Lorenzo Sonego: Novak Djokovic is strongest in history in terms of trophies won

World No. 24 Lorenzo Sonego described Novak Djokovic's results as "incredible" and added that the Serb is "the strongest in history in terms of trophies won." Djokovic, 34, won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon this year before ending runner-up at the US Open.

With three Grand Slams won in 2021, Djokovic tied Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on the all-time record list with 20 Majors captured. “Djokovic has had incredible results, is practically the strongest in history in terms of trophies won,” Sonego said, per Tennishead.

“He has the grandest objectives, like winning the calendar year Grand Slam which he almost did this year”.

Sonego labels Djokovic as a 'phenomenal' player

"Nole has shown that we are all human beings, and that the pressure is very difficult to manage,” Sonego added.

“If no one has managed to do it in the last 50 years there is a reason. And anyway, winning three Grand Slams and making the final in the last one is something that only phenomenal people can achieve. Djokovic has won everything."

Sonego's comments on Djokovic come in the wake of the Serb's Australian Open drama. Unvaccinated players likely won't be allowed to participate at the Australian Open and Djokovic indicated he could skip the tournament.

"(The virus) doesn't care what your tennis ranking is, or how many Grand Slams you've won," Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said. "It's completely irrelevant. You need to be vaccinated to keep yourself safe and to keep others safe.

"I don't think an unvaccinated tennis player is going to get a visa to come into this country and if they did get a visa they'd probably have to quarantine for a couple of weeks," he added. "I don't think that the person you indicated (Djokovic) or any other tennis player, let's not personalise it ... or golfer or Formula One driver will even get a visa to get here."
