Novak Djokovic had an incredible 2023 winning three of a possible four majors and the leading betting sites make him the favourite to win the Australian Open and the US Open this year.

He has already clinched 24 Grand Slams throughout his illustrious career: ten Australian Open titles, three French Opens, seven Wimbledon titles and four US Opens.

Bookies are offering 17.00 on Djokovic winning all four Grand Slams in 2024, which would be a remarkable feat.

You can alternatively take odds of 5.50 on him winning three Grand Slams, 3.25 on him clinching two, 3.50 on him only winning a single Grand Slam and 3.50 on none.

We have explored his chances in each Grand Slam and delivered our verdict on the number of major titles he will end this year with.

Can Djokovic Win All Four Grand Slams?

Only two players have ever completed a Calendar Slam in men’s singles history: Don Budge and Rod Laver.

Budge pulled it off in 1938, and Australian superstar Laver followed suit by winning the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open in 1962.

Both achievements came prior to the Open era, but Laver then repeated the feat in 1969, cementing his status as one of the greatest players in history.

While he has never won a Calendar Slam, Djokovic has won four consecutive majors: Wimbledon and the US Open in 2015 and then the Australian Open and the French Open in 2016.

He has also come close to a Calendar Slam on four occasions. In 2011, Djokovic won three majors and reached the semi-finals of the French Open.

The Serbian superstar then won the same three majors and finished runner-up at the French Open in 2015. 

Finally, he won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon in 2021, before suffering a shock defeat to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final.

This year he came very close again to winning all four majors in the same year as Carlos Alcaraz was the only man to stop him in an epic Wimbledon final.

Can he finally secure the elusive Calendar Slam in 2024?

Djokovic deservedly heads Down Under as favourite to clinch a 11th Australian Open title.

He is the most dominant player in the tournament’s history, having won 93% of his matches on the hard courts at Melbourne Park.

He destroyed his rivals in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and he would probably have done so again in 2022 if he had not been deported due to his vaccine status.

The Serb was in imperious form at his favourite major this year as he only dropped just one set en route to more Australian Open glory.

He should make short work of his rivals at the tournament, so odds of 2.1 on him lifting the trophy look very appealing.

Verdict: Winner

This has been Djokovic’s weakest tournament over the years, as his game is not particularly well suited to clay surfaces.

He still boasts an impressive 87% win record at Roland-Garros, but he has only clinched the title three in 19 attempts. The first came in 2016 – his 12th attempt – when he beat Andy Murray in the final, completing a career Grand Slam.

However, there was always an asterisk against that triumph, as the dominant Nadal had to retire due to injury in the third round. There was no such asterisk in 2021, when he prevailed in an epic semi-final against Nadal before dispatching Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final.

However, Nadal gained revenge by beating Djokovic in the quarter-finals in 2022. 

The Serb found his form on clay in 2023 and was outstanding in his charge to his third French Open title, defeating Alcaraz in the semi-finals in four sets before brushing Casper Ruud aside in the final.

He is 3.25 with bet365  to win it this year, but the odds on Alcaraz look more attractive right now, who is considered favourite for the crown at Roland-Garros.

Verdict: Loses to a clay court specialist

Djokovic had not tasted defeat at Wimbledon since 2017 until he lost this year's final 3-2 to Alcaraz.

He won the tournament in 2018 and 2019, and it was cancelled due to the pandemic the following year.

It returned in 2021, when Djokovic defeated Matteo Berrettini in the final, and he defended his crown when he beat Nick Kyrgios in 2022

Prior to losing to Alcaraz in the final he was on a 36-match winning streak on the grass courts at SW19, and he looks well priced at 2.75 with bet365 to conquer Wimbledon again in 2024.

Verdict: Winner

It is interesting to note that Djokovic has only won four US Open titles during his career, when you consider how strong he is on hard courts.

He has finished runner-up on six occasions, and he has also crashed out at the semi-final stage three times. 

His vaccine status prevented him from competing in 2022 but he showed his class in this year's final when beating Medvedev 3-0.

Djokovic may run out of steam towards the end of this year, as he is now in his mid-30s. 

He is still favourite for the title at odds of 2.25 with bet365 given the quality of his victory in 2023.

But, injuries and fatigue may catch up with him by the end of 2024, so there will probably be more value elsewhere in the US Open winner’s market with betting apps.

Verdict: Runs out of steam

How Many Grand Slams Will Djokovic Win This Year?

Odds of 3.25 on Djokovic winning two Grand Slams this year look tempting, as he could come up short against a genuine clay court specialist at Roland-Garros.

He is the heavy favourite for the Australian Open and the US Open, and only behind Alcaraz in the minds of the bookies for Wimbledon and the French Open. 

But, things rarely go to script in elite sport, so there could be the odd mishap along the way.
