Fabrice Santoro's prediction: 'In 2019 Djokovic will have 15 Majors'

Interviewed by Sport Klub the former world no. 17 Fabrice Santoro commented on who could lift the US Open trophy. Santoro believes that Novak Djokovic has the highest chances. 'There are some favorites, I think everybody knows them,' said Santoro.

'It's obvious that Novak is in an amazing shape and that he is physically ready, I think he doesn't care who his opponent is now. If he plays well, at his highest level, for me he is the number one favorite, a little bit more ahead of Nadal and Federer.

However, I think that a few other players can join the clash may be the younger players but I give a good advantage to Novak.' And the younger players? 'It's difficult to find a name that can surprise you. One day Zverev will do something special in Grand Slams, so why could it not happen on hard? The same thing is for Kyrgios.

Who knows... You know, when you look at a star at the beginning, it seems that something is about to happen and then some matches are waiting for you, and many things can change quickly. Let's see how he does during the tournament.' Santoro finally concluded with a prediction: 'Novak will win one or two more Slams within one year.

He should be at 15, there are Rafa and Roger who won most Slam titles ever in the same era, which is something unique and crazy.' Djokovic will play Kei Nishikori in the semi-final on Friday. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
