"It will be a major surprise if Djokovic doesn't win 25" says John McEnroe
Novak Djokovic is enjoying a tremendous 2021 as the Serbian won all three Grand Slams played reaching the overall number of 20. He tied both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal by winning Wimbledon and McEnroe belives Djokovic is making himself the best to ever do it.
“It is incredible because in all other sports you have debates. Lionel Messi or Maradona? Michael Jordan or LeBron James?. It’s rare when you get three guys who are playing at the same time and it would be hard to argue they aren’t the best three players ever."
McEnroe also believes Djokovic will continue to play great for at least several more years which makes the Serbian likely to win more Grand Slams. Explaining that he said:
"Finishing the year as world number one is important, but people like to talk about records – in all sports, not just tennis. There is plenty to talk about with these guys. It would be a major surprise [if Djokovic didn’t win 25 Grand Slam titles]."
McEnroe followed it up by saying he did not think what has happened in tennis was possible:
“If someone had said to me when I was playing that there would not only be one guy to win 20 majors but there would be three, I would have said the same thing as what I said to the umpire in 1981 – you cannot be serious!”
