Novak Djokovic to end the season as year end number one for an unmatched 7th season

Novak Djokovic creates history and rewrites history and in a season where he has added to his accolades and records he has achieved one of the ones he wanted the most, the year end number one.

It is a recognition of a phenomenal season in tennis, since 2004 it has been dominated by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and of course Novak Djokovic.

Between 1993 and 1998 it was held for six consecutive years by Novak’s idol Pete Sampras. Federer got close too Pete’s record as he ended 2009 as the world number one in 2009 but that was his last time as did Nadal in 2019.

Novak Djokovic hadn’t ended the season as world number one until 2011 meaning in this era of himself, Nadal, Federer and Murray who ended the season as number one in 2016 the Serb has rewritten tennis history in a decade.


An incredible record and this year and in 2015 he was world number one for the entirety of the season.

It is worth remembering that before July 2011 Novak Djokovic had never spent a week as the world number one:
