World No. 23 Dusan Lajovic has nothing but great words to say of 17-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic as he has tipped the 33-year-old to break some of the biggest records of the game. Djokovic, who claimed a record eighth Australian Open title earlier this year, has made it clear multiple times that his goal is to break Roger Federer's record of 20 Grand Slam titles and also break the Swiss' record for the most weeks spent as world No.
1. Lajovic, who is now the second highest-ranked Serbian tennis player, is confident world No. 1 Djokovic will continue to play at an extremely high level once tennis returns. "Honestly, it is very difficult to describe Nole in a few words.
Djokovic is one of the three most dominant tennis players ever, and because of the way things have been going, he will probably manage to win the most Grand Slam titles, and he will hold records that will be very difficult to break after him," Lajovic told Republika.
Dusan Lajovic says Djokovic is more than just a great tennis player
Lajovic claims he and fellow Serbian tennis players have a close relationship with Djokovic and the 17-time Grand Slam champion has done everything he can on and off the court to help promote his country.
"Outside of tennis, we are friends, all of us from the Davis Cup team, and that is what we have been working on all these years, as may not be the case with some other countries. On the other hand, Novak is a great patriot.
What Novak is trying to do for Serbia, the way he promotes our country around the world, is simply something that is exceptional and unique. I think that his results, above all, and in addition to the way he has behaved over the years, influenced the fact that they recognize us not only as a country of wars in Serbia, but as a country in which there are many beautiful and good things.
Such details speak best about him as a person. Of course, when we Serbian players finish a tournament earlier, we all support him in the finals, so it's a very nice thing to have someone so close, and someone who is so successful," Lajovic told Republika.
Dusan Lajovic was a member of the Serbian team that won the inaugural ATP Cup title earlier this season as the world No. 23 won four of his six singles matches played at the event.
