When we talk about some of the greatest tennis players, Novak Djokovic is one such name that pops up in the head pretty fast. However, this year has not been a complete success for Novak Djokovic. No doubt, his game was one the best in his history. But the fate of winning wasn’t there for him.
This season, Djokovic managed to win only one Grand Slam title. This season his game was nothing but the best of his life. Although, he lost both French and US Open. Djokovic started his 2020 season with a bang and won three consecutive tournaments, including the Australian Open.
Novak outshined everyone in the other matches as well. Likewise, at the Cincinnati Masters. He also won Italian Open and reached the finals of the French Open. However, he couldn’t beat Rafael Nadal.
“There Is A Lingering Regret”: Novak Djokovic
Talking to the media, Djokovic expressed how much he regrets losing every day. He said, “There is a lingering regret that I didn’t win either the US Open or the Roland Garros this year.”
“I was in outstanding form at both events but having reached the French Open final, I was beaten by a player who was much better on the day.” he continued talking about losing to Rafa.
Djokovic also spoke about his disqualification and said, “I was below par, and that’s it. As far as the US Open is concerned, I got myself into an unfortunate situation and was disqualified, but I won several other big tournaments. The US Open disqualification notwithstanding, I have only lost one match all season, and I’ve played some of the best tennis of my life,” he concluded.
Additionally, it was terrific to see Djokovic playing so well, and he did perform well in all the matches. However, trophies were just not in his fate.
