Aljaz Bedene: "Novak Djokovic is the GOAT, not Roger Federer"

The GOAT issue in tennis has been raising discussions for years now, with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic as candidates for this role. Aljaz Bedene talked about Federer and Djokovic and the GOAT issue During a recent interview with SportKlub.

Bedene, who surrendered to Djokovic in the third round of Roland Garros, explained: "It is not easy to establish with certainty who is the greatest ever. Roger Federer plays the best tennis ever, there is no doubt about it.

However, I believe that Novak Djokovic will finish with the most Grand Slams of all. In the end he will be the GOAT." We recall that in a long interview with Caminada', Federer highlighted Mirka's importance for her growth on and off the court: "When I got engaged to Mirka, I still had no title on the board.

She is a strong and intelligent woman who has had a huge impact on me both on and off the court. She taught me to always do my best and she was close to me after every defeat. She has never allowed my professional gambling activity to interfere with our daily life.

Our life together is intense and exciting."

Roger Federer's come back

After reaching the quarterfinals of the Championships, the 40-year-old from Basel announced that he had suffered a knee relapse and had to operate for the third time in 18 months.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion is expected to return to the Laver Cup, before competing in the ATP in Basel. But the real question is: will Roger Federer be able to treat himself to one last ride before retiring? A question that his fans are trying to answer.

The former world number 1 has experienced a real ordeal from a sporting point of view in the last two years, mainly thanks to a serious injury to his right knee. Suffice it to say that the Swiss phenomenon has only played 13 official matches in 2021, with a balance of nine wins and four defeats.

The round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon were his best seasonal results, a far too meager booty for a legend like him.
