Tennis legend Novak Djokovic recently suffered a big defeat against Tabilo during the third round of the Italian Open 2024, which took place in Rome. The Serbians suffered the greatest loss against Chile by 2-6, 3-6. However, Tabilo is the first Chilean ever in tennis history to have outclassed world number one.

Notably, six-time winner Novak Djokovic has failed to reach the quarterfinals in Rome for the first time since 2006. However, the 36-year-old, who has yet to reach the finals this year, sets out to defend his French Open title, which will start on May 26.

In the same vein, here are the three reasons why Novak Djokovic can win the upcoming marquee event:

#3: Great ability to bounce back

Novak Djokovic has recently suffered a shocking defeat in the third round of the Italian Open 2024, which took place in Rome. Notably, the Serbian star has the great ability to mark his comeback at an upcoming event.

The 36-year-old star was extremely disappointed after losing in the third round in Rome, but he possesses a great ability to make a comeback.

#2: Great Match Experience with Ideal Records

The defending champion Novak Djokovic won the title in 2016, 2012, and 2023, and he has set his eyes on winning in the upcoming event as well. Novak Djokovic has had magnificent records in the past, especially in big matches.

The Serbian has a record of 24 Grand Slam men's singles titles, featuring three French Open titles. Overall, he has 98 singles titles with a 71 big title record.

#1: He aims to continue his world number-one rank

The 36-year-old needs to enter the finals of the French Open 2024 to continue to keep his world number one rank. Notably, Jannik Sinner has the full chance and great potential to claim the top spot after his early exit from Rome, which puts him in a tough situation.

However, if Novak fails to enter the finals of the marquee event, then Sinner will be ranked number one in the men's singles for the first time in his career.
