Serena Williams' childhood coach Rick Macci believes Novak Djokovic "can win at least four more Grand Slams" if he stays healthy. Djokovic, 36, won three Grand Slam titles this year and only finished as runner-up at Wimbledon.

Djokovic, who is now a record 24-time Grand Slam champion, made the final in all four Grand Slams this year and that's a clear statement that the Serb is not going anywhere just yet. "Was asked how many more Slams can the @DjokerNole win.

If the Rubber Band Man stays healthy which is the Master key to the Majors Front Door I feel the Serbian Sniper can fire at least Four More," Macci wrote on X.

After beating Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final for his 24th Grand Slam title, Djokovic made it clear that he is not thinking about retirement.

“I feel good in my own body. I still feel I got the support of my environment, of my team, of my family. Knowing that I play at such a high level still and I win the biggest tournaments in this sport, I don’t want to leave this sport if I’m still at the top, you know, if I’m still playing the way I’m playing," Djokovic said.

Also, Djokovic addressed his Grand Slam numbers, saying he is not targeting a specific number. “I don’t put any number right now in my mind on how many slams I want to win until the end of my career. I don’t really have any number.

I’ll continue to prioritize them as my most important tournaments and where I want to play the best tennis. So that will not change. That will stay the same in the next season or I don’t know how many more seasons I have in my legs. So let’s see," Djokovic said.
