‘Novak Djokovic is the best of all time’ – Serb star backed over Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic is the best player of all time and history will soon recognise him as such, says compatriot Janko Tipsarevic.
Debate has raged for years about which of Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal is the greatest of all time.
Federer currently leads the Grand Slam race with 20, but he is six years older than 32-year-old Djokovic. Nadal, 33, has 19.
Tipsarevic has no doubts, though, that Djokovic’s best tennis is better than the rest’s – and he is adamant that soon there will no longer even be a question about it.
“Novak is the best tennis player of all time,” Tipsarevic told Telegraf.
“I played against everybody, I know who plays them when they are the best version of themselves and, with all due respect to Nadal and Federer, Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player of all time.
“It’s very important that people look at the statistics for these ten years: who did what, who won the most tournaments.
“I think when it is all over the next three or four years, Novak will statistically outperform the two and be internationally recognized as the best.”
