Tennis legend Bjorn Borg recently shared his perspective on Novak Djokovic’s relentless pursuit of titles at this stage of his career. At 36 years old, Djokovic is set to make his debut at the ATP Finals, where he is vying to capture the title for a record-breaking 7th time, surpassing Roger Federer’s previous record.
Despite his age, Djokovic remains driven to achieve new milestones. Currently holding the world No. 1 position, he has maintained his competitive edge for over 12 years and continues to add to his impressive list of accomplishments. With three out of four Grand Slam titles under his belt this year, Djokovic shows no signs of slowing down.
Borg, an 11-time Grand Slam champion, commented that Djokovic’s motivation goes beyond personal glory. “Novak, I think he might win one or two more Grand Slam tournaments. Who knows? But he is doing it not for himself but for tennis and journalists. Unbelievable. He’s still pushing the limits. He wants to be the greatest,” said Borg.
Looking ahead, Djokovic is focused on securing another title at the Finals and maintaining his world No. 1 ranking. His first opponent, Holger Rune, presents a formidable challenge with a 2-2 head-to-head record. Following the Finals, Djokovic will also lead Serbia in the Davis Cup quarterfinals against Great Britain.
