British tennis star Andy Murray (41st) predicted that US Open men’s singles winner Novak Djokovic (1st, Serbia) will maintain his skills for several years and dominate men’s tennis.
In an interview with the BBC on the 12th (Korean time), Murray said, “It’s up to the younger players to push Djokovic and overtake him. But I don’t think that’s going to happen for a while.”
Djokovic reached the top by defeating Daniil Medvedev (3rd place, Russia) 3-0 (6-3 7-6 6-3) in the US Open men’s singles final on the 11th.메이저사이트
Djokovic, who lifted the 24th Grand Slam trophy in his career, tied with Margaret Court for the most major championships of all time among men and women.
Born in 1987, Djokovic, a veteran of all competitions, did not care about the challenges of younger players and still maintained top-level skills, winning three out of four major tournaments this season.
Murray praised Djokovic’s long run, saying, “Djokovic, like (Roger) Federer and (Rafael) Nadal, has maintained a high level of skill for a very long time. Among them, Djokovic is the best. He has been playing at the highest level for a long time now.” sent.

Djokovic lost to ‘divine’ Carlos Alcaras (2nd place, Spain) in this year’s Wimbledon finals and finished in runner-up. Immediately after the Wimbledon final, there was talk everywhere that Djokovic’s era was coming to an end, but Djokovic showed off his vitality by winning the US Open.
“After Wimbledon, everyone said a generational change had begun, but no. Djokovic proved once again at the US Open that he is the best in the world,” Murray said.
He went on to predict that Djokovic’s momentum will continue, saying, “I think Alcaras will soon reach Djokovic’s level, but I don’t think Djokovic’s career will stop at 24 Grand Slam titles.”
Meanwhile, Djokovic will immediately participate in the national competition Davis Cup as a member of the Serbian national team. The Serbian national team will play its first match against the Korean national team on the 12th, and Djokovic, who just finished the US Open, is not expected to play in the Korean match.
