Djokovic has also won the Australian Open, Roland Garros (French Open) this year. And now if he manages to win US Open 2021, he will become the first man after 53 years to win all the 4 major slams in a single year.

 

Not to forget after Wimbledon, Djokovic will take part in Olympics as well. So along with all the 4 major slams, the icing on a cake, he can win Olympics Gold as well.

 

Apart from Roy Emerson, Rod Laver, Djokovic is the only man to win all 4 major titles twice. Only one in the last 53 years to achieve so.

 

Roger Federer’s and Rafael Nadal’s names come to People’s minds whenever we speak about grand slams but Djokovic is also equally good. Due to the other 2 stars, his name hasn’t got that fame he deserved.

 

People didn’t use to like his aggression but by his performances and gestures over the years he has turned his haters into his fans.

Don’t you guys think we are very lucky to born in a generation where we are witnessing all the big 3 in action together? Rather than comparing, we should respect all of them.

 

You like 1 doesn’t mean, you have to disrespect the other 2.
