Novak Djokovic could repeat what he did last year by winning three of the four majors and multiple Masters 1000 titles however the success of his season will ultimately be defined by his success at Roland Garros and Rio.
The world number one has had some interesting and slightly surprising defeats on the clay this season. The world number one’s clay court season began with the defeat to Jiri Vesely in Monte-Carlo which no one saw coming probably not even Jiri himself! A few weeks later he defeats Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals of Rome before coming up against an excellent Andy Murray in the final of Rome and a week or so Roland Garros to lose a major final is not ideal.
These two weeks for Novak in Paris could be the most intense of his career. All eyes of the tennis world will be on the world number in Paris the pressure is on him, he missed out last year and is still searching for that Roland Garros title.
Likewise with the Olympics which will be another tough and intense week for the world number one who you never know this might be his last chance at winning Olympic Gold as a lot can happen in four years on the tennis tour.
However the Olympics is a while away right now and Roland Garros is around the corner. Will failure to win either or both tournaments be a successful season for Novak even if he finished the season with three majors once again and a handful of Masters 1000 titles to his name.
Let’s wait and see what happens…
