Asked by the Serbian site Telegraph on the rise of Novak Djokovic after his victory in the Masters 1000 in Rome, Alex Corretja believes that the trigger came during the Belgrade tournament where the world number 1 lost in the final against Rublev after a fairly laborious week .
“I think his return did not take place in Rome, but in Belgrade. His return to his best level came in his matches against Kecmanovic and Djere. At that time, Novak showed he was ready for Roland Garros. Despite his defeat in Madrid against Alcaraz, I could see that he was ready. I won’t reveal the conversations with his coaches, but I was 100% sure he was going to win or reach the final in Rome. »
