“He has a different story”
« I don’t wonder why at some point Federer became something religious, almost untouchable, and why Djokovic can be a little hated. I complain about the spikes, both positive upwards and this exaggerated hatred towards Djokovic. He has this thing in him of always having to prove more than the others, because he arrived later and the others were already idols. He has a different story, he comes from a different place in the world. You must always put yourself in other people’s shoes. », confides the former player who became a consultant in comments given to OA Sport.
“Convince even the most reluctant admirers of Federer and Nadal that he is the strongest”
« He has the ability to find motivation in so many things and, although he has completed his comeback by overtaking his rivals, he wants to put even more space between himself and them to convince even the most reluctant admirers of Federer and of Nadal that he is the strongest. Some will never admit it and may not agree with everyone, but in my opinion there is no longer any doubt that in sporting terms Djokovic is the strongest of all time», he continues, relayed byWe Love Tennis.
