Novak Djokovic: Roger Federer is arguably the greatest of all times

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has said that record 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer is "arguably the greatest player of all time" and that he has got no problems with the Swiss. Djokovic, who captured a record eighth Australian Open title this past January, now has 17 Grand Slam titles in his collection and he has said admitted in the past that he would like to one day hold the Grand Slam record.

The 38-year-old Swiss also holds the record for the most weeks spent at world No. 1 with 310 weeks, while Djokovic is third on the list with 282 weeks spent on the top spot. "Roger is arguably the greatest of all time.

A guy that it's liked around the world. I don't expect the crowd to be on my side and I'm ok with that, because it's Roger. Very similar with Rafa. I think it's more the greatness of them as people than me doing something wrong," Djokovic said during his Instagram Live session with Stan Wawrinka.

Djokovic, 32, and Federer met earlier this year in the Australian Open semifinal, when the Serb claimed a straight-set win -- but it should be noted that the Swiss hampered by a groin injury.
