Novak Djokovic wary of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer record affecting him in Wimbledon final

2 mins read

Novak Djokovic is wary of any distractions as he looks to close in on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s record for the most Grand Slams of all time this weekend. Victory in Sunday’s Wimbledon final will see the Serb win a record-equalling 20th major.

The world No 1 currently has 19 Grand Slam titles – just one behind the record shared by Federer and Nadal – and is one match away from another after seeing off Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals at SW19.

Victory on Sunday would also see him win a sixth Wimbledon title and claim a third straight triumph at the Championships.

Having won the Australian Open and Roland Garros title this year, he is currently still on course to win an unprecedented ‘Golden Slam’.

Winning Wimbledon along with Olympic gold and the US Open this year would strengthen his claim to be recognised as the greatest male tennis player of all time.

“Giving up is never an option.”

The world No 1 plays Italy’s Matteo Berrettini in Sunday’s final. Djokovic leads the head to head record between the pair 2-0.

They last met in the quarter-finals of the French Open last month with the Serb coming out on top in four sets.

Berrettini is looking to become the first Italian man to win Wimbledon, on the same day his country face England in the final of Euro 2020.
