‘I’ll be around for many more years’ – Novak Djokovic not thinking of retiring any time soon
Novak Djokovic says that longevity is his priority, as he hopes that if he can match Roger Federer in that regard he will break all other records.
Djokovic’s greatest rival in recent years has probably been Rafael Nadal, who he is currently vying with for the coveted year-end world number one spot.
His greatest triumph this season, though, was defeating Federer in arguably the greatest Wimbledon final of all time.
The three have been locked in a battle to break each other’s records for over a decade, though, but Djokovic believes Federer has the magic formula he needs to replicate.
“It’s hard to pick one,” Djokovic told reporters when asked which record he would most like to break.
“I think I would like to play tennis for a long time.
“I don’t know how long that is going to be, but I wish to really play pretty long.
“So hopefully you’ll be seeing me around for many more years.”
Djokovic is currently third in the all-time Grand Slam titles list behind Federer and Nadal, but has plenty other records in his sights, including number of year-end world number ones and total weeks spent at the top of the rankings.
