World Number 1 Novack Djokovic have admits that he is now prioritizing Grand Slam after claiming victory in his eight Australian Open over the weekend.
“Obviously at this stage of my career, Grand Slams are the ones I value the most,” Djokovic said. “They are the ones I prioritise. Before the season starts, I try to set my form, shape for these events where I can be at my prime.
“Of course there’s a lot of history on the line. I do have professional goals. Grand slams are one of the main reasons why I am still competing and still playing a full season, trying to obviously get the historic number one.
“That’s the other big goal. I put myself in this position that is really good at the moment. I’m super happy with the way I started the season.
Novack Djokovic also reclaimed the world No 1 ranking from Nadal, beginning his 276th week at the top of the standings. Federer’s record of 310 weeks is another well within Djokovic’s sights, and he has made no secret of how much of a target that is.
