When speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Nadal admitted that when it comes to numbers Djokovic is ‘indisputably’ better, “I believe that numbers are numbers and statistics are statistics. In that sense, I think he (Djokovic) has better numbers than mine and that is indisputable.”

The 37-year-old continued, “This is the truth. The rest are tastes, inspiration, sensations that one or the other may transmit to you. That you may like one or the other more. I think that with respect to titles, Djokovic is the best in history and there is nothing to discuss about that.

“As always, everyone can see the story as they wish, saying that I suffered many injuries. Bad luck for me or bad luck that I had my body this way. He has had another one and in some ways that is also part of the sport. I congratulate him for everything he is achieving and it doesn’t cause me any kind of frustration.”

Djokovic has been battling with Alcaraz for the No.1 ranking through the entirety of 2023, and the 20-year-old has inflicted the Serb’s only defeat at a major this year in the Wimbledon final.
