Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz have been making headlines in the tennis world in recent months, with both players trading the world No. 1 spot. However, former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli believes there is no question about who the true world No.1 is – and that is Novak Djokovic.

Bartoli made her comments during the latest episode of Match Points, Tennis Majors’ panel discussion show. With 22 Grand Slam titles under his belt, Djokovic is one of the greatest players of all time. He has won every Grand Slam tournament at least twice, and he holds the record for the most weeks spent as world No. 1. Djokovic’s consistency and dominance on the tour make him a deserving world No. 1.

Alcaraz, on the other hand, is a rising star who has shown great potential in his young career. He won his first ATP title at the age of 19, and he has been impressing tennis fans with his powerful game and fearless attitude. However, he has only won one Grand Slam match so far, and he has a long way to go before he can match Djokovic’s accomplishments.

“It’s great to see that those kids are taking over and making sure the ATP has a really bright future ahead,” she said. Looking ahead to the clay season and Wimbledon, Bartoli is curious to see how Djokovic and Alcaraz will perform against each other. If they go toe to toe, she wonders who will come out on top. It will be an intriguing battle between a seasoned champion and a young upstart, and tennis fans around the world will be watching closely.

Novak Djokovic’s claims of being able to choose best tournaments to play backfire at Monte Carlo Masters

Novak Djokovic, the current world No. 1 in men’s tennis, found himself in an uncomfortable position after his first match in five weeks at the Monte Carlo Masters. Before the match, the Serbian had suggested that he can choose at which tournaments he plays to his best ability and that he doesn’t need to play “intensively” at most events in order to perform well when it matters at Grand Slams.

However, in his match against qualifier Ivan Gakhov, Djokovic’s words seemed to backfire as he struggled to find his form. Gakhov took Djokovic to a tiebreak in the first set but ultimately lost 7-6. Djokovic managed to win the second set 6-2, but it was far from the dominant performance that many had expected from the 22-time Grand Slam champion.

Djokovic’s comments before the match raised eyebrows among fans and pundits alike, with some questioning whether he was being overly confident or underestimating his opponents. The Monte Carlo Masters is an important tournament in the lead-up to the French Open, and Djokovic’s lackluster performance in his first match could be a cause for concern.
