Former Spanish tennis player Alex Corretja casts doubt on Novak Djokovic‘s potential Golden Slam in 2024, citing age and increased competition as challenges.

As the 2024 tennis season approaches with the Paris Olympics on the horizon, anticipation is building for a thrilling year on the courts. While promising newcomers like Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner, and Holger Rune are set to make their Olympic debut, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is eyeing his fifth appearance at the event.

Despite Djokovic’s impressive track record, having narrowly missed the calendar year Grand Slam thrice before, the prospect of a Golden Slam—winning the 2024 Olympic gold in addition to all four Grand Slams—remains uncertain. Alex Corretja, a former Spanish tennis player, expressed his skepticism in an interview with Eurosport.

Corretja acknowledged Djokovic’s remarkable form and past successes but emphasized that achieving a Golden Slam at Djokovic’s age would be “a little bit surprising.” The former player highlighted the inevitable impact of age on recovery, noting that, despite improvements in Djokovic’s game, the natural aging process could affect his ability to bounce back during tournaments.

While expressing confidence in Djokovic’s ability to secure more Grand Slam victories, Corretja also acknowledged that the competition would intensify. As Djokovic faces a field of emerging talents and seasoned competitors, the road to victory becomes increasingly challenging.

As the tennis world eagerly awaits the unfolding drama of the 2024 season, the debate over Djokovic’s potential Golden Slam adds an intriguing dimension to the narrative. Will the Serbian maestro overcome the challenges of age and heightened competition, or will 2024 prove to be a formidable test of his enduring prowess on the court?
