World number one player Novak Djokovic achieved a new achievement at the age of 36 by defeating local player Sinner 6-3, 6-3 in a match that lasted one hour and 43 minutes.
In this way, Djokovic, who started the year with a record, also ended the year by making a new record. He won her record tenth title at the Australian Open in early 2023. After this, he broke Rafael Nadal's record by winning the French Open and winning his 23rd Grand Slam title. Moreover, Djokovic finished top of the year-end world rankings for the eighth time.
Djokovic had to face defeat from Carlos Alcaraz in the final of Wimbledon but after that he won the title in the US Open. He swept past young pretenders Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner on his way to triumph in Turin and is gunning for more glory in 2024, when Paris hosts the one major event where he has not won, the Olympics.
The Serb has now won seven ATP Finals titles, breaking his tie with Roger Federer. Earlier, the record of winning most titles in ATP Finals was jointly held by Djokovic and Federer. He continues to head towards his own century with 98 titles, a distinction achieved only by Jimmy Connors (109) and Federer (103) in the men’s game. On Monday Djokovic will enjoy a ridiculous 400th week at world No 1, now 90 weeks greater than Federer in second place.
Djokovic will have many more milestones ahead of him in 2024. He is just two trophies away from 100 career titles. With 1,086 victories, he is likely to become just the third man in history to pass 1,100 match wins (Jimmy Connors, Roger Federer). And he will look to add to his record 24 Grand Slams (including 10 Australian Opens) and 40 ATP Masters 1000 titles.
