- There has been a long debate about who is actually the greatest but Djokovic is showing that he could be the one to make history
- After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic declared that he is the best and he believes that he's up there with the greatest
Novak Djokovic recently clinched his 20th grand slam title after beating Matteo Berrettini to win his sixth Wimbledon title.
The argument of who the "Greatest of all Time" (GOAT) in tennis is has been a long debate, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer also have the honour of winning 20 grand slams.
With Federer approaching 40 and Nadal, 35, having lost his grip on Roland Garros this year after losing to Djokovic, the Serb is bound to move forward. He is in the position to surpass both of them with stunning form in tennis recently.
"I consider myself best and I believe that I am the best, otherwise I wouldn't be talking confidently about winning slams and making history," said Djokovic according to IOL.
