Novak Djokovic’s father wants him to retire soon
The legendary tennis player Novak ‘Nole’ Djokovic’s father, Srdjan Djokovic, revealed his desire for his son to give up playing by the end of the 2024 tennis season. Srdjan conveyed his wishes in the heartfelt documentary ‘Novak Djokovic – Untold Stories.’ He stressed that Novak’s life encompasses more than just tennis and that he hopes to see him honored for his contributions outside of the sport.
Although Novak Djokovic, 37, has a record 23 Grand Slam victories among men, he accepts that it is now time for the younger generation to take the spotlight. After 30 years of unwavering devotion to tennis, Srdjan thinks his kid should take a break from the tough and difficult sport.
In contrast, Novak’s mother, Dijana, says that he is free to choose whenever he wants to retire because he has already accomplished everything. Novak’s family proudly sticks by his side as his career progresses, encouraging him on and off the court.
Novak Djokovic pulls out of Toronto Masters
The No. 2 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, has taken the difficult choice to skip the Toronto Masters due to exhaustion from his efforts at Wimbledon. Djokovic said he needs extra time to recover after a thrilling five-set final with Carlos Alcaraz. He has always loved his time in Canada, but he feels that he needs this sabbatical to be at his best. Djokovic thanked Tournament Director Karl Hale for being sympathetic to his choice and reiterated his desire to play in Toronto again in the future in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
The US Open at the end of August will be preceded by the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Toronto. Djokovic has won four titles in Toronto, although he hasn’t played there since 2018. Fans are displeased by his absence, although the event still features a strong roster of elite athletes.
However, Djokovic will be replaced in the draw by Christopher Eubanks, the remarkable American player who caused a stir at this year’s Wimbledon. Following triumphs at the Australian Open and Roland-Garros, Djokovic is now concentrating on his attempt to win a record-extending 24th Grand Slam singles championship at Flushing Meadows later in August.
