Leer en español: Los récords que le faltan por romper a Novak Djokovic
Djokovic once again demonstrated his quality as a tennis player by triumphing at Wimbledon to win his 21st major trophy. distancing himself from his contemporaries in the discussion of the best in history.
Djokovic himself has admitted his passion for setting new records and taking the sport to ever greater heights. As he once said: “Throughout my career, I have always been honest enough to say that the history of our sport is too much of a motivation. It is an objective, yes, to show that I can break all the records with all the results that I can obtain professionally on the circuit.”
However, it is still missing some achievements. Today we want to highlight some of them.
Record: Number of Grand Slams Won
Although it seems that Djokovic has won all the major titles in recent years, he is still one title short of being the leader of this list. At the moment, Rafael Nadal has 22 titles and Djokovic 21. Considering that neither has announced his retirement, they could compete for this record for quite some time. The good thing is that whoever holds it at the end of his career will have an almost unbeatable record, considering that there is currently no other active tennis player besides these two who comes close to double digits in terms of Grand Slams.
Record of Games Won
With almost 20 years of career and so many successes, it is hard to believe that Djokovic is not the tennis player with the most wins in history. However, he is narrowly outclassed by the Swiss Roger Federer. While the Serb has 334 wins throughout his career, Federer has 369. However, you have to consider that this is a record that Djokovic has every chance of breaking, considering that Federer has disappeared from the world of tennis in recent years and He is almost approaching 40 years old.
To Be the Leader in Victories in ATP Finals
After the four annual Grand Slams, the ATP Finals is the most prestigious event in the world of professional tennis. At this time, the tennis player with the most wins in this event is Roger Federer, who has won it a grand total of six times (2003–04, 2006–07, 2010–11). On the other hand, Djokovic has a total of five wins in this event (2008, 2012–15).
Although he still has many things to do, it is indisputable that Djokovic is the best male player in the history of professional tennis. With winning records over Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, each new achievement is an opportunity to further cement his legacy. Without a doubt, his fans will be expecting to accompany him to break new records, but it will not be an easy task, in addition to discipline, it will require luck.
