Boris Becker commented on Novak Djokovic's attempt to break the Roger Federer's Grand Slam titles record. The German said: "Djokovic has the potential to reach 20, he is fit again, he is at his very best but in a way, he is always complaining a little bit why he is never as respected and liked by Federer and Nadal.
He is in a difficult position because people do not appreciate what he is winning. The question is, Can he catch up Federer? You do not say, He is unbelievable, he is number one in the world, he has won Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open back to back.
The question is, Will you catch Federer? I mean, he has had enough of this guy. That's the life he carries. He has a great life, he is a fantastic guy, humble and funny, but sometimes it does not come across because of the style he plays.
But yes he can. If he is motivated and if his family continues to work as a team because that's how it works." Becker also commented on a coach' responsibilities: "With an athlete, if they win you are the greatest if you lose it's your fault.
So you have to take that with a bit of salt but he did not just want to win the next tournament, he wanted to be part of the tennis history, he was attacking Federer's record, Nadal's record, so these players were his opponents and they kept improving. He had some witnesses and I told him to."
