The victory of Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon 2021 once again caused a sensation with the Serbian champion who, by avoiding playing at 100% of his chances, managed to win yet another Grand Slam trophy and in this way he reached the great rivals of all time, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
The physical shape of Novak Djokovic still seems to be at its best and despite the 34 years of age, many think that Nole can continue on the circuit for several more years. This year the Serbian champion reached the record of weeks at the top of the ATP rankings and also won 20 Grand Slams.
The next goal, not too far away, is the Golden Slam, or the possibility of winning the four Grand Slam titles and the Tokyo Olympic Games in the same year, a feat that would be considered epic not only in the world of tennis but in general.
Wilander's words about Novak Djokovic
After the umpteenth victory of the Serbian champion, another past champion, the former tennis player and now commentator Mats Wilander, made interesting statements about the Grand Slam fight and the number one in the world.
Here are the words of him specifically: "When you look at Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal you think: Ok, maybe the two of them will stay another year or two in the circuit, then you see Novak and you think he can play for another ten years.
He seems more intelligent than the tennis player of the past and the margin that Nole has over others is immense. In the final against Berrettini he could have won with a triple 6-3, this makes you think about how Novak is dominant despite not having the service of Pete Sampras and Roger Federer, he manages to dominate even on grass.
The truth is that he is not particularly improved on grass but he simply has more strings in his bow than his opponents, you also notice him when he goes down to the net, another feature that sees him improved. Then we talk about his incredible defense of him, he knows exactly where and when to stay on every occasion."
