We now look at the few records in the game that the super Serb will be aiming in his coming years on tour.
ATP World Number 1 for Most Weeks
The current ATP singles rankings have been put on a freeze due to the coronavirus impact. The man at the top is Novak Djokovic, who regained this position after his great victory at the Australian Open this year. Novak has now been the world’s number 1 for 282 weeks. He only trails behind two players, Pete Sampras, with 286 weeks and Roger Federer with 310 weeks at the top of the rankings. It is one of the famous tennis records which Djokovic looks to achieve and improve. His current form and age leave in an ideal space to achieve the record.
Novak Djokovic has again been at his best since his 2018 comeback. He has won 5 Grand Slams since then. If the Serb continues to play with the same consistency, he can break this and many other famous tennis records. His passion for achieving history is another important strength for the Serbian star.
Tennis Golden Slam
In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Novak Djokovic won a bronze medal. He has since then been hungry to win Olympic gold. In the last Olympic Games, he exited in s the first round, which was a shock to many. Novak will very be hungry to win this convoluted prize in the now rescheduled 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo. It will make him achieve many famous tennis records like the Golden Slam and Super Slam in the game.
Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest hard court players in the game. He will be one of the favorites to achieve glory in Tokyo next year. It will give him many famous tennis records that very few players have achieved in the Open Era.
Winning the Golden Masters Twice
Novak Djokovic has so far won 34 Masters 1,000 titles in his career. He has won each of the 9 Masters tournaments at least once. It is one of the famous tennis records famously called as the Golden Masters. No other player has been able to perform this feat in tennis history. The Serb is on the cusp of achieving more records in the game.
Novak Djokovic has won all other Masters titles two times except the Cincinnati Open. One more win there would give him a double Golden Masters in the game. This will be among the greatest and most famous tennis records. It will also help the Serbian to enhance his status as one of the greatest ever players to pick up a racket. The current world’s number 1 is determined to achieve these great records. He is already one of the greatest tennis champions in history.
