‘Novak Djokovic stood up for his beliefs’, says ATP legend


Australian tennis legend Alicia Molik is betting on Novak Djokovic to break the all-time Grand Slam record and go down in history as the greatest player in tennis history. Djokovic, 35, defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Australian Open final to tie Rafael Nadal on the all-time Grand Slam list with 22 Majors. It’s no secret that Djokovic wants the all-time Grand Slam record and Molik believes the chances are high that the Serb will indeed end up with the most Grand Slams in tennis history. “I think it’s the start of many more, he’s going to top the charts and he’s going to be remembered as the greatest of all time. I still think he has three or four more [titles] left, at least. Let’s wait and see what happens, but he is dominating men’s tennis,” Molik declared on Nine’s Today show. Djokovic, who will turn 36 in May, is undoubtedly still a very dominant figure in tennis. Moments after winning his 22nd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, Djokovic noted that he still feels very confident in his chances and admitted that he is hungry for more Grand Slam success. “I don’t want to stop here. I have no intention of stopping here. I feel great about my tennis. I know that when I feel good physically and mentally present, I have a chance to win any slam against anyone. I like my chances for the future. But again, nothing is given or taken for granted. Of course, there are many players who want this trophy or want the number 1 position in the world,” Djokovic explained after his triumph at the Australian Open.

Jimmy Connors defends Nole Djokovic

Former American tennis player Jimmy Connors has defended Novak Djokovic over his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine. “The guy stood up for his beliefs, right or wrong, some people are going to say moving to the left, the other is going to stay moving to the right? But he stood up for his beliefs and he was willing to stick by that, to the point of being ostracized from the game. That’s brutal. I can identify, I was ostracized. You know, from the French Open and from playing some tournaments and stuff like that. So, what the hell, go in there and do your job when that’s the only way to get even. And I hate to say that because it sounds like ‘oh god, he’s angry’, I’m not angry. I just know how many of those people that have cr**ped on him last year and all that, are kissing his a** now. All of them.”
