Tennis legend John McEnroe has said that Novak Djokovic is at 'some other level' and that he might challenge Roger Federer's records in the future. Djokovic has been in brilliant form over the past two seasons, winning everything in his sight. In Paris, earlier this month he became the first player since Jim Courier in 1992 to win the year's first two majors after thrashing Andy Murray in the final.
That win also helped him complete a career grand slam, and made him only the third player in history to hold all four major titles at one time after Don Budge in 1938 and Australian Rod Laver, who did it twice during his career in 1962 and 1969. The Serb currently has 12 major titles which puts him in the fourth position on the all-time list.
"Everyone is chasing Djokovic, there's no question about it. At the majors, if you look at his records, he's approaching Roger's records, which would seem insurmountable. It's amazing," he said, as quoted by Reuters
"Murray is playing great. He's obviously put himself in position numerous times. But at the moment, there's no question that the level that Novak is at is something that you rarely, if ever, see."
The 29-year-old comes into the upcoming Wimbledon 2016 as the favourite, not losing at SW19 since Murray beat him in the 2013 final. Djokovic is on such a run that he has won six out of the last nine Grand Slams he has participated in.
While Djokovic is currently in a league of his own, followed by Murray, McEnroe feels there are signs that a new generation is on the rise which could break the dominance of the duo.
"Thiem, Zverev, these guys can see light at the end of the tunnel. It's an exciting time for men's tennis," he added.
The 2016 Wimbledon Championships are scheduled to start on 27 June and end on 10 July.
