Serena Williams had a tougher journey than Novak Djokovic - Chris Evert

The 18-time Grand Slam champion Chris Evert believes that Serena Williams's comeback was tougher than Novak Djokovic's. They both became parents last year, but obviously for men and women in general it's very different and Serena got closer to die due to an embolism.

'Yes, it is the same as giving birth, then having multiple life saving surgeries and being bedridden, breastfeeding and coming back in 8 months... yes...you’re right', Evert wrote. Many other tennis players and athletes congratulated Djokovic, including Juan Martin del Potro, but also Toni Kroos, who wrote: 'So happy for you! Great comeback.' The former world No.

4 Greg Rusedski: 'Novak Djokovic wins his 13th major and is officially back. The Big 3 have now shared all three majors this year which will make the Us Open even more exciting and important.' Fernando Verdasco: 'Congrats Novak for another #Wimbledon title.

Amazing evolution in the last few months!!' The Serbia's Davis Cup team captain Nedad Zimonjic: 'It’s great to see Novak back playing like this!! Huge congrats to Nole & his team for winning 4th title @Wimbledon!!! You guys know the best how difficult it was tΠΎ comeback and play at this level after the surgery.' Mike Tyson: 'Congrats to GOAT Serena Williams for her awesome comeback on the court making it to Wimbledon 2018 final and my friend Djokovic for winning men's final.

I never thought I would like tennis so much but champs like you both made me love it.'
