Boris Becker: Novak Djokovic always looking to be different

BBC pundit Boris Becker says world No. 1 Novak Djokovic is always trying to find ways to put himself in the best possible position to compete against the top players of the game. Djokovic, 32, won his fifth Wimbledon title and overall 16th Grand Slam title on Sunday.

The Serb defeated record eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in this year's final at The Championships. "Novak Djokovic's form is based on his mobility and fitness," Becker told BBC TV. "For him, he had to change his diet.

He was completely vegan at one point, he's not so much anymore, but he's always looking for the extra to be a little fitter, a little sharper, a little bit different. "Roger is the most popular sports guy and Rafa (Nadal) is not so far behind.

Novak is not Roger or Rafa." Djokovic now leads the head-to-head record against the 37-year-old Swiss 26-22. Also, Djokovic has come a bit closer to breaking Federer's Grand Slam title record as the Serb has won four Major titles since the Swiss captured his 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2018.
