Novak Djokovic encounters provocations at practically every step, and the last in a row came from one of the biggest rivals, Roger Federer.
Federer ended the competition in the quarterfinals with a defeat by Hurbert Hurkac, and as it is more than clear that the end of his more than successful career is approaching, the Swiss used the extra free time to send an unequivocal message that Novak Djokovic was just one step away from equalizing. by the number of titles won in Grand Slam tournaments with Federer and Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
In an advertisement he shot for a world-famous brand, he expressed the belief that “it is not the number of titles that matters, but how well you play”:
“How do we measure size?” The number of titles? The number of Grand Slams won? Maybe, but not just them. Some things numbers cannot represent. The numbers will not be able to show that this man plays tennis better than anyone has ever done. The numbers will not show that he is the most respected athlete in the world because of his elegance on and off the field. It is true that, whatever the eternal list shows, its legendaryness can only grow. Because, in time, Roger Federer’s legacy will be bigger than any number “, reads the text that accompanies the disputed advertisement.
It is interesting that Federer, while he was ahead of Djokovic in terms of numbers, pointed out on almost every possible occasion that titles and similar things were what made him different from the others, while the story of beauty was not even in the traces. On the other hand, if his legacy is not only measured by playing on the field and the number of titles, the big question is what exactly the Swiss will leave behind, because his influence can hardly be compared to Djokovic’s, especially if we take into account events around Djokovic’s Association of Professional Tennis Players and conflicts with the ATP in order to improve the conditions for all who are trying to make a living from “white sports”.
We remind you that Djokovic won 19 titles at Grand Slam tournaments in his career, one less than Nadal and Federer, and he will have a chance to overtake them on Sunday at 3 pm, when his rival in the Wimbledon final will be Italian Mateo Beretini.
