“Roger Federer won’t come back younger” – Goran Ivanisevic

Nadal and Djokovic have shared the last 8 Grand Slam titles amongst themselves. Moreover, Djokovic was unbeatable in the 2020 season before the coronavirus hiatus, claiming three titles including the Australian Open.

Goran also explained that his pupil is capable of winning a calendar slam and will go down as the greatest player of all time.

“When one day everyone finishes their career, then an account will be made. It’s hard for me to talk here because in my opinion Novak is the best and he is the only one who can win a calendar Grand Slam. If he’s healthy, I think he’ll break that record. I think Nadal will break Federer’s record as well,” said Ivanisevic in an interview with Stipe Antonijevic on Nova TV.

“Unfortunately, I don’t think Federer will win any more Grand Slam, because he certainly won’t come back younger. But Federer should not be written off. Novak Djokovic is the greatest tennis player of all time for me, and I sincerely hope that he will do it as a result,” he concluded.
