At the quarter-finals of the Italian Open 2022, in Rome, Novak Djokovic is continuing his march towards the Roland Garros 2022. Novak, in the press conference, talked about a lot of topics, from clay courts to his imitation of American singer Britney Spears.
Djokovic said, starting to talk about Felix Auger-Aliassime, Tony Nadal’s new player: “Clay-courts is not his favorite surface. I think he is improving a lot though. He has worked with Toni Nadal for the past two years, who has certainly contributed to his clay-game.
He has been an established athlete in the top 20 and top 10 for some time. He has a very complete game, very nice guy, who works hard. ”
Novak Djokovic and his imitations
Over the course of his career, Novak Djokovic has been the protagonist of funny curtains several times relating to his imitations of characters from the ATP Tour and beyond.
How can we forget his funny imitations of Maria Sharapova or Rafael Nadal before serving? During the conference Djokovic made it clear why he no longer makes these imitations. Here are his words: “We were at the Players Show in Monte Carlo and I imitated Britney Spears.
It was fun, I remember I had denim shorts and my mom was shocked. Let’s say that since that time I stopped for a while, I think you will exaggerate! But I often have fun and do them, only away from the cameras. ” Novak Djokovic, in case of no success against Felix Auger-Aliassime, will lose the first position in the ranking to the detriment of the Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev.
The latter, currently stopped due to injury, could be number one in the world without playing. However, Nole seems the favorite for the final victory in Rome, considering the elimination of Rafael Nadal against Denis Shapovalov and the absence of Carlos Alcaraz.
We recall the Serb will be the main favorite at the Roland Garros 2022, considering Rafael Nadal’s injury and Carlos Alcaraz’s effectiveness to understand on a Slam event, played on two weeks and at the best of five sets.
