Following Novak Djokovic’s loss to Carlos Alcaraz in the Wimbledon final, a Montenegrin journalist labeled him the ‘loser of all times,’ pointing out his 12 Grand Slam final defeats, the highest in the Open Era despite being the record holder for the most Grand Slam wins. In an interview with Republika, Djokovic’s father fired back with strong words for the journalist, saying, “May God help that man. If he can even be helped, and if he really means everything he wrote.”

Djokovic’s journey in Grand Slam finals has seen its share of highs and lows. His first-ever Grand Slam final defeat came in 2007 at the US Open, losing to Roger Federer. Later, in the same competition in 2010, he faced defeat again, this time at the hands of Rafael Nadal. Further Grand Slam final losses include the 2012 French Open to Nadal, the 2012 US Open to Andy Murray, the 2013 Wimbledon to Murray, and two more losses to Nadal in successive events.
