It had been a terrible telecast of ESPN earlier on Wednesday (February 5th), while two American loud-mouths, Wilbon and Kornheiser were discussing whether Novak Djokovic could become the greatest tennis player ever, leaving behind the Swiss legend Roger Federer and the Spanish spesh Rafael Nadal.
At some part of the ESPN show on Wednesday, Wilbon asked Kornheiser whether the Belgrade marvel should rethink his approaches to become the greatest tennis player of all time on record, while downplaying the significance of the Australian Open, Kornheiser had surprisingly emphasized on the luck of the devil of 32-year-old Serbian and stolen Djokovic’s thunder saying among his 17 major titles, 8 were grabbed in the Austrian Open including that of 2020, while the host had also taken a grain of salt on Aussie Open adding it was the least important among all of the four Grand Slams, eventually stirring up a hornets’ nest.
Besides, adding that Federer had 13 Grand Slams in the US Open and Wimbledon compared to eight titles for Novak Djokovic in combination of the Wimbledon and the US Open, Kornheiser said, “As a tennis player yourself, you know the most important majors are Wimbledon and the US Open.
The French is third and the Australian is fourth. Djokovic has eight at the Australian and eight in combination of Wimbledon and the US Open. Federer has 13 in combination of the US Open and Wimbledon. So, get out of here on this.
Djokovic is padding his record by beating old men like Nadal and Federer, because there’s no young great players. So no, he doesn’t move me. ” As a repercussion, following Kornheiser’s comment that the sedulous Serbian had been adding Grand slams one after another by beating old men likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal downplaying impacts of young guns likes of Thiem that really seemed to have tested Wilbon’s patience during the ESPN show, toeing the lines, Wilbon responded, “That’s the most ridiculous argument I’ve ever heard! ”
