It seems like a rule. Every major Novak Djokovic title is followed by statements from Srdjan, his father. The kind that make the ground rumble and generate enough dust to put on the table once again the eternal discussion about who is the best tennis player in history.
This time the father of the world’s number one spoke with the Serbian media Kurir and that they raised from Blick. “Among the three big favorites, it is always Novak against the rest. But he not only fights for himself, he also fights so that other players can reach the end of the month better. He has very good manners, you can see how he greets his rivals, how he acts as a host, when he loses he always extends his hand and congratulates his opponent. What athlete does that? And yet he has rarely received an award for Fair Play, while Federer has at least fifteen. Western media have only focused on Federer and Nadal, they didn’t pay as much attention to Novak, that was the only way to stop him. But then it has been seen that there is no way to stop him, he is incomparable, you have to surrender to the evidence and accept that he is the best in the world “he said in a first headline.
With the Australian Open cup at home, dad Djokovic confirmed that his son is on the final stretch of that path that would take him to absolute glory. “In a year and a half he will be the best, the statistics say. The young players coming are fantastic: Medvedev, Rublev, Tsitsipas and Zverev. However, they will have to wait for Federer, Djokovic and Nadal to hang up the racket to be champions. Most are from Russia, so there is no longer only the Western world, even the Chinese have started playing tennis, so Westerners must understand that we also know something about life, we also know how to hit the ball. They thought that this would never change, but Novak has changed everything, “he said.
