Djokovic Sets New All
Broken record for the longest run at No. 1 in FedEx ATP Rankings.
Setting or breaking a new record is regarded as the highest measure of success in any sporting activity. Serbian international Novak Djokovic is no stranger to setting new records. The tennis player held the longest run at No. 1 in the history of FedEx ATP Rankings.
Novak first acquired the No. 1 ranking on 4 July 2011 and has, since then, won several titles under his name. The lists of his accomplishments include but are not limited to the following ninth Australian Open trophy and 18th Grand Slam title in the ATP.
Last season the 33-year-old completed the year as the No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings for a record run of six times.
"It is fascinating to be among the legends of the sport,” said Djokovic. "To actualize my dream is proof that anything is achievable.”
Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman, was among the doctrines that sent their congratulatory message to the tennis player. "Novak's achievements in tennis are extraordinary. Reaching No. 1 is something every player dreams of, and very few accomplish it. To have held the top spot for a record-breaking duration is testament to the heights of excellence that Djokovic has redefined in our sport," Andrea Gaudenzi said.
