 1000 — another way to kick off the 2022 U.S. Open with the Western and Southern Open tennis tournament. However, the bad boys of the Australian Felt Village were only in the game, thanks to wildcards. The reason is that when the Cincinnati Masters organizers closed the list last week, he was No. 45 in the world (now it’s even down to No. 47). Meanwhile, only 41 of the world’s top players made it to the main round of the Cincinnati Masters.
This year’s award is Nick Kyrgios’ sixth visit to Cincinnati. He first entered the event in 2019, and in 2017 he was runner-up in Cincinnati.
The relationship between Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas is deteriorating. The last time we met, Greek tennis players called opponents “bad guys”, while “Australian bad boys” didn’t hesitate to say Tsitsipas was too weak.
In a recent interview, Nick Kyrgios made fun of Tsitsipas again. When asked by reporters about the preparations for the 2022 Citi Open (the men’s ATP 500 tournament, to be held in the United States from July 30 to August 7), the Australian tennis player responded as follows: “We have prepared a lot for the doubles. I will play doubles with Jack Sok at the Citi Open. I am really looking forward to the day of the tournament. Last time I played, I played with Stefanos (Tsitsipas). He is Worst teammate I’ve ever played, so I think it’s going to be a lot of fun this year.”.
