Novak Djokovic, the Serbian, will end up 2020 as the world’s number one tennis player if Rafael Nadal does not take a wild card into the Sofia event next month. Additionally, this is the 6th time that he can achieve this goal. With this, the 17-times Grand Slam winner has equaled Pete Sampras record of finishing number one for six years.
Although this record is one people rarely talk about, however, it was still challenging to break. Yet, Djokovic has now broken his childhood idol’s record and now has his eyes on the Swiss legend’s record.
With his win against Borna Coric in the Vienna Open, the 33-year old will secure his position at number one. And will end this season at the top. This acts as a cherry on the cake for Djokovic, who is on the verge of breaking many other significant records. This record says how the Serbian can be dominant in the game for the last many years.
Novak ended 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018 has the world number one. And now, it is 2020. Moreover, Djokovic also confirmed his position at the top 3 tournaments in advance, thereby showing his class in recent years.
Many Records In Front Of The Eyes Of Novak Djokovic
Besides, if the Belgrade player can win the Vienna Open or the Masters Cup, he would also equal Federer’s another record of most titles. However, Novak has his eyes on remaining at the top for the most number of weeks. Additionally, it is also held by Roger Federer.
Federer has spent a total of 310 weeks at the top of the ATP rankings. And if Novak Djokovic can be at first till March 8, the Serbian would also be able to add another feather to his crown. At the age of just 33 years, Djokovic knows that he still has so many years left in his packet to become the GOAT of this beautiful game.
