Novak Djokovic – Solid Service 3.0

(UNDER CONSTRUCTION) Serbian tennis hero Novak Djokovic (*1987 / SRB) is, after a fantastic 2nd half of 2018, in my personal opinion, well-deserved firmly back on the tennis throne and successfully claiming the position as one of the very best players in the history of the Open era of tennis. Novak is then not the genius artist like Roger Federer or the player with sheer endless power like Rafael Nadal, he is just a very smart consistent fighter with a very solidly brushed technique and a very well controlled game.

Novak’s service is then not making the biggest headlines, but since he found back to a good service rhythm during the spring of 2018, he can rely on it quite well again. His highly solid 1st service fulfills very well all the requirements of a great Service 3.0 with a helix form.
