Numerous tennis pundits believe that Novak Djokovic is the greatest player of all time, despite the gritty Serb being highly underrated due to his legendary compatriots in the Big 3.

Another name has been added to that. This time, it is from someone who works very closely with Novak. We are talking about former Wimbledon champion and a member of Djokovic coaching staff – Goran Ivanisevic.

Let’s find out what Goran told Sportklub.

Goran said – “I repeat, for me, he is already the best tennis player in history. When he is present, ready and healthy, there is no one better.”

Obviously, he had to talk about the other two names that immediately pop up in everyone’s head. This is what he had to say on prioritising Djokovic-

“What will be looked at at the end of their careers will be decided by people, but I think Novak will be the best in all relevant categories.”

However, everything is contingent upon the longevity of Novak’s career. This will decide whether he goes on to break the numerous records of Roger Federer. Let’s see what Goran thinks about those

“I do not believe Novak will play for another five years, although he has a very good five years. He will most likely top the Federer record for most weeks at No 1 after the US Open and the record for most weeks at No 1 after the US Open and the record for most grand slams next year.”
