For the former world No. 2 Tommy Haas, Novak Djokovic is likely to reach Roger Federer's 20 Grand Slam titles record. The Serbian player holds 15 crowns, five less than the Swiss, but Haas believes Djokovic will play for many more seasons.
“You say, ‘Well, hold on now' He’s 31. If he stays healthy another four, five, six years and wants to continue to play and dedicate his life to it, he can play another 20-24 slams. Let’s say he wins five or six of them.
I mean, he’s right there with Roger. It’s kind of crazy", said the BNP Paribas Open Tournament Director. Brad Gilbert, the ESPN analyst, added: “When we saw him at Indian Wells and Miami last year was probably like the lowest we had ever seen him playing at his level.
He’s playing as well as he was when he did the last Djoker Slam, if not better." Mark Woodforde, a 12-time Grand Slam doubles winner, concluded: “Now he’s back at that level where we’ve seen him dominate for many, many years and now it’s almost like, ‘Who’s going to beat him in a best-of-five match on any court?"
