Toni Nadal says Djokovic 'probably the best in history', but Federer played at a higher overall peak level

Following his record-tying 24th Grand Slam title win on Sunday at the US Open, Novak Djokovic has been labeled as "probably the best in history" by Toni Nadal.

Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to clinch the US Open trophy, extending his lead among his male counterparts as the player with the most singles Grand Slam titles. The elder Nadal, uncle and former coach of Spanish legend Rafael Nadal, was asked for his thoughts after the Serbian's win.

Toni Nadal believes Djokovic could be the best in history, but did not peak as high as Federer

The Spanish tennis coach was somewhat humble in his response, admitting that Djokovic was "probably the best in history." However, the 62-year old was quick to add that 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer played at a higher overall peak level. Furthermore, he believes the elite players of today aren’t to the highest levels of play that they used to be years ago.
