Novak Djokovic could not finish the Grand Slam this Sunday and the defeated against Daniil Medvedev was a moral blow for the Serbian, who is not getting the results that I expected this season.
After finishing the game Novak Djokovic recognized “It is a difficult defeat to assimilate” and as I hint it could be taken its time to return to the slopes: “I don’t know if I will play somewhere. Right now, my mind can only be here in New York. ”
It may be that after this defeat the Serbian is considering taking a break, because for now it is confirmed that will not play the Laver Cup, competition that will take place from September 24 to 26. Among all big events that still remain to be disputed in 2021 are the Indian wells (from October 7 to 17), Paris-Bercy (from November 1 to 7), ATP Finals (from November 14 to 21) and the Davis Cup Finals (from November 25 to December 5).
Djokovic had become like challenge to conquer the two big ones competitions of the second half of 2021, but the reality is that it has not turned out as he wanted. First you will escaped the ‘Golden Slam’ in the race and the possibility of the annual, then he missed the medal in the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics against Alexander Zverev. After lost the Olympic bronze against Pablo Carreño and now he has left the greatest challenge that was posed to him, giving in against Daniil Medvedev.
The Serbian recognized as soon as the end of the duel that this has been a severe blow to their morale, so minutes later he left open the possibility of closing the season, in order to look with different eyes and another energy at the 2022 Australian Open.
