Toni Nadal: "Novak Djokovic's level is lower than in 2011 and 2015"

Novak Djokovic has posted the sixth Wimbledon of his extraordinary career, proving once again that he is the strongest player in the world. The number 1 ATP recovered Matteo Berrettini in the final on Sunday, despite the Italian having moved up one set thanks to a very slow start of the Serbian champion.

For the 34-year-old from Belgrade it was the third consecutive seal on Church Road, with only two sets left on the road along the London path. Nole has also equaled the two eternal rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to reach 20 Grand Slams, a goal that seemed impossible only a few years ago.

A victory at the US Open would allow him to carry out the Calendar Grand Slam, while his participation in the Tokyo Olympics seems at risk at the moment (especially thanks to the additional restrictions imposed by the organizers of the Games).

In his traditional column on El Pais, Toni Nadal analyzed Djokovic's triumph at the Championships and his amazing season in general.

Toni Nadal comments on Novak Djokovic's triumph

Toni wrote "I think Novak Djokovic's current level is lower than that of 2011 or 2015, but he has shown that he is still one step ahead of the Next Gen members.

He has defeated three young stars in three Grand Slam finals. He had in fact beaten Daniil Medvedev at the Australian Open and Stefanos Tsitsipas at Roland Garros. This success at Wimbledon tells us that the Serbian player has the best momentum to end his career with the most Grand Slams.

In a month and a half, the US Open will be held in New York, in which he will have the first chance to overtake Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Obviously my nephew will be there too, unless there are sensational twists. My faith in him is unshakable."

It was since 1969 that a man had not won the first three majors of the season (who succeeded in that case was Rod Laver). The eventual Grand Slam should put an end to any debate on the GOAT.
