Wimbledon 2021: After 20th Grand Slam, John McEnroe backs Novak Djokovic to claim record 25 majors: Novak Djokovic’s ability to play his best tennis under pressure can help him win at least five more Grand Slam titles, John McEnroe said after the world No.1 tied Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s record with his 20th major at Wimbledon on Sunday.

The 34-year-old Serb beat Italian seventh seed Matteo Berrettini 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4 6-3 in the final and McEnroe, a seven-times major winner, told the BBC he was “playing better than he’s ever played”.

“I think he’ll probably win at least four or five more … depending on staying healthy,” added the American.

“He’s put himself so far out in front of everyone in terms of his ability to embrace what he’s doing – in terms of creating history – and being able to execute under a lot of stress.

Rod Laver was the last man to win all four majors in a single year in 1969.

“He’s the only guy who can win four in a row in the same year,” Ivanisevic told British media. “If he wins the U.S. Open, it (the GOAT debate) is over.”
