The 32-year-old secure 17 Grand Slam titles and Rafal Nadal and Roger Federer are behind him.
“I’m always very confident in myself,” he said in an interview on In Depth with Graham Bensinger. “I believe I can win the most slams and break the record for longest number one. Those are definitely my clear goals.”
Before the pandemic which halted the sporting world, Djokovic was in a great form.

“And I was like, ‘What?’ And he goes like, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘Edoardo, you can speak with my sponsors. I want to be clear with them. I don’t know if I’m stopping for six months, a year or forever.’“
