Coach Patrick Mouratoglou thinks Novak Djokovic is not going to stop at 24 Grand Slam titles as he believes the Serb “still wants to be on top of the world.” This year, Djokovic accomplished something he was chasing for years – he became the sole all-time Grand Slam leader for the first time in his career.

Now that Djokovic has 24 Grand Slams and is two Slams clear ahead of Rafael Nadal and four Majors clear ahead of Roger Federer, many are wondering how far the Serb can actually go. Mouratoglou, who famously coached Serena Williams for a decade, believes Djokovic reaching 24 Grand Slam wins won’t change anything in his determination and hunger.

Mouratoglou: Djokovic still wants to be on top of the world

“He [Djokovic] wants to be the one on top of the world, on top of everyone. He wants to be the best. That’s what drove him. The fact that he’s now obviously the best with 24 titles, will not change it because he has competitors.

He has Carlos Alcaraz who’s pushing him a lot, Medvedev who’s pushing him a lot, and maybe tomorrow others that are going to push him a lot and he still wants to be on top of the world. It’s not something that he can accept to lose.

So he’s going to fight for that. He wants to make history. He wants to be the best undoubtedly of all time. And if he can make a record that will stay forever, that will never ever be beaten in the history, it’s enough to give him the utmost motivation and he has it,” Mouratoglou said on Tennis Majors’ “Eye of the Coach,” via Sportskeeda.

In January, Djokovic will attempt to win his 11th Australian Open and become the first-ever tennis player – male or female – to win 25 Grand Slams.
