Novak Djokovic: 'There Were Two Or Three More People That...'

‘There were two or three other people who…’

Novak Djokovic sees the door open to once again stretch one of the records that he already has in his possession and that seems, at least for the moment, an impossible mission for anyone who wants to dethrone him. The Serbian tennis player has the opportunity to leave Melbourne Park as the new number one in the world and thus be able to continue expanding his record of more weeks as leader of the ATP ranking.

Currently ‘Nole’ has spent a total of 373 weeks in the position of honor, 63 more than its main escort. The difference with respect to the rest is overwhelming, and it could be more so in a season in which he will defend few points in a year in which he aimed to return to being number one in the world.

His escort in this classification could not be other than the Swiss Roger Federer. The ‘express’ had been the only player who had broken the 300-week barrier leading the ATP ranking. The third and last place on the podium is occupied by the American Pete Sampras, who retired with 286 weeks as #1.

Further back come two other former tennis players such as the Americans Ivak Lendl (270) and Jimmy Connors (268). The other member of the Big-3, the Spanish Rafael Nadal, who has been in the privileged place for 209 weeks, only appears up to sixth place in the standings.

This is one of the great records that Novak Djokovic has in his possession and that, if everything goes as logic indicates, he will be able to continue stretching it and the 400 is just around the corner. How long do you think it will take for ‘Nole’e to regain his place as world number one?

Returning to Serbia was not enough for Nole

One year after his controversial deportation from Australia, Novak Djokovic is back in the country.

“Many people still have the wrong idea of ​​what happened. [There were] two or three other people who arrived in Australia 10 days before me with the exact same exemption that I had,» Djokovic said. «I was just following the rules.

My exemption was verified by an independent body and a panel of physicians. The first few months after I came back…I came back to Serbia…I have to say I went through some tough times, not just with the Australian media, but with the media all over the world,” Djokovic said. «It was a lot of pressure and not a great narrative in the media about me.»
