Novak Djokovic sounds like he is chomping at the bit for another chance winning a fourth straight Slam for a second time in his career this week at the French Open. Djokovic, who just turned 32, will also try to become the first man in the Open Era to win two Career Slams. O
Of course, all he has to do is win seven match and 28 sets, and likely beat Rafael Nadal to do it! But he can’t wait to try.
“This is the tournament I was preparing for, so to say, for last couple of months I wanted to peak in this tournament and this is where I want to play my best tennis,” Djokovic said Friday in Paris.
“I’m sure I’m not the only one, but there’s extra motivation and incentive to win Roland Garros because of the opportunity to hold all four slams, something I did three years ago, and that gives me enough reason to believe I can do it again.”
Djokovic, who has won eight of his last nine matches, begins play Monday in Paris against Hubert Hurkacz.
