Former world number 1, American Andy Roddick expressed concern about Novak Djokovic’s future on his new podcast Served with Andy Roddick. The Serb was defeated with authority in the semi-final of the Australian Open by Jannik Sinner.

“He kind of stumbled a little bit in this tournament, through no fault of his own, but the guy is still better than anyone on the entire planet, that’s not going to change, but I’m a little worried that he won’t get younger. When you gain years everything it happens very quickly, you also have rivals who can beat you, this new generation that knows they can beat them and will not give up, the mentality that there is no way to defeat them will not return”, explains Andy.

This new generation was already seen last year, although it is gaining more and more strength with Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner on the cover. Although they know it will not be an easy task, the young tennis players are realizing that there are possibilities of beating it: “I think it will be a question of mental acuity and how it develops. For 10 years I didn’t worry about Novak playing in Indian Wells, Miami or any hard court tournament. It’s not as important as the Slams, and he’s managed to get to these tournaments, play well and get the results. I’m very curious to see how he comes out of Indian Wells and Miami, how he handles the pressure after defeat on the big stage.”

“He’s usually good at finding someone to fight with and using that as a tool to move forward. Honestly, we’ve all been there. Novak is much less so than the rest of us, that’s why he is who he is. The rest of us are in our garages making podcasts. Your ability to find a way to motivate yourself is also a superpower.”
