Wimbledon for a feat that would be incredible. There is less and less of the third Grand Slam of the year and we are waiting to find out if and under what conditions Novak Djokovic will play.

The Serbian is recovering from a meniscus injury that Roland Garros has had to undergo surgery. His presence at the Championships is still uncertain and only with the publication of the main draiw, scheduled for Friday, will it be understood if the outgoing finalist will be among the protagonists of the tournament.

Among the many insiders who spoke about the situation of the former number one is John McEnroe, current commentator for the BBC. The American legend, in an interview with iNews, praised the 37-year-old from Belgrade, talking about the public’s treatment of the Serbian during his career.

Novak Djokovic should not be underestimated

According to John McEnroe over the years Novak Djokovic has played the role of the "villain" of the Big Three, infiltrated between the most beloved Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal. "Rafa and Roger have a legendary reputation and deserve it.

They were incredible. Novak not only matched them, but surpassed them both in terms of results, which seemed impossible. Both Rafa and Roger are wonderful people. They are loved and respected all over the world. Novak, however, is treated unfairly.

It’s the bad guy. I think, in a way, you always need a good guy and a bad guy. Having rivalries like this helps the sport, but I think it was unfair to him, frankly, because he is a great man for our sport, both on and off the field," commented the former tennis player.

The seven-time slam champion then took the opportunity to praise the Serbian for the way he transforms energy that is not always perceived as positive. " Novak was able to do something that I could not do so brilliantly: apply the maximum 'in bad weather, good luck'

When people want to see the challenger win or an unfamiliar face, he uses this as fuel to move on. It is an impressive quality that cannot be underestimated," concluded McEnroe.
