Richard Krajicek explains why Novak Djokovic is the GOAT over Roger Federer

In an exclusive interview with Tennis World USA the former world No. 4, Richard Krajicek explained why according to him Novak Djokovic is the greatest player of all time over Roger Federer.

The Dutch believes that, despite he won seven Grand Slam titles less than Federer so far, Djokovic competes at a higher level. 'When you look at the results and length of his career, you say Roger. But when they play at their best each other, Djokovic is the better player and he wins most of the times', Krajicek said.

'He is unbeatable in the level of tennis. Novak had two or three amazing years. Federer played for 20 years at the top, his consistency is incredible. But Novak has won four Grand Slams in a row, which Federer and Nadal have not done.' Djokovic has not been playing in Rotterdam since 2010, in February he usually plays only Dubai or Acapulco and his return in Rotterdam seems unlikely.

'We would like to have him as a world No. 1. It's a tournament that doesn't fit in his schedule. He is winning basically everything and we will always keep trying. If he wants to play Rotterdam, the doors are open', Krajicek confirmed.
