Greg Rusedski says he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Novak Djokovic wins all four Grand Slams again.
The Serb was the world’s best player between 2015 and 2016 as he held the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open trophies at the same time.
However, he went through a slump at the end of 2016 and then an elbow injury curtailed the backend of his 2017 season and start of the 2018 campaign.
However, he regained his form in June this year as won Wimbledon and followed it up with the US Open trophy to take his Grand Slam tally to 14. He also won the Cincinnati and Shanghai Masters and moved back up to No 2 in the world rankings behind Rafael Nadal.
Rusedski believes Djokovic has regained that aura of invincibility.
“He looks like a serious threat to win multiple majors. Right now he’s tied with Pete Sampras with 14 Grand Slams, but he looks like the heavy favourite to win the Australian Open,” he told Sky Sports.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins all four and holds all four again because he is just getting better match in, match out.
“He has this calmness and aura that was once there when he held all four Grand Slams. The more comfortable that you become in yourself, the easier it is to play.”
