The debate on who will be the tennis player in history who will end up with the most Grand Slam titles takes months if not years and among tennis fans and professionals there is great curiosity to understand who will be the GOAT between Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
In this edition of Wimbledon Novak Djokovic reached the final and on Sunday against Matteo Berrettini he will have the chance to catch up with his two great rivals with 20 titles. Among tennis players, Novak seems to be clearly even more fit and there are many experts who believe that the Serbian champion will not stop at 20 but is destined to become the tennis player with the most Grand Slams in the history of this sport.
Djokovic has equalized Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
Roger Federer was dumped out of Wimbledon in the quarterfinals by Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz earlier this week. The Swiss suffered one of the worst losses of his career, falling 6-3, 7-6(4), 6-0.
In a recent interview with Simon Graf of Tagesanzeigher.ch, player-turned-coach Heinz Gunthardt weighed in on Federer’s run at Wimbledon this year. “Against Hurkacz, he obviously had the impression early on that he could not keep up in the longer rallies.
He wanted too much too soon, played all or nothing. To shoot Hurkacz off the court in these windy conditions, you need an excellent day,” Gunthardt said. Gunthardt believes Federer needs wins against top players like Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev to gain confidence on the big stage once again.
“He lacks confidence and that affects his footwork. There is no way around big victories. He hasn’t beaten anyone yet, which gave him the certainty: I can compete with the best again. He still lacks this confirmation. He needs wins against the likes of Medvedev and Zverev,” he added.
World No.1 Novak Djokovic emerged as the winner of the Wimbledon Championships 2021. He has now equalized Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the Grand Slam tally as he won his 20th major in London. Interestingly, this is his sixth Wimbledon Championships title in his career.
Many tennis legends congratulated Djokovic after he won his 20th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon 2021. The really special message came from Roger Federer who has also won 20 Grand Slams in his career. “Congrats Novak on your 20th major.
I’m proud to have the opportunity to play in a special era of tennis champions. Wonderful performance, well done!” tweeted the Swiss Maestro.
