The Serb has 17 Majors, three behind Roger Federer’s record 20 and two behind Rafael Nadal.

“I think that I still have things to do in this sport. I believe that I can win the most Slams and break the record for most weeks at No. 1. Those are definitely my clear goals,” Djokovic told in a TV show.

Play till 40

Djokovic, who who will celebrate his 33rd birthday on May 22, sees himself still playing at 40. “I don’t believe in limits. I definitely want to go for a long time,” he said.

“I will not be able to play at this intensity, with this many tournaments and this much travelling, for a long time. There will probably be a focus on the biggest tournaments and the tournaments that mean the most to me.”

Djokovic has been on top of the rankings for a combined total of 282 weeks.

Federer leads the way on 310 with the long-retired Pete Sampras on 286.
