Wimbledon 2015 ‘Djokovic will dominate tennis’
13 July 2015, Nirapad News: Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will win ‘four or five more Grand Slams’ in the next two years, according to former world number one John McEnroe.
Djokovic, 28, beat Roger Federer on Sunday to retain his title, his third at SW19 and his ninth Major in total.
‘Novak is just coming into his prime and it is pretty hard not to think that he is getting stronger and stronger,’ McEnroe told BBC Sport.
‘If he stays healthy, he is going to dominate the next couple of years.’
Djokovic has been top of the world rankings for the last 53 weeks and has won two out of the three Grand Slams this year, losing in the French Open final.
‘He is definitely into my all-time top five,’ added McEnroe. ‘My top four are Rod Laver, Pete Sampras, Roger and Rafael Nadal but Novak is at number five and rising’.
‘Novak does not have as many Grand Slams as those guys but I am thinking his total is going to rise quickly.’
‘He could be moving up even further in my eyes, but he has already jumped some people by winning Wimbledon again.’
Djokovic’s best year since he turned professional in 2003 came in 2011 when he won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
