Belgian footballer and husband of Marion Bartoli, Yahya Boumediene, called Novak Djokovic «the one» and also noted that he feels the Serb is the greatest tennis player of all time. On his Instagram story, Boumediene reposted about the fact that Djokovic owns the highest winning percentage in men’s tennis history.
Boumediene captioned her Instagram story: «The one (the goat emoji).» This was not the first time that Boumediene publicly supported Djokovic. In August, when Djokovic was hoping to get the green light to compete at the US Open, Boumediene posted on his Instagram story: «No Novak, no tennis.»
Unfortunately for Boumediene, that did not happen.
Djokovic has been on a mission since he came back
After missing the entire North American hard court tour, Djokovic lifted back-to-back titles at the Tel Aviv Open and Astana Open.
Last week in the Kazakh capital, Djokovic lifted his 90th title. “I dared to dream, actually. I always hoped that he was going to have a great career. Obviously, I didn’t know how many finals he was going to play, how many tournaments he was going to win, but my intention was always to reach the top of our sport.
I am very grateful and blessed to be able to play so well at this stage of my life. You know, 35 is not 25. But I think experience probably in these kind of matches and big occasions also helps to approach mentally in the right way,» Djokovic explained.
For Djokovic, it has been a perfect return to tennis. “Couldn’t ask for a better season restart. I am super excited and motivated to finish the season as well as I have in the last few weeks,» added Djokovic.
After playing in consecutive weeks, Djokovic will take a week off. According to Djokovic’s official website, his next tournament will be the Paris Masters, which starts on October 31.
