By winning the US Open, Novak Djokovic becomes the third active player to win double-digits Grand Slam titles. With 10 now to his name, Djokovic is now just four wins behind Rafael Nadal and Pete Sampras who has 14 and seven away from matching Roger Federer’s 17.
Djokovic is just 28 and in the prime of his career. And with Federer aging, Nadal on the decline, and few threats other than Andy Murray, who he has beaten 8 of out 9 times, Djokovic is going to be favored to win many more Slams to come.
But will he?
Federer has won two more Slams after turning 28. Sampras also only two, but Andre Agassi did win five, the most anyone has won after turning 28.
Djokovic, who has already won two after 28, would need three more to equal Andre’s then break that record by another two to match Federer.
