‘Novak Djokovic has no weaknesses – he has the best game,’ says former world number two

Novak Djokovic has ‘by far the best’ game in tennis today says former world number two Alex Corretja.

Djokovic surpassed Roger Federer last week to become the player to have spent most weeks at world number one.

It came just 15 days after he beat Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final to claim his 18th major, leaving him just two behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

And, according to Corretja, who is now a respected analyst for Eurosport, Djokovic has a near complete game.

“I want to mention that in my opinion he is the most difficult player to play because he has no weaknesses,” Corretja said.

“It’s so hard because he serves well, he returns well, his backhand is amazing, his forehand is awesome.

“He moves very well, defends well, and has offense with a lot of options.

“This is by far the best [style of play]. This is why he dominates. It is difficult for his rivals to hurt him tactically.”

Djokovic does not look like he will stop setting tennis records any time soon, despite him achieving a major career goal with the historic world number one.

If he wins the upcoming French Open, he will become the first man to win every Grand Slam multiple times.
