Novak Djokovic roar Australian Open

Patrick McEnroe: ‘Novak Djokovic should win majors for the next two to three years’

Patrick McEnroe said a “healthy and hungry” Novak Djokovic should be able to win one or two majors in each of the next two to three years.

The American – a successful former singles and doubles player who is now an analyst – also criticised Daniil Medvedev’s performance in his Australian Open final defeat to Djokovic in February.

“If Djokovic can stay healthy and hungry – which it appears likely – he should be able to win one to two majors a year for the next two or three years,” McEnroe told

“He (Medvedev) had no game plan I could see. And he never signaled that he was willing to pay whatever physical price was required to win, which is what you have to do with Djokovic.

“It always comes down to the most minor of details, but that’s what it will take to beat these guys at big tournaments – the full package. Not only are the top three guys physically better, but their racket skills are better.”
