“It’s hard to design a tactic against Novak Djokovic,” says ATP ace
The multinational Cosentino Group and the Mutua Madrid Open consolidate their association and have renewed the sponsorship agreement whereby the Spanish firm will be the main sponsor of the tournament for another year. In this way, the Mutua Madrid Open will be this edition, in which it celebrates its 20th anniversary, the most “top” tournament of the ATP circuit.
Cosentino will once again cover the main spaces of the Caja Mágica de Madrid, an avant-garde facility that will host the tournament, with the decorative solutions of its Silestone® and Dekton® brands, as well as the realization of different activities for its customers, partners and employees.
The signing of the extension of the agreement took place today at Cosentino City Madrid, the company’s showroom located in the heart of the city. The Almería company attended the meeting with the presence of Eduardo Cosentino, Global Vice President of Sales of the Cosentino Group and CEO of Cosentino North America, while the tournament was represented by Gerard Tsobanian, CEO and President of the Mutua Madrid Open; and tournament director Feliciano López.
During the conversation with the ATP, Casper Ruud pointed out how inscrutable Novak Djokovic’s athleticism makes him.
Djokovic will play Serbia Open next week
Casper Ruud recently explained the nuances of Novak Djokovic’s tennis, highlighting how the Serbian is extremely complete and has an all-around game.
“He (the Serbian) plays a bit differently to Rafa,” said Casper Ruud. “He plays a bit further up the court and the thing with Novak is that his backhand is so pure and so good, that even though many clay court players like Rafa like to push their opponent’s backhand because it It’s tough with the high rebound, with the heaviness, Novak resists better than anyone because he has such good control with his backhand.”
Ruud reckons the Serbian’s game is so solid that it’s hard to imagine a tactic against him. “It’s hard to find holes in his game and his forehand isn’t a weakness either, so he can produce winners and good defensive shots from both sides all the time,” Ruud added.
“He has the package where you can’t really rest in any corner of the pitch when you play against him because either he plays with his backhand and he will push you with him and also with his forehand he can produce great different angles and shots.”
