Andy Murray: Novak Djokovic’s domination of tennis to continue

The Serb, 36, won a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title with victory over Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final in New York on Sunday.

He has no immediate retirement plans.

“It’s up to the young guys to be pushing Novak and looking to overtake him. It doesn’t look like that’s close to happening,” Murray told BBC Sport.

“Novak’s been an incredible player for a very long time, like Roger and Rafa, it’s the longevity and how long they’ve all been able to do that for.

“Novak’s longevity has been the greatest. He’s played at this level for such a long time now.”

Djokovic was beaten in this year’s Wimbledon final by 20-year-old Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz.

Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray, who was speaking on the eve of Great Britain’s Davis Cup campaign, said the wrong conclusions were drawn from Djokovic’s defeat at SW19.

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

“It was quite clear Novak had won two of the first three slams and was very, very close in the final of Wimbledon.
