Tennis expert: Novak Djokovic is unlikely to achieve the Golden Slam in 2024

Novak Djokovic had a successful year in 2023, reaching the finals of all four major Grand Slam tournaments, of which the Serbian tennis player won three tournaments: the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open. The only title Nole missed was Wimbledon when he lost to Carlos Alcaraz in the final. He also won the ATP World Tour Finals to end the season as world number one.

From what has been shown, fans believe Djokovic can make history in 2024 by becoming the first male tennis player to win all four Grand Slam tournaments in a calendar year. However, according to the assessment of the player who was a two-time French Open finalist and is currently the tennis industry’s leading analyst – Alex Corretja, it is not an easy task.

Djokovic is no longer young
Although he is still dominating the world of tennis, Djokovic is 36 years old. The Serbian tennis player somewhat showed signs of age, especially in the Wimbledon final against Carlos Alcaraz. In that match, Nole appeared exhausted and was defeated by the Spaniard.

According to Alex Corretja, Djokovic is still the top player and will continue to win more Grand Slams, but it is very difficult for him to complete the prestigious Golden Slam. In 2024, at the age of 37, Djokovic will hardly have enough physical strength to maintain his best form all year.

“I would be a bit surprised if he (Djokovic) wins the Golden Slam, because even if he has improved his game a lot, the truth is that Nole is still aging. This is inevitable and the recovery process is not the same,” the Spanish legend told Eurosport .

“But in return, he has experience and only focuses on important tournaments that have weight in his legacy. I’m sure Nole will continue to win Grand Slams, but it will get more and more difficult and he knows it. And in a way, I feel like the loss to Sinner in the Davis Cup could be good for him.”

“It was a wake-up call to realize, ‘Okay, I’m doing unbelievable things, but I can’t relax for a second because some person behind me is going to push me so hard. They are very dangerous and they know now they can beat me,” said the former world No. 2 tennis player.
