Djokovic Contemplates His Successor

Q. Federer, Nadal, you took tennis to a higher level. The next guys out there, do you have any idea who he is? And if you do, would you say it? NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I mean, you already know the names of a couple names like Felix and Denis, as well. I mean, a couple of Canadian young stars that are really bold and courageous on the court and playing some great tennis. You know, we're gonna have a shift. Obviously Zverev leads the way of young guys. Don't know who else. I mean, there are a couple of young guys like Hurkacz, the Polish guy. It's great. We need that. We need new faces in tennis. I think the tennis future is bright. Continue to read full article...

  Former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek may have committed tennis blasphemy by asserting that Novak Djokovic is the superior player overall than Roger. Krajicek believes Federer's greatest achievement was becoming no. 1 again in 2012:  his 'biggest result, because Federer managed to overcome (Novak) Djokovic and (Andy) Murray who were in good form that year.' Krajicek added, 'What makes Federer special is that he played at the highest level for sixteen years and achieved the record Grand Slam titles."

Djokovic’s Decline

djoksony by Louise Belcourt Melbourne, Australia - When Novak Djokovic entered the draw in this year’s first grand slam, no one knew what to expect. Having not played an official match since retiring with a right elbow injury in the Wimbledon quarter finals in July, he was completely underdone in terms of match play. Although, we all recall how Roger Federer also had 6 months off after Wimbledon the previous year and was able to re-capture the form and title that had been so elusive for many years. So being much younger, only 30, and with such an impeccable record of 6 Australian Open titles (only Roy Emerson has as many titles), he was still a strong title contender in many eyes.
