‘Novak Djokovic has done something incredible this year,’ says Marian Vajda

Novak Djokovic has achieved something ‘incredible’ this year by equalling Pete Sampras year-end world number one record, says coach Marian Vajda.

Djokovic finished the year in disappointing fashion as he was beaten by lucky loser Lorenzo Sonego in Vienna and then went out in the ATP Finals at the semi-final stage.

The Serbian has also had to deal with a lot of criticism for his ill-fated Adria Tour, his US Open defaulting, and him leading a breakaway player’s union.

However, it was still a fine year for Djokovic, who won the Australian Open, got to the final of the French Open, and won two Masters titles too.

And, according to Vajda, it is important that we don’t lose what a landmark year it has been for Djokovic in terms of achievement.

“Novak has done something incredible, being the year-end world number one for a sixth time is a fantastic achievement,” Vajda said.

“He has met the goal he set at the beginning of the season.

“I appreciate that he achieved successful results even after the restart of the season. I was a little worried about how his fitness, he also overcame the coronavirus

“The tournament in New York was unfortunate due to the disqualification, otherwise he could have gotten far there as well.

“At the French Open, Rafa gave an excellent performance in the finals, he had an incredible length of strokes. Novak was not completely in his element.”
