Djokovic aiming to break records like Lewis Hamilton
Lewis Hamilton, 6 time Formula One champion added another record to his tally as he broke Michael Schumacer’s record of most Formula One wins at the Portugal Grand Prix. Hamilton secured his 92nd career victory after a magnificent drive that saw him 25 seconds clear of his 2nd placed Mercedes driver, Valtteri Bottas. With his victory, Hamilton also moved 79 points clear of Bottas in the rankings and is almost certain to claim his 7th Formula One championship.
Novak Djokovic, 17 time Grandslam champion also posted an Instagram story congratulating the Brit for his incredible achievement. The Serbian tennis star himself is chasing a few records. He is eyeing the historic World number one position and is currently in his 292nd week at the top of the rankings, behind Federer’s tally of 310 weeks.
Djokovic also aims to surpass Federer and Nadal’s tally of 20 Grandslams and become the player to win the most major titles. The Serbian failed to win at either the US Open or the French Open after the season restarted but will have his eyes set on the Australian Open 2021 title where he will be the outright favourite.
