“I'm proud of all my achievements, and I try to stay present and stay in the moment,” the 22-time major champion deadpanned after his 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 semi-final triumph over Carlos Alcaraz on Friday. “I know the job is not finished and we have another match.”
Djokovic has his sights set on history, but he isn’t getting ahead of himself.
“I put myself in another really ideal position to win a Grand Slam," he said. "That's basically what still drives me when I wake up in the morning and think about the season and think about things I want to achieve. The Grand Slams are what drives me the most.
“As far as all the records that are on the line, again, it's flattering, it's great, but I need to win in order to make sure to be on that list.”
