Novak Djokovic’s Father Has Placed Pressure On His Son With A Shocking Claim Following His Wimbledon Victory

Novak Djokovic’s father has made a bold claim following his son’s Wimbledon win over the legendary Roger Feder.

The latter got past Rafael Nadal in the competition’s semi-final and was one win away from what would have been his 21st Grand Slam but a relentless Djokovic saw to it that the competitors played out the longest final to ever feature in men’s Wimbledon competition.

Federer had two match points saved by Djokovic and the Serbian would go on to draw within four Grand Slams of the veteran with an impressive victory. Federer will turn 38 this August, while his finals competitor is still 32, and is now in danger of getting passed.

Djokovic has also laid major claim to the world’s No.1 spot over the last decade and spent 261 days atop the rankings. Rafael Nadal’s 150 days is the closest, while Federer and Andy Murray went 48 and 41 respectively. The Swiss star became the oldest No.1 in tennis history last year after winning the Rotterdam Open, which is impressive in itself, and his Wimbledon showing proved he’s still got it.

However, Djokovic’s dad doesn’t see Federer as the best and reckons his son has been the top male tennis player in the world over the last 10 years and will become the record Grand Slam holder by next year.

"In the last ten years, Novak is the world's best tennis player,” Srdjan Djokovic told Sport Blic in the wake of the Wimbledon final. “Before the start of this season, he had 22: 9 against Federer, and 20: 9 against Rafa when he was watching for the last 6-7 years.

“To remain to play for another year, all the recordings that he has not yet, he will be down. One year ago there was 20:12 in the Grand Slam titles for Federer, now he is 20:16.

“We will talk again in a year.”

This is a pretty ballsy claim from the senior Djokovic and he has placed some real pressure on his son, who is the favorite to win the tournament again next year. If you’re looking for some good tennis bets, you could find the best sportsbooks for Wimbledon betting at

William Hill is currently offering odds of +150.00 on the Serbian winning the next Wimbledon and they have Federer at +400.00. Nadal is at +500.00 to become the next Wimbledon champion with Bet365 while Milos Raonic is a much longer shot with Paddy Power displaying odds of +2200.00 as it relates to his chances.

The next tournament is a way off now but another Grand Slam title will be up for grabs next month as the US Open will kick off on August 26. Djokovic is also fovored to win that one and Paddy Power has him at +125.00 to outlast all chasers.

Bet365 has odds of +400.00 on Nadal grabbing the title and his perennial rival Federer is +600.00 with William Hill.

Djokovic will have enough opportunities to fulfill his father’s prediction by the end of 2020 and we will have a much clearer picture by the time the US Open is done. But he’s likely not very appreciative of the burned his old man has left on his shoulders with those bold comments.
