Although at this point it already seems something “normal”, it is clear that the fact that three tennis players remained so long at the top of the ATP is out of any common scenario. Novak Djokovic is clearly the tennis player who has been established as number one in the world for the longest time, with his more than 350 weeks in the position of honor of the men’s ranking.
The Serbian tennis player, 35 years old and current number seven in the world, explained what he considers to be the key to success over a long period. “There is no key or secret that will solve this question. It is a combination of factors and elements that are part of your character, your ecosystem, how you have grown, who you are, how you train or your lifestyle.
All of this creates a complete image of success. That formula has worked for me, but I have tried to constantly innovate and evolve, since I do not believe in stagnation: there is regression or progression, so I always try to be on the side of progression”, valued the winner of 21 grand slams.
“This is something that I have tried, especially in recent years, because the youngest are increasingly motivated and hungry to lead this sport, such as Carlos Alcaraz. I always try to find new ways to keep my game at the top and to be able to compete and beat these players”, added the Serbian.
‘Nole’ has shown on countless occasions that his physical, mental and tennis strength make him the most dominant player in the last time in the ATP circuit.
Carlos Alcaraz shocked everyone
If Albert Ramos has clearly not raised crowds since the start of his career, he deserves to be a very regular player.
Current 40th player in the world, the Spaniard, barring disaster, will end a season for the seventh time in his career in the top 50. Recently interviewed by the Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo, the 34-year-old spoke in particular about the meteoric rise of his 19-year-old compatriot, Carlos Alcaraz.
“I know him very well and I also played against him. I never beat him (smiles). I lost a match, with a match point in my favor, at Roland Garros. Alcaraz is a great player. With a lot of power and very fast. If he doesn’t get injured, he will be a great player for many years.
Moreover, the fact that Novak Djokovic does not play every tournament has allowed Alcaraz to reach the number one spot.”
