Boris Becker, Novak Djokovic’s former head coach, is sure people have to wake up and accept the greatness of the Serbian.

Djokovic beat Roger Federer in incredible Wimbledon final after 5 sets to win his 16th Grand Slam title. He is now only 4 Grand Slam titles away from Federer and two from Rafa Nadal.

“Federer is the greatest of all-time here and has the right to get that love, but on the other side you have to respect a four-time champion a little bit more,” Becker told BBC.

“I hope next year, if they played again, it would be more even.

“He came into the party that was the Roger and Rafa party and he became the party pooper.

“Now, after 16 majors, people have got to wake up to the greatness of Novak Djokovic.” he added.
