«Djokovic and Nadal win more than Federer in the end»

At the end of this era, who will have the most titles? Novak Djokovic’s coach has apparently always known that it won’t be Federer.

the essentials in brief

  • The question of who is the best player of all time divides the tennis world.
  • Rafael Nadal is currently leading in terms of Grand Slam titles ahead of Djokovic and Federer.
  • For Noles coach Ivanisevic it was apparently always clear that the Swiss would be “last”.

For what feels like an eternity, men’s tennis has been dominated by three names. When asked which of the three is the “GOAT”, sparks often fly. One thing was apparently always clear to Goran Ivanisevic, Novak Djokovic’s coach: Roger Federer will not win most titles.

As he told the Croatian news agency “HINA”, he had predicted this for a long time. “Even before I became Djokovic’s coach, I said that he and Nadal would end up winning more than Federer. If they are healthy, there are no limits.”

Who will end up with the most Grand Slam titles?

There are currently many indications that Ivanisevic will be right. Nadal tops the Major title rankings after his triumphs at the Australian Open and French Open. Thanks to his success at Wimbledon, Novak is hot on his heels with 21 wins.

Rafael Nadal
With the victory in Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal won the 22nd Grand Slam title of his career.
Novak Djokovic
With his recent success at Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic has 21 major titles.
Roger Federer
Roger Federer won his 20th and most recent Grand Slam title in 2018 at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Federer has to settle for third place with 20 titles at Grand Slam tournaments. And at almost 41 years of age, he is also by far the oldest of the “Big Three”. Nadal (36) and Djokovic (35) are likely to play beyond Roger’s career end. And probably win.
