"Novak is certainly one of the greatest after that": Tennis analyst claims Novak Djokovic to be one of the best on clay after Rafael Nadal, Chris Evert

Tennis analyst Steve Weissman believes that Serbia’s Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest players to have played on clay after the likes of Spain’s Rafael Nadal and former women’s world number one Chris Evert. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles.
Three of those major triumphs came while playing on clay at Roland Garros. Despite that, tennis analyst Weissman believes that Djokovic remains one of the greatest to have played on the red surface. "The clay GOATs are Rafa and @ChrissieEvert - but Novak is certainly one of the greatest after that..." he wrote on his official account on the social media app X—previously known as Twitter.
Looking further into details, it shows that Djokovic’s overall record while playing on clay is not bad at all. He has a win percentage of 80 which is extremely impressive. Other than winning three Grand Slams, the Belgrade-born star also won as many as 11 ATP titles while playing on the red surface. His most recent triumph on clay came last year in 2023 when he defeated Norway’s Casper Ruud in the final of the French Open with a score of 7–6(7–1), 6–3, 7–5.
