"It's true Novak's tennis is not the most beautiful to watch, he's not most loved..."
French expert Patrick Muratoglou believes that there is no real debate when it comes to the issue of the greatest tennis player of all time.Source: B92, D.Dj.
According to former coach Serena Williams, the main criterion is titles won.
Novak Djokovic has that advantage over Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who are usually together with him in that story.
"The only criterion of who is the best is the number of titles won. Novak Djokovic defeated in that competition both Nadal and Federer in all Grand Slam tournaments. He won 23 major titles, he also has the most Master series tournaments - 38, he has six final Master tournaments and by far the most weeks spent as No. 1 in on the world list. What impresses about Novak is that, even at the age of 36, he has the ability to win the biggest titles. End of discussion," said Muratoglou.
As he added, stories about who plays better tennis are not relevant to the selection of the GOAT. "It is true that perhaps Novak's tennis is not the most beautiful to the eye, it is true that he is not even the most loved. However, these are subjective assessments. Objectively, he is the best tennis player who ever held a racket," concluded Muratoglou.
Let's recall, Muratoglou was recently among those who wondered where the Serbian tennis player was on the promo material before this season's Wimbledon. The organizers of the third Grand Slam of the season "forgot" about the current champion, but soon corrected their mistake after public pressure.
That is a great question. https://t.co/K9epPrQ38L— Patrick Mouratoglou (@pmouratoglou) June 16, 2023
