Eugenie Bouchard suggested Novak Djokovic makes winning Grand Slams look easy following the Serb’s latest accomplishment. On Sunday, Djokovic saw off Daniil Medvedev 6-3 7-6 (5) 6-3 in the US Open final for his 24th Grand Slam title.
In men’s tennis, Djokovic owns an all-time record of 24 Grand Slams. In all of tennis, Djokovic is now tied with Margaret Court with 24 Slams. “Like it’s nothing. What a legend,” Bouchard captioned her Instagram Story.

After winning his third Grand Slam of the season, Djokovic confirmed he is not planning to retire anytime soon.
Also, 36-year-old Djokovic joked he will be around for 23 or 24 more years. “I feel good in my own body. I still feel I got the support of my environment, of my team, of my family. Knowing that I play at such a high level still and I win the biggest tournaments in this sport, I don’t want to leave this sport if I’m still at the top, you know, if I’m still playing the way I’m playing.
Eventually one day I will leave tennis in about 23, 24 years. And there is going to be new young players coming up. Until then, I guess you’ll see me a bit more,” Djokovic said. When it comes to his Grand Slam numbers, Djokovic insists there is not a specific number that he is targeting.
“I don’t put any number right now in my mind on how many slams I want to win until the end of my career. I don’t really have any number. I’ll continue to prioritize them as my most important tournaments and where I want to play the best tennis.
So that will not change. That will stay the same in the next season or I don’t know how many more seasons I have in my legs. So let’s see,” Djokovic said.
