One of Novak Djokovic's rivals to beat in this Australian Open could be Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard is one of the favorites as the number 2 and could only be measured against the Serbian in a hypothetical final. Today the Spaniard has gone from less to more, after suffering in the first set, but after winning in the tie-break has taken the direct and is already in the second round by beating Richard Gasquet, in a match that we have been able to follow here on VAVEL.

News - Novak Djokovic

The 36-year-old Serbian tennis player is world No. 1 and is at the top of the ATP ranking.


He has played in 2023 all the finals of a Grand Slam in one year, after winning the Australian Open, Roland Garros, reaching the final at Wimbledon and winning the US Open. He came into this tournament after winning the last Grand Slam of the year where he only dropped two sets during the entire tournament. He arrives after resting after missing the entire Asian tour. However, he took the last Masters 1000 of 2023 by winning in Paris, a place where last year he fell in the final. He was proclaimed champion of the ATP Finals despite losing in the group stage against Sinner. He was unable to become Davis Cup champion when he lost in the semifinals against Italy. Nole lost both his matches against the Italians, the singles and the doubles and thus closed the year. 

 

He started 2024 playing in the United Cup where he won in the group stage the singles matches against Zhang and Lehecka. While in the quarterfinals he was defeated against Alex de Miñaur. In a duel where the tennis player born in Belgrade was in discomfort and finally his team was eliminated. Although in his debut at the Australian Open he did not even feel the discomfort. The Serb had a strange debut against the debutant Dino Prizmic, who gave war and even won a set.  However, despite a bad day, the Belgrade player did not fail and will be in his appointment in the second round of the Australian Open.
