2001 Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic has revealed to Sport Klub how his perfect player would look like -- using only active players to form it. Ivanisevic, a former world No. 2, firstly mentioned that perfect player would have the return of 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic.
The Croatian then revealed that the player would have the forehand of 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer and 17-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal. Former 22-time ATP champion Ivanisevic said that it would have the volley of world No.
2 Federer and the strength and passion of world No. 1 Nadal. When it comes to service, the Croatian revealed that his perfect player would have the service shot of 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic or 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.
Ivanisevic accepted to form a perfect player but mentioned in the end that he doesn't actually believe in that as it doesn't necessarily mean that the player with the above-mentioned characteristics would be a good player every player has its virtues and flaws.
Ivanisevic kicked off his coaching career in 2013 as he helped world No. 5 Cilic win a Grand Slam title before the two split in 2016. The former world No. 2 then worked with Czech tennis ace Tomas Berdych -- but the two split last year as the Czech failed to catch his maiden Grand Slam title under the guidance of the Croatian.
