Eurosport tennis expert Barbara Schett predicts that Novak Djokovic will go down as the greatest tennis player of all time as she thinks that Roger Federer will never again win a Grand Slam. Djokovic, ranked at No. 1 in the world, tied Federer and Nadal on the all-time Grand Slam record list after winning Wimbledon.
"I think he will finish as the best in history. Whether you like him or not, it doesn’t matter. If he wins this tournament, he will be the one with the most Grand Slams. I don’t think Federer will win another one.
We would be content to see him play again and with Rafa, things are not getting easy either”. Schett said, as quoted on Tennishead. “I don’t think Medvedev, Tsitsipas and the rest will win 21 Grand Slams.
Djokovic looks like he is 27 or 28 years old. He is very fit and takes very good care of his body. Even if he doesn’t win the title in New York, he will keep winning more. He knows how important the next few years are for that."
Djokovic sets his eyes on the US Open crown
Djokovic will complete a Calendar Grand Slam if he wins the US Open. Also, Djokovic will claim a record 21st Grand Slam title if he wins it all at Flushing Meadows. "I have had lots of time to rest, really much time for a tennis player.
It has been three and a half weeks since my last match. We have gotten used to it. Tennis is being played throughout the entire year, we haven't had lots of time to rest, especially in an Olympic year. I have had a great summer, it exhausted me a lot, but I can't be complaining.
I have had my best season when it comes to Grand Slams and I hope to conclude the year with one more victory," Djokovic said.
