Nikola Pilic commented on Novak Djokovic's Wimbledon final win over Roger Federer. The Croat said: "I am so sorry that someone had to lose because it would have been better if you had two winners: they are the guys who play the best tennis in the world.
It was an amazing match. I cheer Novak because he was my player, but I have enormous respect for Federer. I think it's difficult to put an end to this debate. Look at Federer. The man has 20 Grand Slam titles, the biggest amount of weeks at No.
1, the biggest amount of career finals, more titles compared to the past, at 37 years. It's unbelievable, but when Djokovic plays tennis at the maximum speed, he is the best player in the world. Novak is five years younger and I think he can overcome Roger, but we will have to wait.
Novak is the best on hard, Rafa on clay and Roger can play anywhere. Everyone knows it and if you insist, Roger is the most good looking and Novak is the strongest player, I think that's the best way to tell it." On Djokovic, Pilic said: "When he was 13 years old, I had no idea that he could be a big player, and even No.
1. From the First day, Novak fascinated me with his personality. He was a great kid, good, smart and especially grateful. We worked a lot. When he came to me, he did not know how to hit the serve and volley, but he had an immense desire to improve."
