Novak Djokovic: I speak with Tom Brady about training, recovery

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has rveealed that he speaks with NFL superstar Tom Brady about training and recovery. Brady, 44, is a seven-time Super Bowl champion and by many considered as the greatest American football player ever.

“I was close with Kobe Bryant, as well as Monica Seles, Andre Agassi and Boris Becker, who were my coaches, and Pete Sampras. I have spoken often with them, and I speak with Tom Brady frequently about training and recovery," Djokovic said, per Essentially Sports.

Djokovic, who is considered by some as the greatest tennis player ever, is always open to speaking athletes from different sports and learning from them. “I make an effort to make use of the opportunity to share something with all sportsmen and sportswomen, things that aided me or hindered me, and I ask questions, especially to those who have reached the pinnacle of their sport," Djokovic added.

Djokovic tipped to break the all-time Grand Slam record

Former Indian tennis player Somdev Devvarman believes Djokovic will beat out Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the race for the most Grand Slam titles. "I believe when it’s all said and done, he will have the most Grand Slams and will probably be considered the greatest player to have ever played the game," Devvarman told The Hindustan Times.

"The murmurs, the drama, the build-up that began post Wimbledon about him winning the Golden (then Calendar) Slam. It’s one of the most astonishing things out there, because it’s so rare, men or women. Serena was close and Novak himself has been close before, but not as close as this."

Also, Devvarman suggested it's virtually impossible to beat Djokovic when he is feeling his game. "The narrative has shifted to a stage now where if Novak is feeling it, you’re not going to win. That’s one of the most devastating feelings as a tennis player," Devvarman noted.
