Djokovic on course for a Golden Slam

Djokovic, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Wawrinka, Andy Murray
After a stellar 2015, in which he won a career-high 11 titles, including three majors, Djokovic has played two tournaments this season — the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha and the Australian Open — and carted home both titles.

Novak Djokovic is arguably the greatest individual sportsman on the planet today. Usain Bolt comes close, but heck! His season, boils down to 2 or 3 big races a year. But the ‘Bomber from Belgrade’ as he came to be known early on, now reigns supreme over men’s tennis and how?! Playing 40 weeks in a calendar – barely giving anything away to his rivals – the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Wawrinka and Andy Murray, Djokovic has virtually erased the word ‘defeat’ from his arsenal.

While 2015 was an almost perfect year for Novak Djokovic on the men’s tour – and had it not been for Stan ‘The Man’ Wawrinka – the defending French Open Champ, the Serb could’ve etched his name as the only player to win a career grand slam in the most competitive of generations and nearly half a century. Yet, the Serb has set his sights on greater things and far more unique feats. Having won 4 of the last 5 Grand Slams, victory at Melbourne Park proved his dominance in the Sport – and the writing is now well and truly on the wall…

Roger Federer has the most Grand Slams & 7 seven Wimbledons to his name, Rafael Nadal’s 9 French Open titles may forever stand the test of time. But 2016 is the year when Novak Djokovic can stake out and claim the greatest achievement in the history of the Men’s game – completing a golden Grand Slam, something not even the legendary Rod Laver can boast about. In the year of the Olympics and an ATP circuit that shudders at the thought of taking on the World #1 – Djokovic has it in him to win the French, a 4th Wimbledon crown and Olympic Gold and the U.S Open, all in the same calendar year, with very few to stop him. With his game dubbed perfect by the pundits, his mental resilience next to none and his fitness unquestionable. Who is to say, the ‘Djoker’ cannot achieve the unachievable thus far.
