Serena Williams ex-coach Rick Macci believes that Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic will still win another Grand Slam title. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the singles category, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles. The reigning world number is going through a slightly rough patch as in the 2024 season, he has failed to book a spot in the final of any event till now.
Macci, who was the coach of the former women’s world number one, was recently quoted in a report where he backed Djokovic to still win major titles as he still has enough to lift the title despite the presence of Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz and Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
"No, we are not seeing an end to his [Novak Djokovic] domination," said Macci. "He might not be as dominant because last year he won three out of the four Grand Slams and he lost in five sets to [Carlos] Alcaraz at Wimbledon after winning the first set 6-1.
"Is he gonna do what he did in 2023? I don't think so. Is he gonna be as dominant? No. Can he still be one of the best players in the world? Yes. Will he still win Grand Slams? Absolutely. People don't realize what he is doing at age 36 is unprecedented. He is still dominating to some degree. At that age, we have never seen anything like this.
Novak Djokovic has not played in a single final of any tournament in the ongoing season. 
"That's why he is the GOAT. But, listen, at the end of the day, father time is undefeated. You got the new sheriff in town: Alcaraz, [Jannik] Sinner. These guys know they can beat him, but Djoker is not going anywhere and I can still see him winning a few more Grand Slams before he says it's all over with."
