Novak Djokovic’s stardom runs crazy amongst enthusiasts who have been an advocate for the Serb’s game and mentality, wanting him to dominate the tennis circuit up to a remarkable point in history.
The world No. 1 who turned pro in 2003 has since amassed a collection of numerous ATP titles to his name, with his latest victory at the Australian Open 2023 making him the proud collector of a record 10 Melbourne Park titles.
Although Nole still has to catch 2 more titles for him to beat Margaret Court’s record of 24 slams, the GOAT debate goes on and apparently, his views on the same are unparalleled to what the tennis world believes.
In a post-match interview with Novak, he was posed with the question whether he considers himself the greatest male player in the open era and if he, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal will at some point be able to beat Margaret’s all-time record.
Being quick to give his cocky response and dismissing further questions about his position in the GOAT race of this generation, Djoker quoted “I consider myself the best and I believe that I am the best otherwise I wouldn’t be talking about making slams and making history,” establishing his belief to have gapped both the former Swiss tennis professional and the Spaniard.
“Whether I am the greatest of all time or no I leave that debate to other people. I said before it is very difficult to compare the eras of tennis, we have different racket technology, balls, courts, its just completely different conditions that we’re playing in so it’s very hard to compare tennis from 50 years ago to today,” added Nole.
Novak is one amongst three players of the GOAT debate, ‘Swiss Maestro’ Roger Federer who concluded his tennis career last year in 2022, and Rafael Nadal who serves as the Serb’s most formidable opponent and has Grand Slam titles tied with Nole.
