In a chat to Punto de Break Patrick Mouratoglou was asked who is the player out of Big Fours - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray - he would like to coach if he had the chance to. 'I feel the ultimate respect for all the champions who you name', he said.
'Any of them is very special. Now well, if you ask me, "who is the player who you think is able to beat the Grand Slam titles record", I would choose Novak. I think that, when he is at his best level, he is able to beat Rafa and Roger.
I think he is back to old times, so I believe he will win many Grand Slams in the next years.' Djokovic holds 14 Major titles, six less than Roger Federer who won 20. Mouratoglou also spoke about Stefanos Tsitsipas, who trains at his academy in Nice and reached his maiden Masters 1000 final in Toronto.
'Stefanos had a stellar rise', "The Coach" recognized. 'I found him out on YouTube when he was 17 years old and the way he competed impressed me. He believes a lot in himself and wants to achieve big things.
Now he is world No. 15, but he can still improve in almost all the aspects of the game, both technique and tactics.' Djokovic will next play the Rolex Shanghai Masters as well as Federer, while Nadal will skip it due to a knee injury.
