‘Novak Djokovic is so good for mental strength’, says top footballer

Former 22-time Grand Slam doubles champion Todd Woodbridge believes Nick Kyrgios is the player to watch at this year’s Wimbledon. Kyrgios, who reached his first and only Wimbledon quarter-final in 2014, loves to play on grass and it’s a surface he feels comfortable on against any player. Novak Djokovic, a six-time Wimbledon champion, has won the last three editions of the tournament. Woodbridge acknowledged that Djokovic is the player who can beat any player on grass and added that he feels the same way about Kyrgios. “Nick is really trained and focused this season, so this is a good start to the grass-court season. If there’s any player on the field outside of Novak who can play well enough and beat everyone on grass, it’s Nick.” Woodbridge said on the Nine Network’s Wide World of Sports. “It’s about how he deals with expectations as he goes this time around. He’s a legitimate force and he has a chance to go deeper at Wimbledon. It will depend on his draw.” We don’t want him to appear in Novak’s group, which is a possibility. But I think a semi is realistic this year. And if he gets there and his body is fine and his head is still on his shoulders, any anything can happen,” Woodbridge said.

Djokovic won 20 Grand Slam titles

With his rigorous journey and explicit mental strength, 20-time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic has swept millions of fans, as well as athletes, off their feet in the last decade and a half. “Michael Jordan, I like his mentality. And Novak Djokovic. He’s from Serbia and he’s definitely number one so I have always admired him. He’s a great champion. I want to find out more about how he has done certain things. He is so good for mental strength: how he deals with certain problems and how he can play seven matches in a row and overcome seven obstacles to win a Grand Slam,” Vlahovic said. Travis believes that the final Grand Slam of the year must include the three-time champion in the draw. According to Travis, the likes of  basketball player Kyrie Irving (including Djokovic), who have refused the vaccination will seem smarter by the day. Talking to FOX News, he says, “It’s a joke. So, I think this will end up getting resolved and Djokovic will play. And by the way, I still say he, Kyrie Irving, Aaron Rodgers, athletes who were brave enough to be frank about their lack of COVID vaccination status are going to continue to look smarter and smarter in the months and years ahead,” he added.
