David Ferrer addresses if Novak Djokovic can win all four Grand Slams in 2023

David Ferrer acknowledged winning all four Grand Slams in 2023 won't be easy for Novak Djokovic but noted the Serb has what it takes to achieve such a unique feat. In 1969, the great Rod Laver won all four Grand Slams in the same year.

In 2021, Djokovic won the first three Grand Slams of the season and also made the US Open final. But then, Djokovic suffered a surprise straight-set defeat to Daniil Medvedev in the final and fell just short of becoming the first player since 1969 to win all four Slams in the same year.

Through the first six months of the 2023 season, Djokovic won a record 10th Australian Open title and also lifted his third French Open title. Now, Djokovic's focus is on landing his eighth Wimbledon title this summer.

"It's not going to be easy but we're talking about one of the best in history, he's capable of it.

If he's physically very well, he is coming off winning the most difficult Grand Slam for him because of his type of game and he has achieved it with solvency. It has been a somewhat strange Roland Garros with Rafa Nadal missing and with Carlos Alcaraz who suffered those cramps when the match was very even.

But, without a doubt, Novak Djokovic deserved to win Roland Garros and show that he is one of the best," Ferrer told Eurosport, as revealed on Punto de Break. In the 2021 US Open final, it was evident that Djokovic was feeling the pressure because of the fact that he was close to achieving something that hadn't been pulled off in over 50 years.

Going into this year's Wimbledon, Djokovic is the top favorite for the title as the Serb is one title away from tying Roger Federer's all-time record of eight titles at The Championships. It remains to be seen if Djokovic can win all four Grand Slams this season.
