Serbian Tennis sensation Novak Djokovic believes that he will make a world record for winning the most grand slam titles.

Media reports said that in an interview, Serbian tennis sensation said he will become the longest-reigning world No.1 by the time he retires. Having 17 grand slam titles to his name till now, just two behind Nadal and fewer than Federer, Novak Djokovic has no doubt in his ability to overtake the other members of Big Three.

“I’m always very confident in myself,”

“I believe I can win the most slams and break the record for longest No.1. Those are definitely my clear goals.”

In the wide-ranging interview, Djokovic also discussed past struggles with his health, his marriage and surviving the bombings in his native Serbia in 1999.  Novak Djokovic did not go through with his retirement plans and bounced back to triumph at Wimbledon that July.

The 32-year-old Serb was in imperious form before the coronavirus pandemic brought the circuit to a halt in early March. Earlier in March this year Serbian Tennis Icon Novak Djokovic captured a record-extending eighth Australian Open title playing against Austrian Dominic Thiem. Serbian Tennis Icon star fought back to beat fifth-seeded Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 over three hours and 59 minutes in Sunday’s final for his 17th Grand Slam championship crown. Only Roger Federer (20) and Rafael Nadal (19) have won more major singles titles in the sport’s history.

Djokovic capitalised on early nerves to win the first set against Thiem, who had won four of their past five ATP Head2Head meetings, but at 4-4 in the second set, Djokovic  first warned by the chair umpire for a service time violation.
