“Getting closer to maybe Roger’s, Rafa’s record, Serena, Magaret,” he said.
“Look, everyone has their own journey and their own way of making history. I’m trying to build that and develop that myself in a very unique, authentic way that is suitable to me.
Goran Ivanisevic’s statement on Djokovic’s future
Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanisevic said his ninth Australian Open title was integral to getting him back on track in the hunt for the record books.
“He’s getting older and he needed [to win] if he wants to break the record, if he wants to catch Roger and Rafa,” said Ivanisevic.
“Rafa is going to win maybe one more, maybe two French Opens. You need to keep on winning. Novak is the favourite in Wimbledon and the US Open.”
Furthermore, Ivanisevic predicted both his player and Nadal would go on to surpass Federer in the record books.
A couple of years ago also Goran said that Rafa and Novak are going to overtake Roger, and he still believes in it. They surprise him everyday, with their magnificient skills.
“Maybe they’re going to surpass Margaret Court and Serena, maybe not”, he said.
Djokovic will focus on the Majors
Djokovic admitted after his straight-sets demolition of Medvedev that he was still motivated by the feats of both Federer and Nadal.
Adding to it, he said he would adjust his calendar to focus almost solely on the Majors in his quest for the record books.
It is unclear when Djokovic will return to action. He underwent a second MRI scan on Monday on his abdominal tear.
