The champion of Wimbledon, former world number one Novak Djokovic, has been announced. The Serbian winner prevailed by a lopsided margin over respectable opponent Nick Kyrgios of Australia in the final.
The tennis player defeated Roger Federer in straight sets, claiming his 21st Grand Slam championship to trail only Rafa Nadal by a single title. In an interview with Sport Klub’s microphones, former tennis player and current Croatian coach Nikola Pilic made some surprising observations.
Pilic spoke on a wide range of issues, including Wimbledon, the GOAT battle, and more “I believe that Novak’s Wimbledon victory was one of the most significant victories of his career.
He is had a rough season, and I think he really needed this win. It is safe to say this is the most significant victory of his career. Is this it? Several times during the event, Djokovic gave away the opening set before picking up the pace and proving to be unstoppable.
When Nick blew three break opportunities on 0-40 in the second set, I believe the match might have gone in a different direction. The more experienced tennis player emerged victorious, despite Nick’s considerable skill and brilliance on the court.”
As for the greatest fight of all time, Cilic has his thoughts.
There has been a long-running discussion about who the greatest player of all time is, and Cilic seemed confident enough to weigh in: “Novak Djokovic is a greater tennis player than both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Everything he is done is incredible, and he is won against just about everyone he is faced.
Additionally, he has spent the most time at the top of the tennis rankings of all time. Of course, I salute Federer and Rafa Nadal in particular. The man is fantastic, and it will be a century before another person wins 14 Roland Garros trophies.”
