Srdjan Djokovic believes that world No. 1 Novak Djokovic is far more than only the best tennis player in the world. "I have to correct you. In the beginning you said Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world, He even is the best sportsman in the world.
Currently he is one of the best of all time, but very quickly he will be the best athlete ever," Djokovic senior said, when he was introduced as as the person who formed the best tennis player in the world.

Novak is your brother. Novak behaves in such a way that everyone feels like he is theirs. And he is from Serbia, he is of Serbian descent," Djokovic senior claimed.
"Novak is the key, Novak is gold, Novak is an indicator that nothing is impossible if you really want to."
