Fans from across the globe have posted videos on his Twitter fan page, wishing the 17-time Grand Slam champion all the best as he sets out to reach his goals in the new season.

The Serb is in sight of breaking Roger Federer’s record of spending the most number of weeks, 310 to be precise, as World Number 1 this year. He could also upstage the legendary Pete Sampras for the most number of calendar year-end number one finishes. He is currently tied with the American with six year-end number one rankings.

Djokovic could also make further strides in the race for the most number of Grand Slam titles this year. Federer and Rafael Nadal jointly top the tally with 20 titles apiece.

The Serb will also be eyeing his ninth Australian Open title this year which could further his record at this Slam.

Srecna Nova Godina, an unabashed Djokovic fan, posted a heartfelt video tagged with a caption that read, “@DjokerNole! We wish all the best for 2021”.

Amee and her spouse Brian, who, too, are ardent followers of the Serb, also shared a video where they hold up messages introducing themselves and wishing Djokovic the very best going into the new season. The post is titled, “Happy New Year Nole! Let your unique awesomeness and positive energy inspire confidence in others”.

In another post shared on a fan page, one of his young followers, Mia, holds up many messages full of good wishes and support. One of them reads, “Best wishes for the Australian Open. I’ll be supporting you all the way! See you @Melbourne Park.” Djokovic had invited Mia to play with him in one of his practice sessions during the Australian Open.

 

In another video, Lachlan, a young fan from Australia, wishes Djokovic “Good luck in the Australian Open!”, adding, “I’ll be cheering you on. Go NOVAK!”.
