Marc Anthony at Maestro Cares annual golf tournament At Miami’s renowned Biltmore hotel, we are with music icon Marc Anthony and TV personality Matt James for the second annual Maestro Cares golf tournament. The event brings celebrities and supporters together to raise money to help fulfill the foundation’s mission to improve the quality of living for disadvantaged children in Latin America and United States.
The Serb spoke in the after-match press conference following his quarterfinal loss to Holger Rane at the Italian Open. Novak Djokovic remained calm and confident despite the loss. He also remembered Rafael Nadal as his main rival and didn’t rule him out of the race for the title.
It is unclear whether Rafael Nadal would play at Roland Garros. The Spaniard’s final decision is awaited by everyone, including Nadal and Djokovic.
Rafael Nadal withdrew from all the clay court events leading up to the French Open. The French Open starts next Monday, which is May 22nd. Nadal will soon be confirmed as a participant. Djokovic, who has competed in several clay events this year, will not be able to win a French Open title.
Novak Djokovic has also named Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune and other possible Roland Garros Champions as Carlos Alcaraz
Djokovic joked that there would be a new champion only if Rafael Nadal did not play. However, he still believes in the potential of the next generation of players. Djokovic stated, ” But beside him (Rafael Nadal), Alcaraz and Rune are in the running, they’re some of the most likely to win the title.” For the second time, Holger Rune defeated Djokovic on a large stage. In 2022, he had also lost to the 20-year old Dane at the Paris Masters. Djokovic is a huge fan of Rune and has great faith in him as a player.
Novak Djokovic stated, “A new player generation has already arrived.” I mean, Alcaraz is No. “I believe that tennis is about to undergo a major change as the baton will be passed on from one generation of players to the next. Djokovic said in a philosophical manner, ” we can expect the moment to come, when you have a shift of generation.”
