Srdjan Djokovic is hopeful that his son’s retirement, Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic is as close as 2024.

He said that he is a proud father seeing that his son has fulfilled all his wishes in tennis and in life.

Srdjan who has been at the centre of his son’s career says that Djokovic fulfilled a set of seven wishes he had eight years ago.

Djokovic has dominated the sport in recent years, breaking the mark for the most Grand Slams won by a man in the Open Era and setting a record for the most weeks spent at No. 1 with 389 weeks.

Despite his 23 Grand Slams so far, the Serbian is not thinking about retiring. He said in the past that he still has several other goals to achieve in tennis before he chooses to retire.

But, his father opines that tennis is physically and intellectually taxing which is why he is convinced that Djokovic’s retirement is coming up.

Srdjan in Sportal’s NOVAK Untold stories documentary notes that his wish was for Djokovic to retire a few years ago.

He is surprised that 30 years after Djokovic started out in tennis, he is not willing to step off the court and head out for retirement.

“It is my wish as a father, that is, I thought that he should have stopped playing a long time ago in this terribly difficult job,” Srdjan said.

“This is not a sport, this is terribly hard work, in every way, both physically and mentally. Because he still has very little of life because he is maximally dedicated to this job, it’s been 30 years and he doesn’t give up on it even a bit.”

Now playing at 36 is just a bonus and Srdjan’s general feeling is that people will know Djokovic better by the activities he takes on after his retirement which he is hopeful will be in 2024.

Djokovic while speaking at the 2023 Wimbledon said that 36 is the new 26 when he lost to Carlos Alcaraz in the final. He is convinced that he will keep playing as long as he enjoys it.

Prior to Wimbledon, Djokovic won the French Open, putting him one Grand Slam ahead of Rafael Nadal who has 22 slams yet but missed Roland Garros due to a longstanding injury.

The Serbian tennis star in the past admitted to having thoughts about retirement and what life would be like in this new reality.

Still, he brushed off these thoughts noting that he still has the strength to push longer despite the fact that he has experienced bodily changes.

His injuries take longer to heal and there is more pain from his injuries than there was before.

Therefore, his retirement has no definite date and much of it depends on his physical condition much as his mental state counts.

“It depends on everything, on the mentality, how much motivation I have because I have already achieved everything in sports. I think about it, but I don’t think about it all the time. I don’t like to look at age as a deciding factor, I look at my condition and whether I’m enjoying it,” he said pre-2023 Wimbledon.
