'Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal haven't done it either', says legend

Today there seems to be no tennis player who can beat Novak Djokovic. Cristian Garín was one of the victims who has been counting the number one in the world. They are already 18 and counting for the Serbian. The worst of all, or at least for his rivals, is that “Nole” feels playing at a very high level that allows him, for the moment, to access the 2021 Wimbledon quarters.

"I'm quite happy with my game today. I felt that I was somewhat volatile in the third round, today I signed a much more solid performance from the first point to the last, mentally I was always present. Also, I served much better, using the track very well.

Cristian was playing for the first time on Center Court and it was easy to see that he was a bit nervous. He made a lot of unforced errors at the start of the match, which I took advantage of to win the first set comfortably,” said the winner of 19 Grand Slams.

“From there we had several very tight games in the second set, but I managed to break his serve when I needed it most. For my part, I have served very well and I feel comfortable. I think the serve is what affects my game the most, in general: when I manage to serve well, a lot of free points with my first serve and my serve games are short-lived, that gives me a lot of confidence and allows me to relax a little for the rest.

In general, I am very satisfied with my level, "he added in statements taken up by‘ Break Point. ’Finally, he spoke about the support he received from the public on center court:“ They were great. They supported me, I felt a great atmosphere.

I understand that most people want the underdog to win. I accept it, it seems correct to me. Sometimes I am able to let it go and keep my focus on what really matters." John McEnroe believes Novak Djokovic will be beaten at the Tokyo Olympics and thus will not be able to complete the Calendar Golden Slam.

But McEnroe feels Djokovic will bounce back strongly to win the US Open and complete the Calendar Slam. McEnroe pointed out how Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, Djokovic's two biggest rivals, have not managed to win the Calendar Slam.

According to the former World No. 1, the fact that the Serb held all four Majors in 2015-16 is an astounding achievement in itself.

"Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal haven't done it either.

It's been 50-odd years since Rod Laver did it in 1969," John McEnroe added. "Novak Djokovic did hold all four in a row at one stage and I'll take that any day of the week along with any other player. This is crazy that he's been this consistently good and arguably better than ever at this age." Djokovic, who is the firm favorite to lift the title come Sunday, admitted his confidence levels are "high" following his historic Roland Garros triumph last month.

“My confidence levels are high. After winning the French Open... that was probably one of my biggest wins under those circumstances” Djokovic said. "Two five-setters, two four-setters. It took a lot out of me but at the same time it gave me wings."
