After Novak Djokovic had broken Roger Federer’s record of staying at the top of the ATP rankings for more than 310 consecutive weeks back in March, the Serbian had stated his focus will be entirely on winning Grand slams after breaking Federer’s big record.
Djokovic recently won his 19th Major title as he clinched his second French Open title after defeating Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas in a five-set thrilling match. If Djokovic goes on to win the upcoming Wimbledon Championship then he will draw level with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s tally of 20 slams.
“I have 19 Major titles, so I know what’s the perspective with 19. With 20, I don’t know, hopefully I can find out in a few weeks. Well, let’s see,” Djokovic said.
“Grand Slams are the biggest motivation I have right now, at this stage of my career. I have been saying that before, I wanna try to make the most out of Grand Slams as I possibly can, trying to peak at the Majors and I’ve been managing to do that throughout my career,” the current World No.1 said.
Djokovic is fit as a fiddle and he is going to enter Wimbledon as a front contender for the title as Federer is not at the top of his game yet after undergoing two knee surgeries.
The Serbian added that he has been lucky to play his best Tennis when it has mattered the most. The World no.1 was able to bounce back in the Roland Garros final against Stefanos Tsitsipas despite being two sets down.
“I have had (the) fortune to really play my best tennis when it mattered the most, I think,” the Serb said.
Djokovic will face Britain’s Jack Draper in the first round of Wimbledon on Monday.
