Rafael Nadal Admits Novak Djokovic is the 'Best' Tennis Player of All Time

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have long been rivals on the tennis court but Rafa recently conceded after Novak won the US Open and claimed his 24th Grand Slam title (Rafa’s record stands at 22 Grand Slams).

“I believe that numbers are numbers and statistics are statistics and, in that sense, I think he has better numbers than mine and that is indisputable,” Rafa shared with Spanish daily sports newspaper AS. “It is not beneath me nor do I have an ego big enough to try to disguise a reality that is not. This is the truth.”

Rafa added, “The rest are tastes, inspiration, sensations that one player or the other may transmit to you, that you may like one or the other more. I think that with respect to titles, Djokovic is the best in history and there is nothing to discuss in that.” (Novak is currently tied with Margaret Court for the all-time record for Grand Slams in the Open era.

Unfortunately, Rafa has been on the mend from injuries the last few seasons and 2024 may be his last year on tour. He shared, “As always, everyone can see the story as they wish, saying that I suffered many injuries. Bad luck for me or bad luck that I had my body this way. He has had another one, and in some ways that is also part of the sport. I congratulate him for everything he is achieving, and it doesn’t cause me any kind of frustration.”

Rafa finished off, saying, “What is, is, and what is not, is not. I say this: I am very satisfied with everything that I have done.”

Carlos Alcaraz's Wimbledon Win Scores Him A Second Grand Slam

Carlos Alcaraz lifts the Men’s Singles Finals Trophy following his victory against Novak Djokovic at the 2023 Wimbledon Tennis Championships on Sunday (July 16) in London, England.

“You’ve won [the Queens grass tennis tournament],” an interviewer said of Spain’s Carlos, 20, after the match. “Now you won Wimbledon. You seem to be developing a very strong relationship with grass.”

“I have fallen in love with grass right now,” he laughed.

Carlos only had the best of things to say about Serbia’s Novak: “You inspire me a lot. I started playing tennis, watching you, since I was born, you already were winning tournaments. It’s amazing. You said 36 is the new 26 and you made that happen.”

Princess Catherine presented Carlos with his trophy after his win.

King Felipe VI of Spain was in the crowd to support Carlos.

“I played in front of you just twice,” Carlos said of his lucky charm. “Twice that I won, I hope you are coming more. (laughs)”

Carlos dethroned Novak in a five-hour match that went to five sets, 1-6, 7-6 (6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

Carlos is the first player to win Wimbledon in 20 years outside of Novak, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Andy Murray. He’s also the youngest man to win the title since 1986 when Boris Becker won at age 17.

Carlos Alcaraz Dethrones Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon Tennis Finals

Carlos Alcaraz is #1 – and here to stay!

The 20-year-old Spaniard defeated Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, 36, on Sunday (July 16) during a historic men’s finals tennis match at London’s The Championships, commonly known simply as Wimbledon.

The five-hour match went to five sets, 1-6, 7-6 (6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

Carlos ended Novak’s undefeated 15-consecutive tiebreak streak during the second set and even won an epic 13-deuce 27-minute game in the third set.

This is a huge turn in tennis history as Novak is a seven-time Wimbledon champion, was on a 34 match winning streak, and hasn’t lost a match on Centre Court since the 2013 final against Andy Murray. Novak was also gunning for another win to add to his 23 Grand Slam men’s singles titles, the most major titles won by a male player in history.

Carlos, who won his first grand slam title at the 2022 US Open, lost to Novak in the French Open semifinals last month after cramping because of nerves. Sweet revenge!

In the star-studded stands to watch this historic moment in tennis history were Brad Pitt, Ariana Grande, Emma Watson, Andrew Garfield, Nick Jonas, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, Lily James, Idris Elba, Ian McKellen, Tessa Thompson, Imogen Poots, Jonathan Bailey, Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton, Daniel Bruhl, Prince William, Princess Catherine, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte.
