Tennis break for Novak Djokovic after Australian Open loss

4 min read

It has been reported that world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic is contemplating taking a break from the sport after he suffered a humiliating defeat at the Australian Open against Italy’s Jannik Sinner on Friday.

On the same day, Sinner defeated Djokovic during the semi-finals of the tournament, preventing him from claiming a record 25th Grand Slam title.

The 36-year-old Djokovic suffered his first loss at Melbourne Park since the 2014 Australian Open and called his match against Sinner his “worst ever display in a Grand Slam” as the Serbian failed to capitalize on a single break point in the entire match against Sinner.

According to his website, after the Serbian lost in the finals of the Indian Wells Masters, he will not be able to return to the court until March. As has been the case for the past two years, Djokovic will not be participating in the Dubai Championships in February.

A 24-time Grand Slam champion remains uncertain regarding his calendar, as after losing his semi-final match to Novak Djokovic, he told Serbian media that he needs time to process the loss in order to move forward.

It will be interesting to see how things play out over the course of the next few years. It is still hot in your head after you have left the court after losing a match – even though you are fighting to be rational, you are still filled with many irrational thoughts in your head as the world No. 1 said in the following interview.

When I calm down from my thoughts, I will move on and find out what tournaments I will be playing once I have settled my thoughts. My intention this year is to give it all I have, with the priority being the Slams and the Olympics, and I have committed myself to giving it everything I have. The only thing we can do is wait and see if anything changes, in this stage of my life and my career, some surprising decisions might be expected more than they were twenty years ago.”.

There was a time when Djokovic was targeting a “Golden Slam” this year – winning all four Slams, including the Olympics – and was aiming for it at the beginning of this season, but it appears Djokovic’s dream has come true.

On Sunday, Jannik Sinner is scheduled to play against Daniil Medvedev in the final of the men’s singles at the Australian Open. Despite the fact that it will be the Italian’s first appearance in a Grand Slam final, it will be the Russian’s sixth appearance at the event.
