Novak Djokovic’s comments on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s Wimbledon records
Novak Djokovic is on the verge of tying Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s men’s Grand Slam record.
Novak Djokovic has made no secret of his aim to be the player to win the most Grand Slam championships by the conclusion of his career. When Federer was at the zenith of his powers, the Serbian tennis prodigy had just burst onto the scene, smashing Pete Sampras’ Grand Slam count of 15.
While Djokovic was only getting started, Rafael Nadal was established himself as one of the best players of all time.

“That’s how my previous year and a half went, and that’s probably how the rest of my career will go in terms of tournament scheduling.”
After defeating Denis Shapovalov in the semi final, Djokovic was asked about the possibility of catching up to Federer and Nadal.
“Well, that would mean everything,” says the narrator. That’s why I’ve come,” he explained.
