It’s unfair that he can’t play the Australian Open and the US Open. The outbreak of war in Ukraine has complicated the situation for Russian and Belarusian tennis players, making 2022 one of the most turbulent years in tennis history.”
Annabel analyzed Nole’s prospects: “The Serbian is still the strongest player in the world. Despite everything he went through in 2022, he managed to win Wimbledon and qualify for the ATP Finals. The way he defeated Nick Kyrgios in London was impressive.
Kyrgios did the best he could in this tournament showing fantastic tennis, but Novak was able to neutralize him.”
