'I Should Not Speak Publicly': Djokovic Jokes About Jacket With Number 25 For Australian Open

by Sebastian Dahlman

Novak Djokovic made a lot of noise with his custom jackets at the Grand Slams, which show the number of Grand Slams he won so far in his career.

With another major coming up, the Serbian might or might not plan something similar for the Australian Open. No player has been as dominant as Djokovic at the Australian Open, so it's not impossible to see him win another trophy.

It would actually be a huge surprise if he didn't win another trophy, which is why many expect him to have a jacket ready for next year.

Djokovic wouldn't want to confirm nor deny the existence of a possible 25 Grand Slam jacket for the Australian Open, jokingly admitting that he was advised not to speak on that publicly. He called it a wonderful problem to have.

"I have no idea. I don't know what you're talking about. I've been instructed that I should not speak about anything publicly. No, those are the wonderful problems to have. If 25 comes right now in January, it would be amazing, whatever happens."

The jackets have been a talking point for much of this year, and they will remain so as long as Djokovic brings them up. He himself was pretty glad about the positive reactions to the previous jackets, even as much as people wanted to buy them. He expressed hope that Lacoste produced enough of them to fulfil the demand.

"I'm really glad there was a positive reaction from the fans and from people with 23 or 24 jackets. A lot of people wanted to have that jacket and hopefully Lacoste produced enough for everyone," he added.

For now, Djokovic is mostly focused on the present at the Paris Masters and all events after that. The ATP Finals are coming up, and after that, he'll also have the Davis Cup Finals.
