Todd Woodbridge: 2023 is Novak Djokovic's best opportunity for Calendar Grand Slam

Australian tennis legend Todd Woodbridge believes 2023 is Novak Djokovic's "best opportunity" to win the Calendar Grand Slam. In 2021, Djokovic won the opening three Grand Slams of the season before losing the US Open final against Daniil Medvedev.

Djokovic, 35, started the 2023 season by winning a record 10th Australian Open title. "I think that Novak Djokovic has the best opportunity he's ever had to win the [Calendar] Grand Slam. I think all four Majors are on the table for him this year.

I believe that, that is the absolute goal for him this season. I think he's going to look at his schedule. He's going to orchestrate it so that he is at peak performance in all four Majors. I just think the stars might be aligning for him given everything that's unfolded over the last few years.

He was just so far above anybody else on the men's side at the Australian Open. I haven't seen that gap so wide in my time," Woodbridge said on The AO Show, per Sportskeeda.

The last few years have been the most challenging years of Djokovic's career but he is still one of the most dominant players in the game.

Djokovic has endured a lot in recent years and that's why Woodbridge believes Djokovic is more ready than ever before to win all four Grand Slams in the same season. "I actually would [pick him to win the Calendar Grand Slam this year than anytime before in his career and the reason for that I think that mentally, he's learned to cope with an amazing amount of stress, anxiety, the things that have been thrown at him.

But, they are all past him and I think he's got this open window now where he hasn't got to worry about any of that. He can just go out and play and pull it all together," Woodbridge added. In late May and early June, Djokovic will attempt to win his third French Open title.
