Novak Đoković has just won the title at the final ATP tournament of the season and claimed the top spot in the updated ATP ranking, marking his 400th week at number one. This achievement makes him the only tennis player to have held the top spot for such an extended period, surpassing Steffi Graf’s record of 377 weeks earlier in 2023. His closest competitor, Roger Federer, spent a mere 310 weeks in first place, making history in the tennis world.
During the final ATP tournament, Đoković played against Jannik Sinner and secured a victory, setting a new record by winning the tournament for the seventh time in his career. He first topped the ATP rankings on July 4, 2011 and maintained this position for 53 weeks before sharing it with Carlos Alcaraz later in 2023. Despite their shared status as world number one at different times throughout the year, Đoković ultimately emerged victorious and will end this season as the best player in the world.
This remarkable achievement is a crowning glory to his season and serves as an accomplishment that he describes as every tennis player’s dream. He attributes his success to his team and expresses gratitude for their contributions to his journey. As a result of his triumphant season, he will kick off next year as the best tennis player in the world and position himself for at least another year in the top spot.
Looking ahead, Đoković is poised to become only the third tennis player in history with more than 1,100 career wins in 2024. With just two more titles needed to reach this milestone mark, he will continue to chase after greatness on both personal and professional levels.
