Novak Djokovic says he is confident he will end his career as the greatest grand slam title winner of all time and break the record for weeks in the world number one spot.

The Serb has 17 majors, three back from the record of roger federer’s 20 and two behind the 19 of Rafael Nadal.

Before the coronavirus brought the season to a halt, Djokovic had captured an Australian Open and was on an 18-0 winning streak of the year.

Federer leads the way on 310 with the long-retired Pete Sampras on 286.

However, time is comfortably on the side of Djokovic who will celebrate his 33rd birthday on May 22.
