Robin Soderling believes that Novak Djokovic will surpass Federer’s Grand Slam record
The runner-up of Roland Garros 2009 and 2010 Robin Soderling believes that Novak Djokovic
will have more Slam than Federer but He only needs to stay healthy during the coming years
Djokovic will play Roland Garros in chance for winning the 16th Slam to be just 4 titles behind Federer
and 1 title behind Rafael Nadal, besides that He’ll chase the 4th consecutive slam winning
from the other side Roger Federer is playing the tournament for a chance to chase the title
number 21 in his career to extend the gap with his rivals.
“I think there is a chance but Djokovic needs to stay injury free. You know he had a tough time two years ago,” Soderling said.
“Roger didn’t really have any serious injuries. You know he’s been able to play pretty much injury free
for basically his whole career except from when he had knee surgery two or three years ago.
“Novak definitely can do it but he needs to stay injury free and he needs to be on top of his game for many more years which is not going to be easy.
“It’s going to be really interesting to see. Roger still proves that he can win the biggest tournaments and he’s still
winning grand slam when as he turns 38 soon which is really impressive. So his career is not finished yet.”
“He could be in the top three or four for a few more years which is just unbelievable. It’s still interesting
times. You know I really hope that all those three guys can play for many more years. “
“They’ve done so much for the sport. They’re so important for tennis overall especially I would say Roger and Rafa because of their rivalry.”
“We had two similar rivalries in tennis. It was started with Borg and McEnroe, we had Sampras and Agassi
and now we have the Roger and Rafa rivalry, two extremely good players, playing different types of tennis.” Robin added
Roger Federer is a player who took Tennis to another level, because of him many people discovered
Tennis and now it’s the 2nd sport popularity after Football, and that is because of All players efforts.
