Does the Djoker want to jump for the most ATP titles record?

Now that he has 24 grand slam titles and 40 Masters titles, the next step for him is to conquer the overall ATP titles record, which is held by Jimmy Connors. The American player sits at the top with a comfortable 109 singles titles, followed by Federer’s 103. The Serbinator himself has not shared any desire to break Connor’s record at the moment, but the American legend is all for it.
