The last few days have reserved some surprises for Novak Djokovic, who used his social accounts to express his disappointment towards the ATP Awards and deny a news story circulating on X. Simone Vagnozzi and Darren Cahill won the award for Best Coach of the Year, but the Serbian would have preferred to see his coach Goran Ivanisevic triumph.

"Goran, I guess we would have to win all four Slams for you to perhaps be considered coach of the year. Ending the year as world number 1, winning three Grand Slam tournaments and the Finals, making history in this sport is not enough, my dear coach," wrote Djokovic.

The 36-year-old then had to label the news regarding the hoax as a hoax. his desire to purchase the Manolo Santana Racquets Club Tennis & Padel. "Fake Newk," he commented on X. It's just the tip of the iceberg: fake news is obviously bad for those, like us for example, who are committed every day to provide its readers with fresh and truthful news, a symptom of hard work, research and professionalism.

The post shared by X user @CristinaNcl said: "Novak Djokovic in negotiation with Manolo Santana's widow to buy the club and legacy of the tennis player The sports center in Marbella is the place that was once a temple of worship for Manolo Santana.

Now, run by his widow and his son, it's destroyed."

Fake news aside, Nole has returned to training

Djokovic has started preparing for next season. The Serbian champion has once again chosen Marbella as a base for his intense training, and it is there that he will continue to work hard before reaching Australia.

Djokovic has decided to change his program: in 2024 he will not defend the title in Adelaide but will start again from the United Cup. The Serbian will represent his country in the team competition created by the ATP. This will be the event he will take part in a few days after the Australian Open.
