On Saturday, Serbian legend Novak Djokovic became the only player to claim the Golden Masters crown (by winning all 14 Masters 1000 titles) twice by beating Canadian Milos Raonic 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to win the Western & Southern Open.
In addition to taking his career title to 80, the win added to his streak of 2020 triumphs at 23, a prospect that undoubtedly bolsters the morale and spirit of the US Open star.
Recently world number 1 Novak Djokovic has been in tandem with Canadian Vasek Pospisil and they are looking to represent male professional tennis players.
Immediately after his victory in New York, Djokovic made it clear that the duo were not working on a “union” and did not intend to boycott the current tour.
Novak Djokovic opens up about the new lineup
“We’re trying to get most of the players, we know that probably won’t be like that today, but we have to start somewhere. I wish I could count on Roger and Rafa, but I understand them. In my opinion, it’s the right time ” He said.
“Legally we are 100% sure and we are allowed to form the players association. This is not a union. This is a players association. So we don’t ask for boycotts. We are not forming parallel tours “, He added. (translated by Google Translate)
Also, currently, the association does not serve WTA players.
As Novak Djokovic played the Cincinnati Finals against Milos Raonic, his historical rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal tweeted the new player’s association taking root in the world of professional tennis.
“We have a bigger problem and separation and disunion are definitely not the solution”, Nadal tweeted. After his tweet, his friend and foe Roger Federer came out in support of Rafa and shared his thoughts on the same.
