Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest players ever to grace the tennis courts, having won a combined total of 20 Grand Slam singles titles. In terms of Grand Slam trophies, the Serbian World No. 1 is tied with seasoned giants Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Djokovic has held the No. 1 ranking for a record 338 weeks and has concluded the year as the ATP year-end No. 1 on a joint-record six occasions. He has a staggering 85 ATP singles trophies to his credit. It includes a record nine Australian Open crowns and a joint-record 36 Masters titles. The Serbian is the only player in the Open Era to achieve a double career Grand Slam. Besides, he is the only player to complete the career Golden Masters on the modern ATP Tour, which he has done twice.
Regarded as an aggressive baseline player, Djokovic’s backhand is often recognised as one of the best in the modern game. He is particularly good at returning serves and his backhand down the line is one of his biggest strengths. His serve is another major weapon he has in his kitty, helping him to win several free points. Djokovic started out playing tennis when he was four years old. Marko and Djordje, his two younger brothers, have also played professional tennis.
He became the first man in the Open Era to complete the career Grand Slam twice by winning the 2021 French Open in splendid fashion. The year 2021 also proved to be quite special for the 34-year-old Serbian, who reached the final of all four Grand Slams. He ended up winning the first three but lost the US Open final to Daniil Medvedev. Besides, Djokovic has led the Serbian national team to their maiden Davis Cup title in 2010. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he won a bronze medal.
Novak Djokovic currently uses a Head PT113B pro stock racquet that is painted to resemble the Head Graphene 360 Speed Pro. The Serb uses Babolat vs Natural Gut 17 in the mains and ALU Power 16L in the crosses to string his racquet.
