'Novak Djokovic will be the GOAT if he overtakes Roger Federer's 20 Majors'

David Law believes Novak Djokovic will be regarded as the greatest tennis player in history if the Serb will overcome Roger Federer on the Grand Slam titles' list. 'He’s won all nine Masters, he’s won 14 Grand Slam titles, he’s won all of them.

So what does he need to do? He hasn’t won the Olympics but if he gets to 21, that’s the end of the argument isn’t it?' Law told co-Podcast hoster Catherine Whitaker. To which, Whitaker replied, 'Oh, yeah, for me, absolutely.

For me Grand Slam titles stand above anything else in terms of determining factors.' Commenting on Djokovic's chances to overtake Federer, Law added: 'It’s still a lot to get, it’s another seven isn’t it.

Now that he’s fit again and now that he’s motivated again and now that he’s added two more Slams, I know Federer is still a long, long way ahead, but they’re kind of a couple of years worth of Slams away.

He’s won three in a year before. He must have it in the back of his mind. He’s probably going to end up world no. 1 this year.' Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro in straight sets in the final at the US Open.
