Novak Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanisevic is super confident that his pupil Serbian will win the final at the Roland Garros this year. He also believes that Serb is the favorite amongst all to win the title.
Rafael Nadal aims to lift his fourth consecutive title at the French Open after defeating Italian Jannik Sinner in the quarters and then successfully to win against Diego Schwartzman in the semi.
The conditions at the French Open have never been more challenging than this time. Due to the pandemic, the tournament began in the months of September-October. Ivanisevic believes these conditions suit better to Novak Djokovic than Rafael Nadal.
“I’m counting on Novak Djokovic-Nadal in the final. In my opinion, Rafael Nadal will have no chance in these circumstances on the clay. Maybe I went a little too far, but Novak Djokovic is the main favorite to win for me. He prepared his body and mind in detail. He prepares everything in detail, from tactics to technique, to food, everything”, he said to Sport Klub.
“I Have Never Seen A Mentality Like His”: Goran On Novak
Goran Ivanisevic went on to reveal another secret of Novak Djokovic’s success. He believes that the strong mentality of Djokovic will allow the world number one to win the match. And he said that the Serb always is keen to improve his game, no matter how minor it is.
The coach added, ”He(Djokovic) knows what he must work on to become even better. He wants to work every day, it is very interesting to work with him because he wants to improve with each passing day, even if it is a very minor improvement. I’ve never seen a mentality like his in my life.”
Both players are all set to get through the final initially. However, Ivanisevic has left no stone unturned to make his predictions.
