Novak Djokovic celebrates winning Australian Open 2020

‘Novak Djokovic still has five years left at the top,’ says former WTA star

Daniela Hantuchova believes Novak Djokovic will be at the top for ‘at least four or five’ more years after hailing the Serb’s quality.

Djokovic has won 17 Grand Slams and next year should surpass Roger Federer for the most weeks at world number one.

And Hantuchova, who has always been close to the Djokovic camp, believes there is still a lot more to come from the Serbian.

“Given Novak’s willpower and fitness, he can be around for a very long time,’ Hantuchova said on her podcast.

“I feel he has so much left in his game. He is so strong physically and mentally I would say at least four or five years.

“The way the physios do their work and the rehab, the recovery techniques are completely different to what they were 15 years ago so he recovers better.

“Perhaps it’s really about whether it still fulfils him.”

Novak Djokovic has had another fine season and will be crowned year-end world number one for a record-equalling sixth time later this month.
