I don’t really know anymore what superlative can be used to talk about Novak Djokovic? He won the Masters while breaking a new record by becoming the first player to win the Masters tournament seven times. I found the Serb at the peak of his physical form despite his 36 years. Before, I found him quite thin. There I have the impression that he has gained muscle mass. In this tournament, as often, when he should be at the top of his form, he was. In the semi-final, Carlos Alcaraz did not find a single solution to avoid defeat. The Spaniard seemed completely lost in the face of Nole’s strength and speed. For the final, I was ready to put both hands on fire that the Serbian was going to beat Sinner. Seeing Djokovic lose twice in the same week against the same player is just impossible. For a set and a half, the world number one lived on cloud nine. He only lost two points on his engagement with 87% winning points on his first serve and 100% on his second, it’s crazy, it bordered on perfection. The tactical choices were the right ones, the movements were well executed and mentally he was present, very present. When Nole wants to show that he is the boss in important moments, he manages to sublimate himself and increase his level of play. You have the impression that nothing can happen to him.
