Novak Djokovic has admitted that he might not match Roger Federer’s record of 17 Grand Slam titles.
The 29-year-old, who made a winning return to the tennis circuit on Tuesday, says he has done a lot of thinking in recent months. Djokovic says he is more focused on enjoying the game and everything else is secondary.
“Right now, no,” he said, when asked if surpassing Federer’s 17 major titles was still one of his goals.
“I don’t think about that at all.
“I don’t think about any trophies or number ones in the world, rankings, anything like that. It’s completely different.
“It is there, because I play partly because I enjoy being successful and seeing the results of my work. But on the other hand that comes second.”
Djokovic completed a career Grand Slam — and a run of four straight major titles — at the French Open in June.
