Novak Djokovic is setting his sights pretty high with his coach Marian Vajda revealing he wants to win all four majors in a calendar year.
After struggling at the backend of the 2017 season and the start of the 2018 campaign due to injury, Djokovic bounced back brilliantly during the second half of last year as he won Wimbledon and the US Open to take his Grand Slam tally to 14.
He also finished the year as the world No 1 and many have made him favourite to win the season-opening Australian Open.
His mentor Vadja made no secret of the fact that they have big fish to fry as he not only wants to win all four Grand Slams in a year, but are targeting Roger Federer’s record of 20 majors.
“Novak would like to win the calendar Grand Slam, to win all four of the biggest tournaments in the same year,” he Vajda told Sport Klub.
He added: “We have also talked about (beating) Roger Federer’s record, Novak currently has 14 titles, and Roger 20. In order to do all this, he needs to work hard and be healthy.”
