Novak Djokovic King of the Australian Open
Novak Djokovic won his 22nd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open less than a week ago, catching up with Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings.
The 5th in the last 7 participations in the most important tennis tournaments testifies to the absolute dominance acquired by the Serbian tennis player in recent years, probably facilitated by the withdrawal of Roger Federer and a generation, that of the youngest, that is still fighting for standing out. .
The number one in the world, thanks also to the physical problems that the Asturian has suffered in recent months, will be able to increase his numbers, also maintaining another great objective, that of the Grand Slam Calendar, which he only caressed in 2021.
A story, that of the Big Three, which in the last twenty years has taken on the contours of a true hegemony. 44 Majors won by the trio from 2003 to today make them the most successful tennis players in the history of the sport. More detached from them other legends like Pete Sampras, Roy Emerson, Bjorn Borg, Rod Laver.
