Happy Birthday to Novak Djokovic who turns 32 today. The World No. 1 is enjoying a brief week of rest before returning next week to Roland Garros where he will resume his bid for a second French Open title and a second Career Slam.
After a loss Sunday to Rafael Nadal in the Rome final, Djokovic tipped the Spaniard as the favorite to win again in Paris.
“Nadal, number one favorite, without a doubt, then everyone else,” Djokovic said.
“But I think it’s going to be a good tournament. Dominic Thiem is playing some really, really good tennis. He can beat anybody really, especially on clay. Fognini also playing great quality tennis. He showed it against Nadal in Monte-Carlo what he’s capable of.
“I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be a great tournament.”
Here’s now Novak stacks up with Nadal and Roger Federer when they turned 32:
Federer by 32d birthday
17 Grand Slam singles titles. 21 Masters 1000 singles titles. 302 weeks No. 1
