Even the Serb’s “real haters” will come to appreciate his records and achievements after he retires, according to Daniil Medvedev. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic may not enjoy the same level of fan adoration as Roger Federer or Rafa Nadal, but even the Serb’s “real haters” will come to appreciate his records and achievements after he retires, according to Daniil Medvedev.
On Sunday, Djokovic avenged his defeat to Medvedev in the US Open final by capturing a record-extending sixth title and a record 37th Masters trophy in Paris, coming back from a set down to win 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Djokovic also moved ahead of American great Pete Sampras to claim the year-end world No. 1 spot for a record eighth time..
“Ten years after he retires, there are going to be people who will start watching tennis just like me. I didn’t see Sampras play, I was too young but I heard he was amazing – it’s going to be the same [with Djokovic],” Medvedev said.
