Almost two years after his last North American match, Djokovic is now celebrating his return to the United States in Cincinnati. The three-time winner could start again this year at the US Open in September.
Before starting his Masters match in Cincinnati, Djokovic said, “I enjoy the freedom of being able to choose where I want to play.” He deliberately chose the tournament to prepare for the US Open. Ahead of his first game on US soil since 2021, he was “excited”.
American tennis fans actually filled the court during his first training sessions in Cincinnati. Djokovic himself admits: “It was amazing.” The atmosphere was almost like a match.
Exactly one month after his last defeat at Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic returned to the tour on Wednesday against Davidovich Fokina. Before that, he confirmed that even after 20 years on tour, I still feel very motivated. The world number two says, “I want to keep winning tournaments.”
If he succeeds in winning the tournament in Cincinnati, as in his last participation in 2020, a return to the top of the world rankings will appear. At the latest after the US Open, the 36-year-old should return to the tennis throne. While he has no points defense, last year’s winner Alcaraz lost 2,000 points.
