Djokovic’s father wants his son to follow in Nadal’s footsteps and retire in 2024

Djokovic is still hungry, but his family is too satisfied with what he has done.

In 2023, 36-year-old Novak Djokovic is still the best star, he collected 3 more Grand Slams, 1 ATP Finals, 2 Masters 1000 and 1 ATP 250. It would be crazy if someone said that “The Djoker” would retire at the end of 2024 but this is the wish of Nole’s family, especially his father, Mr. Srdjan.

Mr. Srdjan recently told Sportal: “In fact, the family was satisfied with what Nole did 7 or 8 years ago. Tennis is only a part of Novak’s life. It will only be recognized. Recognizing my achievements and talent at the end of my career, I hope my son will retire next year.”

Srdjan criticized the media for never wanting to recognize what his son had accomplished. The 62-year-old man stated: “Federer is the first player in men’s tennis history to reach 310 weeks of holding No. 1. When Nole passed, they said Steffi Graf had 370 weeks of holding No. No. 1, people want Novak to reach 500 weeks.”

Nole’s father talked about the difficulties he experienced with his son: “When we started, we were alone, with no one to support us. We were jealous of children from rich countries, they had The whole team of coaches and caregivers accompanied us. But we overcame all difficulties to be successful today. As a father, I was very satisfied with what my son could do.”

Rafael Nadal has announced that he will retire at the end of 2024, and if Nole fulfills his father’s wish, the 2025 tennis season will lack two living legends.

But this may be difficult to happen, Djokovic is still showing great form at the age of 36, he also announced that he will only retire when he is no longer able to win against his opponents.
