Novak Djokovic : Mr. Tennis

5 Jun

“It’s a very special moment, the biggest of my career. It’s nice to see the sun has finally come out after ten days of rain, and it was great to see many fans for this final and I hope you enjoyed watching our tennis. I felt today something that I never felt before at Roland Garros, I felt the love of the crowd, I drew the heart on the court, like Guga [Gustavo Kuerten], which he gave me permission to do.”

―Novak Djokovic, French open champion 2016

Josh Meiseles writes for ATP website :

” Novak Djokovic   cemented his place in Grand Slam lore, rallying past rival Andy Murray 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 for a historic Roland Garros title on Sunday.

Previously a three-time finalist in Paris (2012, ’14-15), Djokovic captured the lone piece of major silverware missing from his growing trophy case, becoming the eighth man in history to complete the career Grand Slam. The Serbian is most impressively just the third to hold all four major crowns at the same time, joining Don Budge(1938) and Rod Laver  (1962 & ’69). He notched his 12th Grand Slam championship in total, drawing level with Roy Emerson for fourth place on the all-time title list.”

I thought Rafael Nadal would surpass Roger federer’s record of 17 Grand slam titles, it seems Novak Djokovic might just break it. You can never discount Nadal or Federer. But Novak has been playing superlatively and has redefined success. Four titles in a row.

Novak Djokovic is playing like the great Muhammad Ali ” Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. ” He retrieves everything. He hits everything. He has no weakness.

Why Novak is such a perfect tennis player?

” Let me start out by saying there is never anything that is absolutely perfect. However, as I go back in time (60 years) and think about all of the players I’ve had the privilege of watching, I believe Novak Djokovic’s overall game, including the mental and physical parts, may be as perfect as I’ve seen. I will explain Why”

Novak has redefined success. I had posted a Novak quote in a post earlier, think it is very important

” In terms of playing ability there is nothing to choose between number one and 100. Instead, it’s a question of who believes and who wants it more? Which player is mentally stronger? Which player is going to fight the hardest in the big points? These are the things that determine who is the champion.”

―Novak Djokovic
