Novak Djokovic: "Roland Garros? I'm the favorite"

Novak Djokovic played a great week at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in Rome and he obtained a beautiful as well as clear victory in the final over the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, stretched out in the final with the result of 6-0 7-6.

The Serbian tennis player maintained the first position in the ranking and won his first tournament of 2022 in Rome. At the end of the match, in a press conference, Nole explained his emotions: "I could not dream of a better week than this, I knew that in Rome I would have found my peak of form and that's how it went.

After what I experienced at the beginning of the season, it was essential for me to win a high-level tournament and it served to show that I can aim clearly for the victory of Roland Garros." The Serbian then goes back to everything that happened in Australia:" I see every situation that comes before me as fuel for the next challenge, in general I always try to turn the page quickly.

I had never experienced something like that in Australia, but that's enough. I feel fresh physically and mentally."

Novak Djokovic talks about his physical condition

Nole then talked about his current physical condition: "In Monte Carlo and in Belgrade I was not at my best, but that was due to the illness I had in recent months.

In Madrid I played in excellent conditions and I think that in the defeat against Alcaraz I was already at the best of my form, but he played a great game and deserved the victory. Favorite for the Roland Garros? Both for the ranking and for this tournament I can say that I am a favorite for the final victory.

Obviously the Grand Slam tournaments are a separate case, they are played once every two days and they are played over five sets, so everything is different, but I think, feeling my feelings, that I will go very far." At the Roland Garros 2022 also Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz will come back on the court.
