In an interview to Tennis Now the Serbian player Janko Tipsarevic commented on who is the greatest player of all time between his compatriot Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The former top ten player picked Djokovic.
"My serious opinion is that when everything is said and done—and not because he is my friend, it has nothing to do with it I would say a different name if I honestly thought it—I believe that Novak Djokovic will be the greatest player of all time.
You and I both know that he will break, for sure, every single record outside the record which is up to debate, which is the Grand Slam record. Novak is ahead of Roger in Masters (titles) and he’s six years younger. The second part he will surpass Roger in a number of weeks being world number one.
He actually won every singles Masters Series (title), which Roger hasn’t done. The one thing you can argue is he’s missing an Olympic gold, which is a different discussion. I really think the main thing about GOAT discussion, and we’re not talking about NBA who scored more points, who won more championships is it Jordan is it Bill Russell or whatever.
In tennis, it’s largely viewed who won the most Grand Slams. The major role will play in Novak’s head. Because my personal opinion is that when all three guys are at their apex, outside of Rafa on clay, Novak is the best player of all time."
Tipsarevic also commented on Kyrgios's potential: "Nick is an incredibly nice human being. It maybe looks like he really doesn’t care, but he is a really, really nice person and I can tell you this first hand.
About Nick, I think people should stop bothering him. Nick needs to find out what he actually wants. And maybe he is really actually happy like this. I think people never think about it."
