Belgian footballer and Marion Bartoli's husband Yahya Boumediene has called Novak Djokovic "the only one" and also noted he feels the Serb is the greatest tennis player of all time. On his Instagram Story, Boumediene reposted about the fact that Djokovic owns the highest win percentage in men's tennis history.

Boumediene captioned his Instagram Story: "The only one (the goat emoji)." This was not the first time that Boumediene publicly supported Djokovic. In August - when Djokovic was hoping to get the green light to compete at the US Open - Boumediene posted on his Instagram Story: "No Novak, no tennis." Unfortunately for Boumediene, that didn't happen.

Djokovic has been on a mission since returning

After missing the entire North American hard court swing, Djokovic lifted back-to-back titles at the Tel Aviv Open and Astana Open. Last week in the Kazakh capital, Djokovic lifted his 90th title.

“I dared to dream, actually. I always hoped that I would be going to have a great career. Obviously, didn’t know the amount of finals I was going to play, the amount of tournaments I was going to win, but my intention was always to reach the highest heights in our sport.

I’m just very grateful and blessed to be able to play this well at this stage of my life. You know, 35 is not 25. But I think the experience, probably, in these kinds of matches and big occasions helps as well to approach mentally in the right way," Djokovic explained.

For Djokovic, it has been a perfect return to tennis. “I could not ask for a better restart of the season. I’m super pumped and motivated to end the season as well as I have done these past couple of weeks," Djokovic added.

After playing in back-to-back weeks, Djokovic is taking a week off. Per Djokovic's official site, his next tournament will be the Paris Masters, which starts on October 31.
