8-time Grand Slam champion, Andre Agassi, insists that World No.1 Novak Djokovic is a ‘level above’ his peers on the men’s tour, as he feels that the Serb is going to carry on his domination in the coming seasons.

Djokovic, 27, had a flourishing campaign this year, winning as many as 7 titles including the prestigious Wimbledon crown, besides finishing as the runner-up at the French Open and triumphing at the World Tour Finals in London.

“I have to (tip) Djokovic heading into the next year or two,” Agassi was quoted as saying by AFP, as mentioned in NDTV Sports. “He seems like he just can hit cruise control and be a level above, and that’s a huge luxury,” he added.

“He doesn’t have to play lights-out to beat the top guys, he just has to play contained which is a big statement to how well he’s playing.”

The fancied Serb winded up the season with an impressive win-loss record of 66-8 – his second best finish after 2011 (78-7), considering the number of defeats in a calendar year.
