Novak Đoković, the 36-year-old tennis player from Serbia, has recently been crowned as the number one player in the world by winning the final ATP tournament of the season. This marks his 400th week at the top spot, an achievement that no other player in tennis history has accomplished.
During the final match, Đoković faced off against Jannik Sinner and emerged victorious, breaking a new record by winning his seventh title at this tournament. His journey to the top began in July 2011 when he first claimed the top spot on the ATP rankings. Since then, he has maintained his position for a total of 53 weeks. In 2023, he shared this position with Carlos Alcaraz for a short period of time before ultimately securing his place as the best player in the world once again.
This remarkable achievement serves as a testament to Đoković’s dedication and skill on the court. He attributes his success to his team and expresses gratitude for their contributions to his journey. As a result of this triumphant season, he will enter into next year’s competition as the reigning champion and positioned himself for another year atop the rankings for at least 409 weeks.
Moving forward, Novak Djokovic is determined to continue pushing boundaries and becoming only the third tennis player in history with more than 1,100 career wins in 2024. He needs just two more titles to reach this milestone and cement his place in tennis history as one of its greatest players.
