Novak Djokovic's father, Srdjan, said that the 15-time Grand Slam winner is likely to overtake Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Speaking on TV, following the Serb's seventh triumph in Melbourne, Srdjan said: "His wish is that by the end of his tennis career, which will last several more years, he will surpass the records of Nadal and Federer.
He is simply too ambitious and too good not to do that. If he had not sustained that injury, he would be a step away from that goal. This way he is just two steps away. And trust me, he will succeed." Speaking on Djokovic's chances to win the French Open this year, the tennis expert David Law said: "When he won that French Open last time, that was climbing the ultimate peak individually and as a group he'd won four in a row but he'd finally won the French Open.
It took him so much to win the French Open and imagine how that must have felt for him. I really do understand the burnout. We poke a bit of fun about some of the stuff he says, I don't understand half of it. Who cares what I understand and what I don't, it bloody works for him and keeps him in a frame of mind that is perfect for high octane, intense sport because he is able to overcome whatever it is."
Djokovic is enjoying winter holidays in the northern of Italy, he will not play any tournament in February and he will back on the road at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells
