Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic, 35, recently clinched this year’s Wimbledon title and extended his Grand Slam tally to 21, by which he surpassed the legendary Roger Federer in the history of professional tennis championships.
One of the major mentors of Djokovic praised his pupil by specifying that the Serb superstar will definitely outshine Federer in the future with his dedication and superior performance.
What did the coach of Novak Djokovic anticipate concerning Federer and Nadal?
The world is full of aspects which cannot be thought of at present but will become true in the future, and thus the conjecture of Mr. Goran Ivanisevic, 50, confirms this notion.
Ivanisevic is a former Croatian tennis player who became famous after coaching some big names in tennis like Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic, and others.
Since appointing Ivanisevic as his mentor, Djokovic has found himself in the realm of success, and he has won a couple of significant Grand Slams like the Australian Open and Wimbledon in recent years.
Djokovic & IvanisevicFollowing the Wimbledon victory over Nick Kyrgios this year, Coach Ivanisevic lauded his student Novak by pointing out one of his (Ivanisevic’s) past predictions in which he claimed a few years ago that the Serbian would outperform Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Despite Novak’s flamboyant performance at Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal remains at the top of the leaderboard with 22 victories in major tournaments over the course of his career.
The mentor of Novak Djokovic has always thought that both his pupil and Nadal would exceed Federer’s record, and then he said, “If someone had said ten years ago that both of them would surpass Federer, they would not have believed it.”
This sudden influx of incredible talent in the tennis world might seem fluky at first, but Ivanisevic hasn’t been surprised by it because of his incredible power for future projection.
