There is only one Novak Djokovic.
The 36-year-old Serbian collected the seventh ATP finals title of his career when he beat Jannik Sinner in a one-sided final with 6-3 and 6-3.
“This is undoubtedly one of the best seasons of my life. Jannik played excellent tennis in the run-up to the final and this victory is the icing on the cake for me. I am very proud of the performances I was able to deliver against him and Carlos Alcaraz – they are among the very best players in the world and I had to work hard to beat them,” said Djokovic.
The world’s leading player is particularly pleased with the fact that he was able to hang up the boards against Sinner – a player against whom he was defeated in the group stage.
“I had to win the game; I couldn’t just sit back and wait for him to make a mistake. I have now made some tactical changes; yes-no, it was indeed a very special week.”
According to Sinner, Djokovic doesn’t leave you alone on the tennis court.
“Novak played very well, but I was not at my sharpest at times. As for my physical game, I dropped the ball a few times. And when you do that against the best player in the world, he will definitely punish you on the scoreboard,” said the young Italian.
In addition to his success on the court, Djokovic is also a scoring master.
Today, the Serbian celebrates his 400th week as the world’s leading tennis player in the official ATP rankings.
