Novak Djokovic reached another great milestone in his career, crowning a season marked by broken records on the circuit.
With this, the number 1 tennis player in the world, he won this Sunday, in Turin, Italy, his seventh ATP Finals title by beating the Italian Jannik Sinner by 2 sets to 0 (6/3 and 6/3). The game demanded a lot from the Serb, who is now the tournament’s biggest winner.
In this way, Djoko was tied in the number of ATP Finals titles with the Swiss Roger Federer, one of the great names in the history of tennis. They were side by side with six.
This Sunday’s victory over Sinner, however, made the Serb absolute in the competition among the eight best placed in the world rankings. Namely, the Finals title was Novak Djokovic’s seventh of the season.
At 36 years old and leader of the ranking, he also established himself as the greatest Grand Slam champion in history among men with victories at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and US Open, thus reaching the same 24 titles as Australian Margaret Court. In 2023, the Serb just didn’t win Wimbledon.
It’s worth remembering that Djokovic and Sinner had already faced each other in the group stage of the Finals. On that occasion, the Italian won the match and surprised everyone with the best campaign of his career. He underwent mental training with the doctor of Formula 1’s elite drivers and traveled to Turin determined to compete in the decision.
