After claiming his first Laureus award, Novak Djokovic is still hungry for more acclaim. The World No. 1 has his sights firmly set on winning more.
Having just won the Australian Open, Djokovic is now aiming for the only major titles he’s missing, the French Open and the summer Olympics.
“I think everything is possible,” Djokovic said when asked if he could sweep all four Slams. “I have to stay optimistic. I have to believe in what I do. I have to believe in my abilities and believe I can win on all surfaces. I’ve proven on numerous occasions, especially in the last two years, that I can really be one of the candidates to win every Grand Slam on every surface.
“Obviously Roland Garros is the one to win this year.”
Djokovic also spoke about the issues with the tennis calendar, which he says is not optimal for the players.
“Tennis has become a lot more physical than it was 10-15-20 years ago,” Djokovic said. “Considering that fact, I believe that there should be some changes for the good of sport,for the good of tennis players. We’ve seen a lot of injuries lately in the last year and a half or two and this is not good for anybody. There is no use of top players being injured.
“We’re already working towards find a solution for that issue. It’s not going to be easy because your have to consider tournaments,” he said. “But we sincerely hope to have better scheduling so we can have healthier lives after we finish our careers.”
Djokovic is enjoying some time off before he’ll return to tour at the end of the month in Dubai.
