Race To Turin Rankings:
Novak Djokovic equals Federer and Nadal
After winning Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic is now tied for the first time with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at 20 majors. He also has age on his side and given his form, he could easily surpass Federer and Nadal and take the all time lead.
The Serbian superstar can also achieve a rare calendar slam by winning the US Open and could also win the Olympic gold in Tokyo, the only piece of silverware missing from his elite cabinet of trophies. And given his current run, Djokovic could realistically win both the Olympic gold and the US Open to complete a golden slam.
