Marion Bartoli has always been a huge fan of Novak Djokovic, and she called him the greatest tennis player of all time, but also the best sportsman.
Former player Marion Bartoli most probably counts herself among the Djokovic fans. She had the chance to watch Djokovic during his peak days while she played on the Tour but also now as an analyst, which certainly allowed her to see things in more depth.
Nobody really expected Djokovic to stay as dominant as he's been over these past ten years, but here we are at the end of yet another dominant season. He won three of the four Grand Slams played this year and lost in the final of the fourth.
He'll finish the year as number one on the ATP Tour after winning the ATP Finals, an event where he only lost to Jannik Sinner in the round-robin stage. It's simply been an amazing year, and it's why Marion Bartoli shared some very big words on social media.
She not only called him the greatest tennis player of all time but also the best sportsman, which is quite a statement from the former player.
Djokovic is not only the greatest tennis player of all time but he is also the best sportsman in the world. Novak has broken all the records in this sport. and above all this incredible longevity at the top!
The 24-time Grand Slam champion has got a really strong case for being named the tennis GOAT and likely will be by the end he hangs it up. The other one is a bit more complicated as comparing sports is almost impossible.
He's certainly one of the best simply by virtue of winning as much as he does, but the greatest among them? What do you think?
