Novak Djokovic, the world number one has 17 Grand Slam titles to his name, three behind the Swiss legend Roger Federer. Additionally, Federer holds the record of having the highest number of Grand Slams in men tennis. However, Djokovic’s former coach believes that this record will break. And the person to do this would be none other than the Serbian great.
Riccardo Piatti, the former coach of Novak sees the Serbian as the most focused professional player during recent times. For over a decade, Djokovic has been engaged in an epic rivalry with Federer and Rafael Nadal. They have unprecedented 56 Grand Slam titles between them.
However, it is Federer who is currently leading the way with Djokovic’s 20. Nevertheless, Riccardo Piatti thinks all that is about to change.
“He(Djokovic) Was Practicing To Be Ready For All Ends”- Piatti
Piatti told Super Tennis about Novak Djokovic. He described him as the most focused tennis player of all time. Especially right now, he’s the one to look out for.
Piatti also shared his opinion on the Adria Tour. The former coach said, “He created the Adria Tour not because he wanted to compete with other teams, but because he felt he was doing a good thing for everyone. Be it his family, the teams. He was incorrect but in good conscience.”
“Then he was practicing to be ready for all ends. Nole is still very focused on his tennis because, in terms of Grand Slams which is his main goal, he can move very easily in front of Roger Federer.”,Piatti concluded.
With both Federer and Nadal not participating, Djokovic will have a great chance to close the gap at the 2020 US Open. Additionally, the US Open will start on August 31s at Flushing Meadows, New York.
