Novak Djokovic reveals his ‘two most important goals’ for 2022

Novak Djokovic says representing Serbia as much as possible is now one of his top priorities for the rest of his career.

Djokovic has always been goal-driven, and this season set himself the target of amassing more weeks at world number one than anyone in history and taking the record for most majors won.

He achieved the first early on, and won the Australian Open, Roland Garros, and Wimbledon to draw level with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on 20 career majors.

Surpassing them will remain his top goal for 2022, although he has also stressed how important it is to him to continue to represent Serbia at the Davis Cup and ATP Cup.

“I have spoken about the importance of the majors, and I don’t know if you have seen it or heard it, but always when I said what are the biggest priorities for me at this stage of my career, I always said it’s Grand Slams and playing for national team,” Novak Djokovic said,

“Those are the two most important goals, let’s say, that I have throughout the years.

“I just feel so much motivation, and I am inspired to be part of the team. As long as I’m healthy, I’ll be there for the captain.

“I’ll try to be available always for the team, because the team competitions like Davis Cup, particularly Davis Cup that is the most historic team competition that we have in our sport that is an individual sport.

“Other than Davis Cup you have the ATP Cup, you have the two big competitions for team that just provoke the most beautiful emotions in me. I’m very motivated to play for Serbia.”
