“I think he will [surpass Sampras’ record for most year-end No 1s and Federer’s record for most weeks as No 1] but the only guy I’m thinking is that Nadal might have more Slams than him,” Rusedski told Express Sport of Djokovic.
“Djokovic is going to surpass Federer, he won’t have the most wins or the most titles but he will surpass him for most Grand Slam titles.
“I think the battle is between two guys. Not winning that US Open, that would’ve taken him to 18 instead of 17 and now Nadal, you’ve got to give him the French unless Thiem can knock him off his pedestal in Paris.
“That’s the only guy who can beat him in my opinion there. He needs two Slams next year at least, or three.
“It becomes fascinating, there’s so many curveballs. The next generation of guys are sick of this big three!”
