‘Novak Djokovic will not stop until he has all records’, says Alexander Zverev
Alexander Zverev believes world No. 1 Novak Djokovic will not stop until he breaks every tennis record because he is still hungry for success.
World No. 6 Zverev, and Djokovic, are both in action at this week’s Monte Carlo Masters and could meet in the quarter-finals.
The German was asked at the Masters 1000 event how big an achievement it was for Djokovic to break the record for most weeks ranked world No. 1 last month.
“Novak, all the records that he has, they speak for themselves. You can say so many things, he’s won this, he’s won that, he has the record for most weeks at number one,” Zverev said in an interview with ATP Tennis TV.
“But the interesting thing is to see how hungry he still is. How determined he still is to break even more records, and he’s not going to stop until he has all records that you can have.
“It’s great to see, he’s great for our sport and I hope he will continue playing for a long time. But I hope I’ll be able to beat him a few more times in my career (laughs).”
“I wish you a stellar, universal performance here – all the way to the quarters” 🤪
