The recent advance to the semifinals of the Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, in the Australian Open tournament, promoted him from fifth to second place in the ranking World Cup, led by the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz.

The great feat of their performance is that they have won their last 39 games, 26 of them on Melbourne grounds. In this last event he defeated the Norwegian Casper Ruud and the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, second and third in the world, respectively. He also beat the Russian Andrey Rublev, sixth racket on the world list.

The clear purpose of the Balkan is to recover the world number one, for which he is two victories away from the title, which would be 22, equaling the top of the Spanish Rafael Nadal. He also accumulates participation in 44 Grand Slam semifinals, only preceded by the Swiss Roger Federer (46), while Nadal has 38, according to the newspaper Marca.

Djokovic has won 242 matches over his entire career against opponents ranked in the top ten of the ranking. That work includes the last 26 challenges at the Australian Open, to match the number owned by Andre Agassi.

“I’ve missed tennis on rest days, but the important thing is to recover for the matches,” said the renewed Djokovic, who had high praise for his physio Milan Amanovic.
