The Serbian had another exceptional season, finishing the year as World No.1 and grasping the title at the ATP Finals, in addition to the Grand Slams. This is similar to Djokovic's 2015, where he achieved the same feat, albeit eight years younger.

Djokovic of today is better than his 2015 counterpart, says Mouratoglou
In his most recent "Eye of the Coach" video on YouTube, Mouratoglou proposed that the current Djokovic was a better player than his 2015 version.
"It’s interesting to think if the Novak of 2023 is a better player than the Novak of 2015. I think the Novak of today is better,” he said. “His game evolved, his confidence evolved, he’s played so many more matches. He has so much more height when looking at his game, looking at his opponent. He didn’t drop physically. If he had have dropped physically, then probably the Novak of 2015 would have been a better player than the Novak of 2023. But his fitness level I think is the same. He’s as fast, he’s as flexible, he’s as balanced when he hits his shots, he’s as resistant. So, he’s a better player today, yes.

"I think the 2023 season of Novak is one of the best of his career. As good as the best ones he had in the past, 2015 for example, which is crazy when you think about it, because there is almost 10 years between those seasons. At 36 years old, it is something unheard of."
