Legendary Croat: Djokovic is the greatest of all time

Published

The former Croatian tennis player has been the coach of Novak Djokovic for almost a year.

He says the collaboration is phenomenal.

“Novak started year out incredibly, 18 wins in a row. If we add those three from last year, that’s 21 wins in a row. He brought his game mentally and tennis to a level that was difficult to match. So I am sorry that this did not continue. Everyone lost. But the cooperation is phenomenal for me, I think he is also satisfied”, Ivanisevic told Croatian TV Nova.

Ivanisevic considers the Serbian tennis player to be the best ever.

He expressed hope that Novak will confirm that in the achievements on court, and that he will overtake Federer in the number of Grand Slam titles.

“When one day everyone finishes their career, then an assessment will be made. It’s hard for me to say, because in my opinion Novak is the best and he is the only one who can win the calendar Grand Slam. If he is healthy, I think he will break that record. I think that Nadal will break Federer’s record too. Unfortunately, I don’t think Federer will win any more Grand Slam, because he won’t certainly come back younger. But Federer should not be written off. Novak Djokovic is the greatest tennis player of all time for me. I sincerely hope that he will confirm that with his performance”, Ivanisevic concluded.

‘Novak Djokovic has a big chance to get back in the Grand Slam race,’ says analyst

The Australian Open will provide Novak Djokovic with ‘a big chance’ to get him back into the Grand Slam race, says Radmilo Armenulić.

The world number one lost ground to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros earlier this month with the Spaniard beating him in the final to win his 20th Grand Slam and draw him level with Roger Federer on the all-time list.

Djokovic, by comparison, is on 17, but he has a supreme record in Melbourne, and former Serbia Davis Cup captain Armenulić has warned against writing him off just yet.

“There are many stories that the Grand Slam will not be played in Australia, which is Novak’s great chance for a new, 18th Grand Slam title, which would completely return him to the race,” Armenulić told alo.rs.

“If the tournament still takes place, which we all hope, the least Novak will do is settle with Federer in terms of the number of weeks at the top of the ATP list.

“Nole is already warming up for such a scenario, I see that he will play in Vienna, win that tournament and calmly wait for the end of the season.

“I am sure that Novak has already recovered from the crisis, while Nadal will only be able to endanger him at the Masters in Paris.”
