Novak Djokovic’s Schedule for the 2021 Season

January 6, 2021 3:20 pm

The Serbian ace Novak Djokovic had everything going for him in the 2020 season. After ending the year as the World No. 1 for the sixth time, he equaled the record of American legend Pete Sampras.

But standing at 17 Grand Slams, Djokovic is still three major titles behind both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Therefore, his primary goal in 2021 will be to shorten the gap in the GOAT race.

Additionally, the 33-year-old is very close to the Swiss maestro’s record of 310 weeks spent as the top player. Now, it seems highly unlikely that anybody could stop him from breaking Federer’s record.

Novak participated in mere nine tournaments in 2020 since the tennis season was cut short due to the pandemic outbreak. Of the nine, the Serbian won four titles including the Australian Open, and he finished as the runner-up at the French Open.

Moving forward, he will definitely have big aspirations for the 2021 season. For Djokovic, there are many records lined up this year that he will want to break. Take a look at the tournaments where the Serbian is expected to play.
