One of the most brutal players on this tour was world number 1, Novak Djokovic. Over the years, he has built a reputation for not matching his opponents like no other. The way the Serbian player covers the tennis courts makes it almost as if there are two players on his side of the court.The results obtained and the success of Novak Djokovic has been phenomenal in the last decade. It turns out that he is the only player in the modern era to have won four major tournaments in a row (Wimbledon 2015, US Open 2015, Australian Open 2016, French Open 2016).Novak Djokovic is spending quality time with his family in MarbellaAs the world enters the new year, the Grand Slam champion has traveled 17 times to Marbella, Spain. Serbs trained in the warmer climates rather than the snowy regions of Serbia.Since the much-needed break was fine after a somewhat erratic season, Djokovic decided to travel to the seaside location to relax. Even the world's No. 1 has bought properties in the area.After a disappointing season last year, the Serbian ace will surely look to bounce back next Australian Open season. He will also want to forget some of the episodes he played in the previous season, such as being disqualified for accidentally hitting a woman with the ball at the US Open.Also Read: Australia Open 2021 Champions to See a Drastic Change in Prize MoneyNovak Djokovic is the favorite at the Australian Open 2021It won't be long before the eight-time Australian Open champion leaves for Australia.

A match from the end of his bid for what would have been the calendar's first Grand Slam tournament in men's tennis since 1969, Novak Djokovic covered his face with a towel, hiding his tears during the changeover.In 27 Grand Slam matches in 2021, on hard courts, clay courts and grass, Djokovic is unbeatable. Needing one more victory, in Sunday's US Open final against Daniil Medvedev, to complete a season sweep for major titles and claim his 21st career record, Djokovic couldn't pull it off.Outplayed by someone using a similar style to his own, Djokovic came up just short of those two historic milestones, losing 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to first-time major champion Medvedev at Arthur Ashe Stadium.Also Read- Novak Djokovic outlives Stefanos Tsitsipas at French Open to win nineteenth majorA simply stunning performance from @DaniilMedwed pic.twitter.com/0sF1r2CiNg— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021No.1 ranked Djokovic had been sublime in the sport's top four tournaments, enduring the burdens of expectations and pressure for the past seven months and, in New York, the past two weeks. He beat Medvedev in the Australian Open final in February, then added titles at the French Open in June and Wimbledon in July.He made mistakes, 38 inadvertent mistakes in all. He couldn't convert the chance of a break until it was too small, too late, going just 1 for 6. He also showed frustration, destroying his racket by hitting it three times against the court after one point, drawing boos from the crowd of 25,703 and a code violation from chair umpire Damien Dumusois. List of players to defeat Novak Djokovic in a Grand Slam in 2021:Daniil Medvedev-end of list-— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021Much of Djokovic's troubles had to do with No. 2 ranked Medvedev, who used his 6-foot-6(1.98meter) frame to chase everything and respond with seemingly effortless groundstrokes, in the same way. that Djokovic wears down foes, and delivered pinpoint serving. Medvedev won 20 of his first 23 service points, forming a pattern. He finished with 16 aces and 38 winners in total, 11 wins more than Djokovic. After overcoming several double faults at match point, Medvedev finally finished the job, then toppled over to the court on his side. Djokovic reached the 31st Grand Slam final, equaling the record of six victories on the hard court at Flushing Meadows. But he couldn't get the last thing he needed. He remains tied with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with 20 major titles. And the last man to complete a true Grand Slam going 4-4 at the majors in a single season remains Rod Laver, who did it twice, in 1962 and 1969, and was in the stands on Sunday. The last woman to achieve this feat was Steffi Graf in 1988. Instead, Djokovic joined Jack Crawford in 1933 and Lew Hoad in 1956 as men who won the first three Grand Slam tournaments over a year and reached the U.S. Open final before losing. Djokovic came out a bit cold Sunday, double faulted in each of his first two service games and mixed enough groundstroke fouls bowing his head or rolling his eyes after some that 12 minutes, Medvedev was a point from a second break and a 3-0 lead. Djokovic eventually used a couple of aces at 117 mph and 124 mph to hold there, but it was Medvedev who stole the show in the early going. It was the fifth consecutive match in which Djokovic lost the first set, and 11th in Grand Slam play this year, but unlike other cases, he was unable to win again. This moment though pic.twitter.com/dgvqLMpdBv— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021Djokovic got to love-40 in Medvedev’s first service game of the second set but did not come through on any of those break points. On the third, Djokovic put a sliced backhand in the net, then pounded his racket against his left thigh — one, two, three, four times, perhaps as disappointed in his footwork as anything. Thousands of fans tried to reinforce him by chanting his nickname "No-Le! No-Le! No-Le!" After some of Medvedev's mistakes, some in the stands would applaud, considered poor form in tennis and repeatedly admonished with a “please” from Dumusois.Also Read- Taliban set to ban womens sports in Afghanistan, claims report
