Tennis phenom Novak Djokovic adds another feather in his glorious cap as he ends his 2023 campaign with his 71st big title win in Turin, beating Jannik Sinner in the ATP Finals.
Djokovic has now won his 7th ATP Finals beating Roger Federer’s record in a fitting end to what has been yet another remarkable year for the Serbian star.
The 36-year-old has won a whopping three Grand Slams in 2023. He claimed his 10th Australian Open in January after beating Stefanos Tsitsipas. He also won the French Open final in May beating Carlos Alcaraz, surpassing Rafael Nadal’s record of 22 men’s singles major title wins. The World No.1 also lifted his fourth US Open trophy beating Daniil Medvedev in September extending his Grand Slam record to 24.
The Serbian could have won it all and achieved his first-ever Calendar Slam in 2023, something only two men have achieved so far in the history of tennis. But rising star Carlos Alcaraz got his Roland Garros revenge and denied Djokovic this feat by defeating him in an intense five-setter at the Wimbledon final in July.
Djokovic has also increased his stay at World No. 1 for a record 400 weeks, defeating Steffi Graf’s 377.
Some Other Records Broken And Extended By Djokovic In 2023
With such an incredible showing on the court in 2023, Djokovic seems pumped to win the Golden Slam by winning all the four grand slams and getting his hands on a much-awaited first Olympic gold medal in the 2024 Paris Olympics. Only Steffi Graf has won a Golden Slam in tennis, and Djokovic will be eyeing one next year.
