Chris Evert: Novak Djokovic is above them all, he will have to be considered GOAT

Former world No. 1 Chris Evert has tipped Novak Djokovic to go down as the greatest tennis player of all time. 

Djokovic, 34, is still as dominant as ever despite his age. 

This season, Djokovic made it all the way at the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and now he is hoping to win the US Open and capture a Calendar Grand Slam. 

After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic tied Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on the all-time Grand Slam record list with 20 Majors. 

“I think Novak (Djokovic) if he has another three or four years especially I think he is going to have to be considered the greatest of all time. Mentally, physically oh my gosh, and emotionally he’s above them all I think,” Evert told FanSided’s Da Windy City podcast.

Evert also acknowledged the greatness of Federer and Nadal. 

“Shot making, artistry Roger Federer. Fitness and warrior, fighter Rafa Nadal but Djokovic will win more tournaments and will win more Grand Slam tournaments and will have a better record.”

Evert, Barbara Schett have the same prediction for Djokovic 

“I think he will finish as the best in history. Whether you like him or not, it doesn’t matter. If he wins this tournament, he will be the one with the most Grand Slams. I don’t think Federer will win another one. We would be content to see him play again and with Rafa, things are not getting easy either.” Eurosport tennis experi Schett said a few days ago.

“I don’t think Medvedev, Tsitsipas and the rest will win 21 Grand Slams. Djokovic looks like he is 27 or 28 years old. He is very fit and takes very good care of his body. Even if he doesn’t win the title in New York, he will keep winning more. He knows how important the next few years are for that.”
