After winning the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic aims to surpass the 20 Grand Slam record held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
“After hitting the number one week in the world, I will focus more on conquering the Grand Slam,” Novak Djokovic told ATP after the Australian Open final on February 21. “When I aim to be number one in the world, I have to play most of the season. Now I will adapt to the new conditions and change a little bit of schedule. I don’t have to, but because Married, I’m really looking forward to it. “
Djokovic has not revealed his next tournament after the Australian Open. He suffered a abdominal muscle injury in his first week in Melbourne and will need time to rest. At the age of 33, the Serbian tennis player did not hide his ambition to set a single Grand Slam record in the coming years.
“Everyone has their own journey and a way to make history,” said Djokovic. “I try to make a mark in this sport. I want to develop myself. I think about the records, especially the Grand Slam. When I retire, I want to win as many Grand Slams as possible.”
The Grand Slam men’s singles record belongs to Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer with 20 titles each. In the women’s singles, Margaret Court holds a record 24 trophies, and Serena Williams owns 23 titles.
“Roger and Rafa have always inspired me,” added Djokovic. “I think as long as they play, I’ll keep going. It’s like a race between us. We compete in every league and in many areas. It’s a competition that’s positive because we push. We pushed each other to their limits. “
