Novak Djokovic will try to win his 6th Wimbledon title and, above all, his 20th Slam, on the lawns of the All England Club, for the 134th edition of the Championships. The eternal fight at the GOAT and who will finish with more titles Grand Slam in history is a topic of great discussion these days, on the sidelines of the upcoming Wimbledon.
The number one in the world and this year's winner of the Australian Open and Roland Garros, is at 19, one step away from the record of 20 Slams held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard will not participate in Wimbledon while the Swiss, on the threshold of 40 years-old, will hardly be able to win the twenty-first Grand Slam, albeit in his beloved grass.
In the press conference Novak Djokovic dealt with this theme, talking about the fight on who will finish with the most Slams between the three and at the same time the so-called fight at the GOAT, the one who will be remembered as the greatest tennis player of all time.
Novak Djokovic: "About the GOAT, I think…"
The number one in the world made the following statements at the conference: "Right now I have 19 Grand Slams and I know that at the moment even if I don't have 20 Grand Slams close yet, I hope to be able to get there in a few weeks. Grand Slam tournaments are the biggest motivation I have at this stage of my career, I've said that many times before.
I am in the final phase of my career, I want to make the most of these tournaments to reach higher and higher heights by playing my best tennis. In the last year and a half I have always done this and I think it will be like this until the end of my career."
The Serbian champion also talked about the fight at GOAT: "The biggest challenge is to stay at a great level at the moment, beyond the various options that we have available. For me there is still a lot at stake and I think so for Rafa and Roger. The three of us have had great success, especially in Grand Slam tournaments and I understand that people love to argue about who is the best.
Off the pitch a lot of things happen but off the pitch I try to exclude any distraction and I feel that it is something I have managed to do over the years. Here at Wimbledon I will work day by day so that I can win the twentieth Grand Slam."
