Newcombe: "If Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon he will be the GOAT"

In recent weeks the Wimbledon tournament is being played, the third Slam of the year that all fans have been waiting for for some time. Last year the London tournament was not held due to the Pandemic linked to Covid and now there was great anticipation for the tournament that sees the return, after that cursed final for Roger Federer fans who saw their favorite lose in final after having two match points against world number one Novak Djokovic.

The number one in the world is the great favorite of this tournament, a true dominator of the circuit in a tournament that will see important absences such as those of Rafael Nadal or the Austrian Dominic Thiem. In case of victory at Wimbledon Novak Djokovic will reach 20 Grand Slam titles with great rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and above all will have the opportunity to continue the Golden Slam dream.

All tennis fans are curious to see if the Serbian champion will succeed in this legendary feat that sees the victory of all four Grand Slams and the victory of the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games. A possible success of Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon could again change the hierarchies regarding the GOAT, a three-way challenge that sees fans from all over the world dueling, even verbally.

Newcombe: "If Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon he will be the GOAT"

Seven-time Grand Slam tournament winner John Newcombe commented on the situation and made the following statements: "When Novak Djokovic started his career no one would have thought about all of his successes on a grassy surface.

He has done a really great job developing his game and bringing it to a level now that he has almost as much confidence as he does when he plays hard court tournaments. In the end on clay there is only one player stronger than him and we talk about the best in history on clay while I don't see better players than him on the other surfaces.

I honestly believe that if Novak Djokovic wins this edition of Wimbledon he can be considered the GOAT. In the end Federer is the most aesthetically beautiful tennis player to watch in the world and then there is Nadal who has a quality and a resume that could even make him the best in history.

But Novak Djokovic is now close to being considered such, by now these are clear proofs and the facts cannot be refuted."
