Patrick Mouratoklou reveals possible reasons for Novak Djokovic's semi-final exit: Too much pressure for the Serb

Djokovic went 33 games unbeaten, closing in on Bjorn Borg's record, before going out in the semi-finals against eventual winner Janic Sinner on the Australian Sun Hard Court. At Wimbledon, the Swede won a record 41 consecutive matches on London's hallowed turf.

Mouratoglou sees this pressure to extend this incredible streak as a factor in the world number one's defeat at Melbourne Park.

Djokovic confirmed this assumption immediately after the match and took positives from the loss against Sinner. “It's almost a good thing to drop a game to recover and focus,” the 23-time Grand Slam champion said after his semi-final exit.

Serena Williams' former coach has been surprised by Djokovic's poor performance at times. “It was a shock that Novak couldn't play in a Grand Slam semi-final,” the Frenchman said in an Instagram video.

Mouratoglou believes Djokovic will continue to win titles

“Djokovic played a match that was one of the worst matches I've ever seen from him,” the 53-year-old said.

Mouratoglou is confident Djokovic will win more titles this season and expand his Grand Slam collection despite the loss in Melbourne: “I still think Novak will win two or three more Grand Slams this year.”
