Serbian tennis player Filip Krajinovic acknowledged in words collected by Blic that his participation in the Australian Open 2022 is in the air when he knows the plans that the organization of the tournament has to be able to play. If they impose quarantine periods of 14 days, many players have decided not to play in the first Grand Slam of the season. After having lost to Daniil Medvedev in the past Indian Wells 2021, Filip Krajinovic’s head was not playing in Moscow, a tournament where he was on the entry list and in which it was his head to resign, but the loss of Daniil Medvedev changed everything: “Although I was signed up for the Moscow tournament in my head I was not playing the tournament, really. I had planned to play in Vienna, Paris and the Davis Cup, but Medvedev withdrew from Moscow. This caused me to to enter the main draw as the fourth seed and thus not play in the first round. I had a couple more days to rest, so I finally decided to play it. It was a shame to fall to Pedro Martínez at the first exchange”. A week ago he confirmed the presence of Novak Djokovic in the Davis Cup and again reaffirmed it: “We will have the best possible team to try again to win the salad bowl as we did in 2010. We will travel led by Novak Djokovic and certainly we are not going to lose. We have all agreed to do our best in order to win the tournament. We will have four or five days of training in Belgrade to strengthen the team spirit and then we will travel to Austria. I don’t know exactly when that mini-concentration will be, since there are players who play until the end of the season,” concluded Krajinovic, who sees Serbia as one of the teams with the most chances of winning the Davis Cup.
Lorenzo Sonego comments on Djokovic
Recently, Italian tennis player Lorenzo Sonego spoke on Novak Djokovic and him being unable to go the distance and win the final Grand Slam event of the season. Lorenzo felt that the pressure got to Nole, and he’s only human as well. However, he did not wish to take any credit from the World No. 1 player and complimented him on the success he has enjoyed this year. Not many players are capable of winning three Grand Slam titles in a single season. The Italian player spoke on this and stated, “Nole has shown that we are all human beings and that the pressure is very difficult to manage. If no one has been able to do it in the past 50 years, there must be a reason. And anyway, winning three Grand Slams and making the final in the last one is something that only phenomena can achieve.”
