Men’s Tennis Record is Tied by Djokovic, and More Is Coming

The world’s top-ranked tennis player is once again Novak Djokovic. Nor does he intend to relinquish the top rank anytime soon. After defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, the Serbian player won his tenth Australian Open title. With this victory, he also shared the men’s record of 22 Grand Slam titles with Rafael Nadal of Spain. The French Open, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the Australian Open are the four annual Grand Slam tournaments.

 

Djokovic declared, “I still have lots of motivation,” following his win. See how far it gets me, please. I truly don’t want to go right now. “I feel great about my tennis,” he continued. I am aware that I can defeat anybody in a slam dunk when I’m in good physical and mental health. Djokovic was deported for not having received the COVID-19 vaccination, which prevented him from competing in the Australian Open last year. He had to battle with a leg issue this year. In addition, he had to answer inquiries over his father’s appearance in pictures with Russian supporters. Djokovic, who was crying after the win, claimed he was “emotionally collapsed.”

 

In tennis, Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer of Switzerland are collectively referred to as “the Big Three.” They have won 64 of the last 77 Grand Slams between 2003 and 2023. Only Roger Federer has won a Grand Slam after the age of 35 in the modern era of tennis. At the age of 36, Federer captured the final 20 Slams in 2018. In one of the greatest Wimbledon matches ever, Federer, then 37 years old, lost to Djokovic when he was just one point away from winning the tournament the following year. Federer is retired at the age of 41. Due to an injury, 36-year-old Rafael Nadal had to withdraw from this year’s Australian Open.
