Vasek Pospisil, a former world number 25 player, claims that Novak Djokovic is the toughest opponent he has ever faced. Djokovic has met Pospisil, 32, six times. Djokovic won six of those six encounters in straight sets. Pospisil’s inability to defeat Djokovic in a set demonstrates how challenging the Serbian is for the Canadian.

“The match against Novak is unquestionably the most challenging for me. It’s also a significant test given his playing style and our complementary abilities in the serve and return, respectively.

He is the opponent I have the most difficulty playing against. It’s incredible how he lengthens points, neutralizes big shots, and massive swings. Every time I’ve played against Novak, he’s been without a doubt the toughest opponent I’ve faced.

Even in the few matches I’ve had with Roger, I once came within two points of defeating him in Basel and was one break up in the third. He obviously has a lot of talent, but he might yet improve. It’s difficult because Novak doesn’t give you anything “According to Sportskeeda, Pospisil stated on the Match Point Canada podcast.

Pospisil and Djokovic last met in 2017, which was two weeks ago. In their first encounter in five years, Pospisil was defeated by Djokovic 7-6(5), 6-4. Pospisil attempted to motivate himself going into the game by telling himself he could defeat Djokovic.

I used all of that to convince myself that I could prevail there, which is not usually the case, and I did.
