Taking advantage of the period of inactivity, Novak Djokovic held a number of video chats to answer questions about his career and history. One of them, perhaps one of the most notable, was held on Instagram Live with Andy Murray.

Recently, Djokovic had an interview with Sky Sport Italia and talked about the other two members of the Big Four: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The topic? The best tennis matches he has ever played. When asked what he thought of the 2019 Wimbledon final, which he played against Federer, the Serbian said: “It was one of the two most beautiful matches I played, along with the final with Rafa in Australia in 2012.

They are unique matches, everything happened. From a technical point of view, the quality of Roger’s game was excellent from the first to the last point, the numbers also say so. I played the decisive points well, I didn’t miss a ball in the three tie-breaks and maybe it was the first time in my career.

These matches happen once or twice in a career and I’m grateful to have been able to fight against a great player like Roger on a prestigious stage like the Central Court of Wimbledon”. Djokovic won the 2019 Wimbledon title by saving two match points against the Swiss Maestro in a final that sent the tennis community into a frenzy.

The encounter lasted almost five hours and concluded 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12. In the same interview, Djokovic revealed how Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were also part of the reason why he nearly quit professional tennis in 2010.
