Well-known tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou believes world No. 1 Novak Djokovic is the most complete player of all times.
Djokovic, seeded at No. 1, recovered from a set down to beat Matteo Berrettini in the Wimbledon final and lift his 20th Grand Slam title.
“Novak is the most complete player of all times. That enables him to find the solution to most of the problems on court and this, on every surface. It explains why he is now in the best position to become the GOAT,” Mouratoglou tweeted.
Djokovic once again achieved his childhood dream.
“It was more than a battle,” said Djokovic. “Winning Wimbledon was always the biggest dream of mine as a child. I know how special this is and I don’t want to take this for granted. I was a seven year old boy in Serbia, constructing a Wimbledon tennis trophy with improvised materials in my bedroom and now I am standing here with six titles. It’s incredible.”
Djokovic ties Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal
Djokovic, Federer and Nadal now each have 20 Majors in their collection.
“It means none of us will stop [playing]. I have to pay a great tribute to Rafa and Roger as legends of our sport, the two most important players in my career and why I am the player I am today. They made me realise what I needed to improve, mentally, physically and tactically,” Djokovic said, when asked what it means to win a Major No. 20.
“When I first broke into the Top 10, for three or four years, I lost most of the big matches against these guys and something shifted at the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. The past 10 years have been an incredible journey and it’s not stopping here.”
Earlier this season, Djokovic made it all the way at the Australian Open and French Open.
