Djokovic takes power again

"Madrid has returned you to your site, Just when I needed it most ..."


Novak Djokovic started his 251st week on Monday as number one of the world tennis, the 29th consecutive in this third stage of reign. The throne has not been compromised during the current season. On the contrary, it has settled down because Rafa Nadal, his most immediate pursuer, is not managing to defend his arsenal of points on clay. Even so, Nole was worried, because since his triumph at the Australian Open he had passed a slump in results, with premature eliminations in Indian Wells, Miami and Montecarlo, in which he fell in the second round, eighth and quarterfinals, respectively ... Some positions to which he is not accustomed, nor are they up to his world leadership. Madrid has returned him to his site, just when he needed it the most: with Roland Garros on the horizon.

All the champions have highs and lows. And the ability to get out of them increases their greatness. There is always a moment of no return, but you can not see Nole. This has happened to a Andy Murray, with irreversible injuries. Y Roger Federer may be on the way, just for a matter of age. Perhaps also Nadal, as shaken in his physique as Martin del Potro has been. We've all seen them come back, but someday they will not. Djokovic's case this year has been a simple parenthesis, as he has shown in Madrid, where he beat the feared earthling Thiem and the emerging Tsitsipas. The trophy was accompanied by his 33rd victory in Masters 1,000, a top that only shares with Rafa. A success that reaches two weeks from Paris, where it will look for another brand: its fourth consecutive Grand Slam.
