Djokovic is undoubtedly one of the biggest advocates for the beauty of Serbia. In the initial part of his career, the 17-time Grand Slam winner had squarely declined the offer of British citizenship. Additionally, with his foundation, the Serbian aims to go as far as possible for his country.

Closing his 2020 season as World No. 1 for a record-equalling 6 time, Djokovic cannot ask for more. But he definitely aims to break more records in time. The reigning Australian Open champion is not very far from Roger Federer and his 310 weeks at Number 1 record.

The Grand Slam race is very much alive for the Big Three even after more than a decade of dominance. With Federer and Rafael Nadal equalling at 20, the Serbian will be highly motivated to win major tournaments next season.

Novak wrote, “Blessed to experience first snow in Serbian mountains. I’m sending everyone best wishes, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. I hope next year will bring joy, happiness, love, many blessings to everyone.”
