Like Dominic Thiem, Novak Djokovic also said goodbye to the ATP Cup in the group stage. Even the failure of Nole and the Serbian team is harder to “swallow” because they are the defending champions.
However, in terms of individuals, the number 1 player in the world still has a good performance with 2 wins in singles content (winning Shapovalov from Canada and Alexander Zverev of Germany). On the other hand, being eliminated early from the ATP Cup also created conditions for Djokovic to have more time to rest to prepare for the Australian Open.
Jeremy Chardy is not a difficult obstacle for Djokovic in the first match. In the past, the two players met 13 times, the victory belonged to Nole. A victory, even an overwhelming victory after 3 sets, is completely within his reach if he plays properly.
