I root for Novak Djokovic to pass Federer's 20 Majors, says Andre Agassi

In an interview at the Australian Open the eight-time Grand Slam winner Andre Agassi commented on Novak Djokovic's chances to overtake Roger Federer's 20 Grand Slam titles. This month in Melbourne the Serb is seeking his 15th Major and his run has been great so far.

But can Djokovic overtake one of his biggest rivals? ‘It’s a good question', Agassi admitted. 'It's hard to get inside somebody’s head. My hope was that I added but it takes two, you know. ‘There’s probably a lot of things along the way that I was force feeding, I don’t know if that takes a while to process or I don’t know if I created more angst in his life but at the end of the day, tennis is getting the results of what it deserves, which is him being at the highest level.

‘I’m thrilled to see him doing it, he’s somebody I… I root for him, too. I was convinced when we started he would win two a year for the next three or four years and he’s certainly on pace for that!

My hope is that Grigor has something to say but you never know, right? I believe that coming into this tournament with so much tennis left, all we can do is point at history and history says that Novak is at his best and ready to do it again.

He certainly loves playing down here and it certainly fits him pretty well so of course he’d be the favourite coming in.’ ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
