Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are inspired by Novak Djokovic’s victory at Wimbledon.
According to Boris Becker, Novak Djokovic’s Wimbledon victory will have emboldened his two greatest opponents.
Novak Djokovic won his sixth Wimbledon title on Sunday, tying him for the most Grand Slam titles with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The world No. 1 knows that if he wins the US Open, he will take over as the all-time leader.
Between 2014 and 2016, Becker coached Djokovic, who won six of his 20 Grand Slam titles at that time.
Djokovic has long been a fan of the former Wimbledon winner, and he believes his achievement will further motivate his great competitors.
He told BBC Sport, “I think they like what they see.”
“It might encourage them to give it another shot. Tennis would be thrilled to see all three of these players compete in the US Open.”
“These three champions were incredible; they all performed fantastically at the same time. Sixty majors were distributed among them, with 20, 20, and 20 being the most common. Who’d have guessed that?
“Novak had a nice tale about how Rafa and Roger encouraged him to get back on the winning side of the sport, and he said they’re the reason he’s still in this game. Congratulations to all three players.
Despite his long list of achievements, the world No. 1 has struggled to connect with the majority of tennis fans.
Becker, on the other hand, feels that this will soon alter.
He said, “He should [convert the fans].”
“He’s one of the most well-known players on the planet. That doesn’t always come across. He occasionally goes off the rails and makes a mistake.
“However, no one is flawless. I’m glad he got his sixth win. He’s all set for a few more.
“It is, after all, a mental sport. Yes, it’s a physical game, and you’ll need the appropriate strategy. But it’s mentally draining.
“Now that the score is even, I believe Novak will take the lead. Rafa is taking a wildcard for the Washington hardcourt competition, so he’s preparing for the US Open, I heard.
“We haven’t heard from Roger, so we don’t know how he’s doing or how his knee is doing after Wimbledon. Is he willing to go on? What role will he play next? ”
The German went on to laud Djokovic’s illustrious Grand Slam finals record.
“The winning percentage is so intimidating,” he added. When he reaches a final, he [wins]nine of the last ten.”Brinkwire Summary News.”
