“I think everyone knows that love has not been lost for a while. I think he was healthy for the sport. I think every time we played, there was a lot of talk around. ”
“I felt like I was the only player who stood up for him at the Australian Open,” he said. “I feel it’s a place of respect.”
Speaking after the semi-final win over Cameron Norry, Jokovich agreed that the relationship between the players had improved.
“I don’t know if I can still call it bromance, but we definitely have a better relationship than we did before January this year,” he said.
But when it was very difficult for me in Australia, he was one of the very few players who came out and helped me and stood by me. It’s something I really appreciate. So I respect that very much.
So let’s take a look back at the wild rides.
Three years ago, Nick Kyrgyz said that it would be like a celebration of Novak Djokovic if he beat Serbia for the third time in a row.
“The holidays kill me. They kill me all the time, ”Kyrgyz told Ben-Rotenberg, a well-known tennis journalist. There are no remaining tests Podcast in 2019.
“Actually, this is what I’m going to do next time. That was so funny.
Some time ago, a sincere Kirgius Jokovich said that he had a “sick obsession that wants to be loved.”
“He wants to be like Roger,” Kirgius said.
“I personally don’t care, I’m here now, I can’t stand him because he wants to be loved. All of this is just as frightening as it is after winning a match. It’s shocking.
“He’s an incredible (tennis player), he’s a sports champion, he’s one of the great things we see. In fact, I think he gets the big man, I think he’s better than Federer.
Now, in the last few months, after tensions eased ahead of Sunday’s Wimbledon final, we can see that Kirgos once had a rivalry.
It will be the first and the last for Kirgos.
Jokovich? Well, he got his name 20 and after chasing home the first two successes of the year, he is chasing Rafa Nadal, who extended his lead to 22.
Sunday’s final will be their third, but crucial, five in a row.
In 2017 (the only year after 2011 that Jokovich failed to win) in the High Court, Kirgius won both matches in two sets.
That is why Kyrgyz Djokovic did not believe that a goat could win the tennis crown.
“No matter how great a prize he won, it would never be great just because I played it twice and, sorry, if you can’t beat me, then you are not the greatest,” says Kyrgyz. There are no tests left Podcast.
“When you look at my daily routine and how much I train and how much I eat, it’s zero compared to it.
“For me, Federer is always better than ever. Hands down. He did everything on all fronts. What Rafa (Nadal) did was awesome. I know how much Roland Garros has won, maybe 11 or so? But he put the game on the grass. He is very crazy.
“But Jokovich, I do not know, again, he deceives me. He says he has to say what he always hears, he never says what he thinks.
During the CVD-19 epidemic, Kyrgyz was one of the most talented athletes in the world, playing with other Jokovic and putting himself ahead of others.
Jokovich of Australia called his decision to stay in the exhibition “bones.”
He then beat the others in the tennis fraternity to the parties, saying, “This cake will take.”
Asked by the world’s No. 1 players to ease the quarantine limits for players, Kirgius called Jokovic a “tool” before the Australian Open in 2021.
However, as he was accustomed to doing with Kirgius, Australia’s hurricane forecast for the first time since the first quarter of Wimbledon in 2014 is unpredictable.
Tensions between the two have eased this year, with Kyrgyzus defending himself in the face of Serbs in the run-up to this year’s Australian Open.
Kyrgyz described Jokovich’s situation as “shocking” and criticized the current immigration minister, Alex Hawk.
“Hawk says it is a threat to our borders. Ah, no, it seems to be a weapon of mass destruction right now, ”said Kyrgyz.
“He came here to play tennis, he doesn’t do anything to anyone.
“For the past two years, the abuse in Melbourne has been horrific. I understand his anger at not getting the vaccine and getting medical treatment, but if you look at the price, he got the paperwork.
“Novak and I now have a romance. We are men now. I can’t wait until the end of Osia’s winter and we can play ball. The party after Melbourne will be nuts. I rent a house and just go. ”
Kyrgyz Djokovic said that he was “thankful” for his support during the Australian Open.
“I was not the one waiting in the media to catch his back. As a human, he obviously felt very naked. “As a person, that’s a dangerous place – when you feel the world is on you, when you feel like you can’t do anything right.” There are no boundaries Podcast.
Shortly afterwards, Jokovich Kyrgyz said, “I was amazed” by the support he received during the Australian Open.
The 20-time peace champion was criticized by the Australian for his behavior throughout the English club, and came to the Kyrgyz defense at Wimbledon earlier.
It comes after a tumultuous opening week in which spectator spat and waged a vicious war with Greek fourth-generation Stephen Pusipas.
However, Jokovich Kirgius said it was good for the sport and said the abusive Australian was “right” if nothing else.
“With Kyrgyz, you often see things like this in court,” Jokovich said. Sports Club.
“It’s always fun, but on the other hand, it may not be too much for the opponent. The reality is he is and he pays a lot of attention to tennis whether one likes it or not. I’ve seen him attract young people who follow him, love him, and love him because he’s different and he plays like that – and I don’t think that’s bad for our sport.
“In some cases, his out-of-court comments may be controversial, but that is the real Kyrgyz – and I respect that. Although he has said bad things about me for years, he has stood by me again in Australia – and when it was very difficult for me, he was one of those who publicly spoke in favor of me and helped me – and I thank him for that.
