‘Phenomenal’ Novak Djokovic tipped to break ultimate record: ‘It’s a possibility’

Tim Henman believes Novak Djokovic could break Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record, and it would be ‘phenomenal’ if he can. 

No one has won more than the 24 Grand Slam singles titles that Court amassed during her playing career. Serena Williams has 23 to her name, Steffi Graf has 22, and Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both have 20.

Novak Djokovic is next on the list with 17, but he is the youngest player currently chasing the record and appears to be the most durable.

And that, according to Amazon Prime and Eurosport analyst Henman, will give Djokovic a chance at a very special record.

“It’s not something I would totally put out of the equation,” Henman replied when asked if he thought Djokovic could challenge Court’s record.

“He’s 33 now so you’re saying he’s got to win two Slams a year.

“That’s a hell of an effort and he’s got to do that for another four years. I think that is asking a lot.

“But if you talk about him getting to 21, 22 then, you know, another couple added on top as the icing on the cake.

“The more you think about it – perhaps it is a possibility. It’s phenomenal.”
