“When you make shots like that, and you win matches like that, you sort of go down in, like, the folklore, in the history books. It puts you at a level where suddenly you could be talked about as like one of the greatest players that ever lived,” McEnroe said. “I really respect the ability of a guy like Novak to find a way to be able to pull stuff like that off.”
Budge and Laver went 4 for 4 at Grand Slam tournaments within a calendar year. So there are those who quickly point out that Djokovic’s feat wouldn’t be considered a true Grand Slam, because it’s spread over two seasons.
Would be quite impressive nonetheless, though.
“If he was able to win four in a row? Man, I’d take four in a row any day. It’s not technically the `Grand Slam,’” McEnroe said, “but I’d come up with some statue or something that said I had four in a row, and I’d be parading it around my house for the rest of my life.”
