Novak Djokovic’s records

World’s #1 tennis star Djokovic won three of the four Grand Slam tournaments — the Australian Open in January, French Open in June, and US Open in September — to raise his career total to a men’s-record 24 and was the runner-up at the other, Wimbledon.

He went 56-7 this season while leading the tour with seven titles, including at the ATP Finals last month.

In July, the 36-year-old regained the top ranking from Carlos Alcaraz, who edged him in a five-set final at the All-England Club.

The Spanish ace finished 2023 at No. 2 after the two men swapped No. 1 back and forth repeatedly this year.

Djokovic eclipsed his mark for the oldest player to top the ATP at the end of a season; he was 34 in 2021.

His eight-year-end No. 1s put him two ahead of previous record-holder Pete Sampras, who did it six times. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal finished at No. 1 five times, as did Jimmy Connors.
