Ivanisevic warns Djokovic’s rivals as season ends: “Now he's even better. Now he always wants to improve”

Goran Ivanisevic has warned the ATP Tour ahead of next year claiming that the Serbian will be even better next year.

Djokovic missed a lot of time this year due to various factors but he'll be back next year and Ivanisevic believes Djokovic will be even better. The Serbian finished off the year with a superb performance at the ATP Finals where he won the trophy by beating Casper Ruud in straight sets in the final.

Ivanisevic said:

“He's practising even harder than when he was 22. That's why he's still so good and that's why he's still going to be even better. The will to practice, the will to improve, the will to be better is amazing. He's taking care of his body."

The Croatian also drew parallels to his time:

“In my time we stopped tennis [aged] 30, 31. You were already [an] old guy ready to leave. But now [it is] unbelievable. Look at Roger couple years back. Look at Rafa [Nadal]. Look at him. They all talk about, yes, young players are coming. It's great for the tennis….You have [the] youngest No. 1 in the world who made unbelievable things this year, Carlos [Alcaraz]."

He concluded with:

“But look at Novak. He's still hungry, he's still winning the tournaments, playing unbelievable tennis. He's still already thinking now about preparation for next season. He's [a] guy who wants to improve all the time. He's taking care of his body. Look at how he moves on the court, slides. He's amazing."
