Novak Djokovic: 'I could definitely envision that happening'

Novak Djokovic continues to make history and is on his way to becoming the GOAT of “white sport”. Minutes after his coronation at Wimbledon 2021, the Serbian tennis player received a very special congratulation that would surely raise more than one smile.

It was from the Swiss Roger Federer, who took advantage of his Twitter account to send an emotional message to the world's number one. “Congratulations to Novak on his 20th Grand Slam. I am proud to have the opportunity to play in a special era of tennis champions.

Wonderful performance, well done!” Wrote the “Swiss express”. Federer and Rafael Nadal were tied for their record of 20 Grand Slams by the Serbian, who is going to fly past them in a record that is now triple-tied at the top.

Roger Federer, 39, returned to the circuit after two operations on his left knee and more than a year standing, with the sole objective of adding more "big" titles. His first test was at Roland Garros where he left in the round of 16 prior to the game against Italian Matteo Berrettini.

Then the opportunity came at Wimbledon, his favorite tournament, where he was left in the quarterfinals at the hands of Pole Hubert Hurkacz. There, on the British turf, hopes were placed for the Swiss to increase his record in "big" tournaments, but unfortunately for his cause the play did not come out.

Do you see any chance that Roger Federer could go for another Grand Slam title?

"Something shifted end of 2010, the beginning of 2011. The last ten years has been an incredible journey that's not stopping here." The Serb said he "can envision" himself winning the Calendar Slam. "I could definitely envision that happening.

I am hoping. I am definitely going to give it a shot," he said. "I am in great form, obviously playing well. Playing my best tennis at Grand Slams is the highest priority I have at this stage of my career. So, let's keep it going."
