Novak Djokovic: 'I have no issue saying I'm going for the Wimbledon title'

Novak Djokovic celebration Rome

Novak Djokovic says he is making no secret of the fact that he has his sights set on the Wimbledon title after winning both the Australian Open and French Open this year.

Djokovic picked up his second major of the year on Sunday, coming back from two sets down to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas to claim his 19th Grand Slam crown.

In doing so, he becomes the only man in the Open Era to have won more than one title and all four Slams and puts him one behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the overall Grand Slam race.

Now with Wimbledon only two weeks away, the world number one says his sights are set on a sixth win there and he is feeling confident he can do it.

"This year we have only two weeks between the first round of Wimbledon and the finals here, which is not ideal because you go from really two completely different surfaces, trying to make that transition as smooth as possible, as quickly and efficiently as possible, said Djokovic.

"So obviously I will enjoy this win and then think about Wimbledon in a few days’ time.

"I don’t have an issue to say that I’m going for the title in Wimbledon. Of course, I am," said Djokovic.

"I’ve had a great success in the last couple of Wimbledon seasons that were played. I won in ’18 and ’19 there. Hopefully I can keep that run going.

"I like the grass. Over the years I think I improved on grass, I adjusted my game. Hopefully I can use this confidence that I have right now into Wimbledon, as well. Then let’s take it from there."
