But Nadal recently said that his playing day may soon be coming to an end.

Djokovic is nearly 2,000 points ahead of second best Nadal, but the Spaniard demolished the 17-time Grand Slam victor aside 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 in the Roland Garros final. However, the Slovakian coach insisted that he was proud of his Serbian client.

He was then blown away by Carreno Busta's Spanish compatriot and world number two Rafael Nadal in straight sets at Roland Garros. After four years without a Grand Slam title, Federer took his 18th at the Australian Open in 2017.

"There is a lingering regret that I didn't win either the US Open or the Roland Garros this year", a bearded Djokovic told reporters in drenching sun at his tennis academy in downtown Belgrade by the Danube river. However, Vajda believes that his client has the age advantage over his decorated opponents.

Roger Federer is practicing pain-free after undergoing two knee surgeries this year and says he expects to return to the circuit at the Australian Open in January.

After the win, Khabib in his winning speech said that he had promised his mother that this would be his last fight. The first time Nurmagomedov was scored losing a round came in his UFC 229 title fight against Conor McGregor .

While concluding his interview, Vajda vowed that he would continue supporting his client as he aims to break some longstanding tennis records in the latter stages of his career. The reigning world number one will play at the Vienna Open next week, and he is aiming to rack up 500 ranking points and increase his chances of ending the year as world number one.

"I won't play the Masters in Paris as I can't win new points there". What has also been incredible is that despite losing the French Open 2020 to Rafael Nadal, he is still 1890 points ahead of the Spaniard.

During this season Djokovic has a composed 37-2 record. But it's also worth noting that he hasn't won a Grand Slam since that 2018 Australian Open. Djokovic was the runner-up at the French Open.
