Novak Djokovic’s chaotic season might add ‘one other yr or two to his profession,’ says former world primary – TennisBuzz

Former world No. 1 Mats Wilander believes that Novak Djokovic’s chaotic season might add one other yr or two to his profession, as a method to make up for misplaced time.

The Serb discovered himself on the centre of controversy initially of this yr after he was deported from Australia, handed a 3 yr ban from coming into the nation and prevented from competing within the Australian Open after failing to get vaccinated in opposition to Covid 19.

Since then, his vaccination standing has prevented him from competing in varied tournaments, together with the US Open, all year long which induced him to drop via the rankings.    

It’s the prohibition from tournaments and consequent drop within the rankings that Wilander thinks will spur Djokovic on to play at his finest degree for longer, presumably even including years on to his profession.
