Novak Djokovic concerned Australian Open 2020

“Novak Djokovic has the weakest smash in the Top 100” Boris Becker identifies shocking frailty in World No.1

6-time Grand Slam champion has slammed his former pupil and one of the greatest players of all time, Novak Djokovic, for having a mental problem with smashing.


Boris Becker has surprisingly identified a huge weakness in the game of 17 time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic saying the problem lies “in his head”.

Boris was speaking during the filming of his latest coaching videos for Top Level Tennis when he identified that Novak Djokovic has the weakest smash out of the current Top 100 players in the world, in his opinion.

Becker said, “You have no idea how much we practised the smash. It’s in his head. He thinks the ball is coming up and he wants to do something fancy an he wants to jump. I said keep it simple and just win the freaking point.’
