Andy Murray: Novak Djokovic will continue to dominate tennis

A newer generation of players is still well below Novak Djokovic’s caliber, according to Andy Murray, who predicts Djokovic will continue to dominate men’s tennis for years to come.

With his victory over Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final on Sunday in New York, the 36-year-old Serbian equaled the record for most Grand Slam singles victories with 24.

He doesn’t have any immediate plans to retire.

It’s up to the young men to pursue Novak and try to pass him. That doesn’t seem to be imminent, according to Murray, according to BBC Sport.

“Like Roger and Rafa, Novak has been a fantastic player for a very long time. It’s the longevity and how long they’ve all been able to achieve that.

“Novak has had the longest lifespan. He has been playing at this level for a very long time.

This year’s Wimbledon champion, 20-year-old Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, defeated Novak Djokovic.

On the eve of Great Britain’s Davis Cup campaign, three-time Grand Slam champion Murray claimed that the incorrect conclusions were drawn from Djokovic’s loss at SW19.

“I said that after Wimbledon, everyone was saying it was a changing of the guard, but it wasn’t for me,” Murray, 36, continued.

It was evident that Novak had won two of the opening three grand slams and came incredibly close in the Wimbledon final.

He demonstrated his superiority as a player once more yesterday, and as I have stated, it is up to the young players to advance sufficiently to challenge him.

You never know how long it will last, but I don’t believe he’ll stop at 24 titles. Physically, mentally, and whether someone like Alcaraz improves are all distinct things. Alcaraz is an amazing player and bright, but accomplishing what Novak is doing consistently is something else entirely.

“It’s not the same as doing it every time you go on the court for 15-20 weeks a year, as Novak does. Alcaraz will inevitably reach that level, but I don’t believe this will be the last Grand Slam victory for Novak.

Djokovic is not expected to play in Serbia’s Davis Cup match against South Korea on Tuesday, but he will play against Spain on Friday and the Czech Republic on Saturday.
