Tennis Today: Novak Djokovic makes big surprise decision ahead of Australian Open campaign

Novak Djokovic disappointed

In Tennis Today, Novak Djokovic has done a massively un-Djokovic thing, and the great Andy Murray content just keeps on coming. 

What’s on the site
Andy Murray is still dominating the news, and that is absolutely fine by us. His media tour to promote Resurfacing is continuing at pace and that has meant lots of great insight.

He has been talking about the ‘farewell’ video played for him at the Australian Open last year, and says it confused him for one very big reason.

Murray has also said he believes he can use the current top three players as inspiration, especially the one still playing great tennis at 38-years-old.

However, he has dismissed suggestions that chasing those three are what caused him such injury problems in the first place.

In non-Andy Murray news, Roger Federer has been backed to win another Grand Slam by someone who won a few herself back in the day.

What’s in the news
Novak Djokovic has shocked everyone by appearing to break with his usual scheduling to commit to a packed start to 2020.

Djokovic rarely plays the week before a Grand Slam. In fact, he has only done it once in the last ten years – when he played Eastbourne the week before Wimbledon in 2017.

However, he has signed up to play the ATP 250 event in Adelaide the week before the Australian Open next month.

Djokovic will also play the ATP Cup for Serbia the week before Adelaide, and Mubadala World Tennis Championships in Abu Dhabi just before Christmas.

Meanwhile, Kei Nishikori has appointed Max Mirnyi to his coaching team ahead of what he hopes to be a big 2020 for him.

”I am excited about the opportunity to have a chance and help Kei,” Mirnyi said, as per Tennishead.

“I have known Kei for a long time from the days of my active playing career. Training and spending a lot of time at the IMG Academy in Bradenton.

“So, I hope that this progression will be natural for both of us personally and on a professional level.”
