Goran Ivanisevic: ‘I don’t think Roger Federer will win any more Grand Slams’
Goran Ivanisevic believes both Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will break Roger Federer’s major record, saying he “doesn’t think Federer will win any more Grand Slams”.
Swiss icon Federer currently holds the record for most Slams as he has won 20 with his last major coming at the 2018 Australian Open. However, Nadal is only one shy of his tally while reigning world No 1 Djokovic is another two adrift.
Former Wimbledon winner Ivanisevic was asked on Nova TV to give his opinion about the greatest tennis player of all time and he replied: “One day when everyone finishes their careers, then we will be able to give an account.
“It’s difficult for me to give an answer 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 [of 20 Grand Slams]. I think Nadal will break Federer’s record as well.
“Unfortunately, I don’t think Federer will win any more Grand Slams, 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.”
