Filip Krajinovic opens up about potential Novak Djokovic return date

Novak Djokovic has opted out of the Indian Wells 2021 tournament. Nole, on the other hand, has stolen 1,800 points away from Medvedev following his loss in California.

Djoker currently has the upper hand over Daniil Medvedev, as he is more likely to compete in the Vienna Open and the ATP Finals in 2021.

As a result, he only has to defend 490 points: 90 in Vienna and 400 in Turin. Medvedev, on the other hand, will compete in the ATP Moscow and Paris Masters 2021, as well as the two previous tournaments.

He is also the defending champion in both the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals; as a result, he must defend 2,635 points: 1,500 in Turin, 1,000 in Paris, 45 in Moscow, and 90 in Vienna.

Djokovic may still be world No. 1 even if he fails to deliver in the 2021 ATP Finals, as Medvedev will lose a big number of points if he fails in Paris or Turin.

As a result, the Serbian legend has a chance to break Sampras’ record by the end of the year.

What did Krajinovic say?

Novak Djokovic is poised to return to action this season, according to Filip Krajinovic.

Krajinovic stated in an interview with Serbian daily Blic that the Serbian squad is keen to win the title, especially since Novak Djokovic will be present.

I would like to use the next three tournaments to raise my game before the Davis Cup,” Krajinovic said as per reports on Eurosport.

“We are going there with all the best players, so our goal is to lift the trophy, just like we did in 2010.

“Novak is with us, so we are surely not going there to lose. We made an agreement to play, all of us, we are eager to get that trophy.”

Without Zverev and Thiem, Filip Krajinovic believes Germany and Austria would be “significantly” weaker. While Serbia will have their strongest roster with Novak Djokovic.

“Without them (Zverev and Thiem), it is clear that Germany and Austria are significantly weaker, and we have our best possible line-up.

“The world No 1 is on our side and we are going there to win,” Krajinovic said.

“Usually, the success with the national team boosts our individual careers as well, so we are hoping that is going to be the case again now, before the 2022 season.”
