No Bold Predictions From Djokovic

No Bold Predictions From Djokovic Sports pundit

Novak Djokovic may have celebrated his sixth career major title on Sunday when he won the Australian Open crown but he’s not dreaming about overcoming Roger Federer’s 17-slam mark just yet.

Djokovic triumphed over Andy Murray in four sets in Sunday’s decider, to take his career tally to six at the ripe age of just 25-years-old.

Federer, on the other hand, at 31-years-old, is unlikely to add too many more major titles to his 17, but it’s a mark which history suggests will be extremely difficult to break.

The likes of John McInroe, Bjorn Borg, Mats Wilander, Pete Sampras and even Federer were all younger than Djokovic is now when they won their sixth slam.

And Djokovic isn’t dreaming about overcoming Federer’s remarkable record.

“I’m just trying to play this game with 100 per cent of devotion, love, passion and fun also,” Djokovic said.

“(I am) 25 years old and I won six grand slams and have a lot of trophies. It’s amazing.

“I’m just trying to embrace this moment and enjoy it as much as I can and see where tomorrow brings me.”
