'Novak Djokovic should win five more Majors if he stays healthy,' says McEnroe

Novak Djokovic has won eight of the last 12 Major tournaments for complete domination over the rest of the field! World no. 1 has been the player to beat since he recovered from an elbow injury, saving his best tennis for the most notable events and matching Roger Federer's and Rafael Nadal's record of 20 major titles on Sunday at Wimbledon.

Confident in his game and abilities, Novak has always wanted to finish his career as a player with most Major titles, feeling he can catch and pass Federer and Nadal. At this moment, that seems like a pretty much done deal, as the Serb navigates his career towards the GOAT status.

John McEnroe believes that Djokovic should win at least four or five more Major titles if he stays healthy, praising his current level and how he deals with the pressure.

John McEnroe backs Novak Djokovic to chase 25 Major titles.

Novak is the first player to win the season's opening three Majors since Rod Laver in 1969, seeking the Grand Slam at the US Open in his first try to become the leader of the pack and leave Federer and Nadal behind him.

After conquering Melbourne and Paris in February and June, Djokovic was the player to beat at Wimbledon, where he won the sixth title in the past ten years. Novak defeated Matteo Berrettini 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 in three hours and 23 minutes in the final.

The Serb squandered a massive lead in the opener before shifting into a higher gear and leaving the Italian behind in the remaining sets. Novak seized six out of 15 break chances and played better when it mattered the most to cross the finish line and claim the 20th Major trophy.

"I think he'll probably win at least four or five more Majors, depending on staying healthy. He's put himself so far out in front of everyone in terms of his ability to embrace what he's doing, creating history and being able to execute under a lot of stress.

You're trying to break the all-time records - there's a lot of pressure. He's able to play his best tennis at this point. You expect that to go on for another couple of years unless someone steps up and realizes how great they are," John McEnroe said.
