In recent years, tennis fans have been treated to some of the best players to ever grace the court. Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – four stars who will all see their names feature on various lists of tennis legends. Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, may well go on to be the greatest of them all.
At just 28 years old, he already has ten Grand Slam titles and looks as though he could dominate the sport for many years to come. The Australian Open gets underway in January and, at the time of writing, Djokovic is well fancied with Bookmakers to lead the way in Melbourne and claim a sixth title at the event. Bookmakers can also keep you updated on more generic tennis news, as well as tips and previews for other sports as well.
Djokovic has it all. Simply put, he’s absolutely outstanding. Whether he’s hitting shots from the baseline in defence or attacking with drop shots, the Serbian has every available option in his locker and his unique ability to kill and destroy momentum is perhaps his most impressive trait. Tennis is very much a confidence sport but Djokovic seems to have this knack to prevent opposing players from building momentum and challenging his dominance.
Novak Djokovic still has long way to go
He’s not quite at Serena Williams’ level but the potential is there. The upcoming Australian Open will tell us a lot more about Djokovic’s dominance. It takes great skill to become a champion but defending your crown is much harder. The Melbourne event will test his resilience but Djokovic is more than up for the challenge.
You can keep up with Djokovic’s bid to win an eleventh Grand Slam title via Bookmakers’ website. In the build-up to the event, they can update you on the latest offers, promotions and enhanced odds for various bookmakers on the internet. One thing is for sure, if you see a price boost on the world number one, you should strongly consider taking advantage of the additional odds – he will definitely be eager to defend his crown.
One thing that may leave Djokovic short in the hunt to become the greatest of all-time is the French Open. He is yet to win at Roland Garros and, after falling victim to ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal over the years, he scuppered the opportunity in 2015 against Stanislas Wawrinka. Given time, Djokovic will win that crown but victory in last year’s final would have secured the Serbian a perfect season and all four Grand Slam titles. Throughout the campaign, you can visit Bookmakers to find out more news and tips on upcoming events.
If Djokovic dominates the sport for a second successive year, he will be regarded as the greatest of all-time. It isn’t unfair to suggest that the Serbian is already one of the top five players in history but success in all four Grand Slams would stand him above the entire tennis universe. There have been some phenomenal players over the years but none quite as energetic, tenacious and simply as good as Djokovic. With a bit of luck, the world number one will defend all three crowns this year, as well as securing his maiden French Open title.
