Novak Djokovic looking to equal Pete Sampras' tally at Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic is in search of a seventh Wimbledon title this year

The 35-year-old, who missed the Australian Open owing to his vaccination status, fell behind in the Grand Slam race even as his arch-rival Rafael Nadal won the Australian Open.

A loss against Nadal in the quarterfinals of the French Open dealt a blow to Djokovic's hopes while the Spaniard widened the gap by winning his 22nd Grand Slam title in Paris.

A victory at the Italian Open remains Djokovic's only title win this season and the six-time Wimbledon champion has not played any tour-level matches post his quarterfinal loss at the French Open.

Even so, he remains hopeful of equalling Pete Sampras' tally of seven Wimbledon titles owing to a history of winning at SW19 on five occasions (2011, 2014, 2015, 2019 and 2021) without playing any preparatory tournaments on grass.

The Serb became the only player to have won 80 matches or more in all the Grand Slam tournaments following his first round at Wimbledon this year.

The tournament's official Twitter account cheered Djokovic on to improve his tally to 100 wins before the "youngsters" took over, in a humorous reference to his son who was described as "a chip of the old block."

"Let's get to 100 [match wins at Wimbledon] before the youngsters take over"

Stefan Djokovic is a chip off the old block
