“The love for this sport still burns in me” Novak Djokovic ranks himself above Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray in the Wimbledon championship battle

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has always felt driven to win more and more titles over the years, and despite trailing another phenomenon, Roger Federer, by two Wimbledon titles, he is currently leading the special group of the ‘Big Three’ in terms of claiming supremacy on the grass court.

Rafael Nadal’s victory in this year’s Rolland Garros pushed Novak to give his best performance in the ongoing Wimbledon Championship as he smartly began his journey by beating Soonwoo Kwon of South Korea in the first round.

Novak’s Records at the Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic is currently ranked World No. 3 in Men’s Standings and recently won the Italian Open on the ATP Tour Masters 1000.

The Serbian Maestro is the perfect grass court player after Federer as he has already claimed six titles with a record number of points on the court and is also a better player than Rafael Nadal on the courts of Britain. 

This year, Djokovic is competing in Wimbledon with a view to closing the gap between him and ex-tennis legend Pete Sampras, as the American won seven titles, just one more than Novak.

What motivated Djokovic to surpass other legends in Wimbledon?

Novak Djokovic is pursuing his seventh title in Wimbledon Championship this year and after a hard fought first round win, he opened up on his thirst for achieving the peak by saying, “I am as dedicated as anyone out there,”

The Serbinator happily described that he has never been more prepared than this year’s championship as he now has the opportunity to surpass the records of Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.

Djokovic also claimed, “I am not one of the youngsters anymore, but the love for the sport still burns in me and I try to always play my best tennis at the Grand Slams and deliver my best tennis at the best courts. Now that we’re at 80 [wins at Wimbledon], let’s get to 100.”
