“Novak Djokovic is Michael Jordan of tennis!” says Richard Gasquet on Djokovic

The Serbian tennis player, Novak Djokovic had only 12 Grand Slam titles before 2016. This took him 14 years of his professional tennis career. But in the past six years, he has doubled the number and has 24 Grand Slam titles next to his name.

Looking at his destructive progress in tennis, the French tennis player Richard Gasquet released a statement.

Richard Gasquet said:

“One has to become less good, apart from Djokovic, who won Grand Slams at almost 37 years old. Have we ever experienced this in sports, apart from perhaps Jordan?”

Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slams since 2018. He is 36 years old and still competing to add more Grand Slam titles next to his name. This concludes that Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slam titles after turning 30.

Undoubtedly, he has taken the factor of age away from the sport with his incredible performances. Tennis is a sport of strength, stamina, flexibility, and various other factors. As a result, when a player gets older, he finds it difficult to win games. He even gets injured, which takes them out of the sport.

But in the case of Djokovic, things are completely different. After turning 30, he has won 12 Grand Slam titles, which is quite impressive. He has proven himself to be the best. Moreover, he is on his way to being called the ‘GOAT’ of tennis.
