Andy Roddick, the former US Open winner, congratulated Novak Djokovic on his record-tying 24th Grand Slam title, admitting he was mistaken about the Serbian.
Roddick was the latest American to win the US Open, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in straight sets in 2003.
Djokovic won his fourth US Open title on Sunday, tying Margaret Court for the most Grand Slams, and at the age of 36, he appears unbeatable.
Djokovic won three of the four majors this year and advanced to the final of the fourth, where he was defeated by Carlos Alcaraz.
It's the fourth time in his career that Djokovic has won three majors in a row, and he's aging like a great wine.
Roddick prophesied that after Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal retired, there would be a hole in the tennis world,
but a new competition has emerged between Djokovic, Alcaraz, and Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic has been able to dominate despite several difficult tests, and Roddick has praised him.
"The dominance of Novak and the way that he's able to win this consistently is just absurd," Roddick wrote in his most recent Betway piece.
"He's probably the most reliable player that we've ever had in the game." "I wouldn't bet against him on any given day, on any surface, in any format."
