Novak Djokovic has achieved almost every fathomable goal in the tennis world. Pretty soon, he is expected to overtake Roger Federer and claim the most grand slams of all time.
However, there is one feather that he still misses in his cap. That is a gold medal at the Olympics. Despite being one of the best tennis players of all time, he doesn’t have an Olympic gold to show in his resume which would drastically increase his stock.
In addition to that, he is a proud Serbian. This means that not getting his country that accolade still hurts him. Novak Djokovic’s mother reflected on this sentiment.
What did Novak Djokovic’s mother say?
Novak’s mother revealed the emotional toll of not having an Olympic gold to show. She revealed that he was a patriot who wanted to do something for his country for all it had given him.
She was also hopeful that Novak would win more of the one grand slam trophy he lacks in his cabinet – The Roland Garros.
“We hope that maybe this year he will. We’ll see, I don’t want to say anything in advance.”
She talked about the probability of him winning the grand slam race and cementing his position.
“He needs just a little bit more. For me, he is already great of all times, he’s like God. but he needs the numbers you know.”
Everyone understands deep down that Novak Djokovic has the best chances to emerge as the winner of the grand slam race. He’s currently performing the best across grand slams. It will be interesting to see if his dominance is challenged in the near future.
