Novak Djokovic: 'I hope Alexander Zverev can surpass me'

Novak Djokovic shared some amazing words on Alexander Zverev's potential and future in press conference after the ATP Finals match in London. 'There's a lot of similarities in terms of trajectory of professional tennis, in our careers', Djokovic said.

'Hopefully he can surpass me. I sincerely wish him that. He seems like someone that is very dedicated. Without a doubt, he's a really nice person, someone that gets along very well with everyone. He deserves everything he gets so far.

There's a lot of time ahead of him. Wish him to stay healthy and obviously win a lot of titles.' Djokovic also added: 'Today he did well. I thought he just balanced his game right. When he needed to step in, he did.

Obviously, he had big serves. I wasn't returning well. I wasn't making him, so to say, making him move too much. I was making way too many unforced errors. From 4-All in the first set, my game really fell apart, to be honest.

But credit to him because he played solid.' Djokovic was asked if Zverev can win a Grand Slam: 'We knew that before already, so it doesn't make any difference tonight. Of course, he won huge tournament, but he always had quality to win a slam.

There's no doubt he will be one of the favorites every slam.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
