A difficult year with Nole forced to return to the field after months of absence and with a condition to be regained.
Despite this, the Balkan champion has achieved several successes, the most important is undoubtedly the Wimbledon tournament. A particular year with Nole who also dropped in the standings due to the decision of the Wimbledon organizers to freeze the ATP ranking.
In recent weeks Nole has fully returned to the circuit and has done it in the best way, winning the tournaments in Tel Aviv and Nur Sultan. Excellent news because in this way the tennis player will have the chance to participate in the ATP Finals in Turin, the last great event of this season.
