Djokovic's Coach Reveals He Went Missing After Loss To Sinner At ATP Finals

Djokovic's Coach Reveals He Went Missing After Loss To Sinner At ATP Finals

by Evita Mueller

Novak Djokovic is arguably the best tennis player of all time, which makes coaching him arguably the hardest coaching job of all time.

Imagine being a coach of the player who is arguably the best tennis player to have ever lived. What if you even say to him that he already doesn't know? Obviously, it's not that simple because Goran Ivanisevic is able to spot something Djokovic is not able to spot in real-time.

Input is always valuable, even though Djokovic proved himself to be the ultimate problem solver over the course of his career. Ivanisevic doesn't give too many interviews, but generally, when he does, he talks about Djokovic.

In a recent talk, he spoke about the dynamic between the coach and the player because it's not always smooth.

Who am I to get angry at him? He's the best player in the history of tennis. I can be only angry with him sometimes when he's yelling for no reason at us. When he loses the match, he's always giving his best and he's trying.

Per Craig Gabriel

It's been a roller coaster for Djokovic in the season's final month. He first played amazing tennis to win the Paris Masters but then ran into some problems at the ATP Finals, losing to Jannik Sinner in the group.

It was a tough loss for Djokovic because it put him in danger of being eliminated. According to Ivanisevic, Djokovic disappeared after his loss to Sinner as he generally takes losses pretty badly.

But it's not easy to deal with him when he's losing the match. On Tuesday night he finished late. On Wednesday we didn't see him at all. Till Thursday we didn't know what's happening, to be honest. We were in the room. We didn't know if we are going home, if we are going to the warm-up against (Hubert) Hurkacz. We were sitting, sitting. We finally find out that he's going to play.
