Djokovic will surpass Nadal & Federer in this special record by the end of 2020

Overcoming Nadal and Federer, Djokovic heads for an unprecedented record in history.

In the last Roland Garros final, Novak Djokovic failed completely after 3 sets against rival Rafael Nadal. The above result caused Nole to increase the gap above 3 Grand Slam (17 and 20).

However, on the ATP rankings, the Serbian player still holds the number 1 position in the world with 11,740 points, 1890 points more than the person behind Rafael Nadal.

Recently, Djokovic said he would drop the Paris Masters award-winning prize in early November to attend the Vienna Open in Austria under the ATP Tour 500. This is Nole’s global plan to maintain the No. 1 position in the year 2020.

With the goal of winning 500 more points here, Djokovic will drop the Paris Masters of the ATP Masters 1000. This can be considered as the correct choice in ATP’s temporary scoring system for 2019 and 2020 due to the impact of Covid-19.

As the current current Paris Masters champion, Djokovic won’t earn any extra points if he participates in this tournament. So at the same time he chose to return to Vienna, where the Serbian star has not played in the past 13 years.

In the event of the end of 2020 at No. 1, Djokovic will become the first player after Pete Sampras to hold the top of the ATP group in his six years, something that even Federer and Nadal have not done yet (2 This superstar has only achieved achievements in 5 years).

Beginning in 2020, Djokovic made a very favorable step when he won his eighth title at the Australian Open and was also the 17th Grand Slam. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the 33-year-old player also won another title in Dubai. However, the defeat at the US Open as well as the failure at Roland Garros greatly affected Djokovic’s overall performance.

In the Schweizer Illustrierte interview, the Swiss player has not confirmed he will attend his first Grand Slam next season: “I am on the right track, I am not under pressure. I will only decide when I return to tournaments. if I hit 100% stamina It looks like I might be back for the 2021 Australian Open, though that is not fully confirmed yet.

I am currently training for resistance and the truth is I no longer feel knee pain. I will have to see how the recovery plays out in the coming weeks”, the 39-year-old closed.

One stick behind Lincicome and Tan is the T3 of Cydney Clanton, Danielle Kang, former world number one Lydia Ko, Linnea Strom, Carlota Ciganda and Gaby Lopez.

Strom’s Swedish compatriots, Anna Nordqvist and Pernilla Lindberg, are standing T9 (-1), next to Matilda Castren and Yang Amy.

In the T3 group, Ciganda and Lopez were positive for nCoV. Lopez became infected before the LPGA Tour rematched in late July and Ciganda was discovered in June. Lopez showed mild symptoms, only dry throat and fatigue for a few days while Ciganda was positive for five consecutive weeks. Both own two LPGA Tour titles.

The defending champion Hannah Green scored a catastrophic score when he started defending the title. She hit 79 strokes, of which five bogeys, two double bogeys. Last year, Green won at -9 at Hazeltine, par72, earning $ 577,500.

Aronmink is a par70 golf course, 6,577 yards long – the professional women’s golf standard with a green speed of 11.5 for this week’s major event. But in the opening round, the organizers reduced the pitch by 38 yards by pushing the teeing ground closer to the green across all 18 holes. With wind speeds ranging from 16 to 24 km / h almost all day, this stage recorded 132 players playing, but only 12 players “under par” in which Lincicome and Tan reached the peak of -3.

Kang belongs to group -2. After the round, she received the pit position distribution board from the organizers at 9 o’clock and mulled it over to plan the next day’s fighting strategy. “I checked each position of the flag, applied the forecast of wind speed and visualized the tactical possibilities. For hole 8, par3, I hit my imagination seven times and considered using a hybrid club feature. wood – iron for the next round. With this club, if the wind is strong, I still hit 176 yards. Today, I use the number 4 iron, “Kang said on Golf Digest.

The 8-hole teeing ground is high so golfers are caught up in the wind and find it difficult to choose clubs to bring the ball to the green below. Kang birdie hole 8 first round. She won this major event at -13 in 2017. At that time, the tournament was held at Olympia Fields Stadium, par71.

She returned to play and finished T18 in the Tournament of Champions earlier this year, but then went on a reluctant translation vacation. And when the American arena reopened, Lincicome passed seven leagues but never finished higher than T45.

And Tan has yet to finish higher than 30, like in the US Women’s Open’s 2016 in previous majors. The 26-year-old Malaysian Golfer is also looking for his first title at the LPGA Tour. Even so, she is still optimistic about the win in Pennsylvania, as eight of the recent nine major champions have all made their first place on the podium.
