Three grand slams and another ATP finals victory, 2023 was yet another successful year for Novak Djokovic who is showing no signs of slowing down as he enters his 22nd year as a professional.

The Serbian turns 37 in May which will be during his 21st full season on the ATP, and has achieved almost everything in tennis with the exception of an Olympic gold. With Paris hosting the Games next July-August, a city where he has won three French Open titles and seven Paris Masters, it will likely be his last chance to tick that off his career achievements.

On Monday, Djokovic won a record-breaking seventh ATP Finals title with a straight-set victory over home favourite Jannik Sinner. Djokovic entered the match tied with Roger Federer on six titles at the season-ending tournament for the year’s top eight players. But Djokovic was in imperious form and won 14 straight points from the end of the first set to the third game of the second to leave him firmly in control and subdue the Turin crowd.

He started 2023 with a record-extending 10th Australian Open title and went on to claim his 23rd Grand Slam singles trophy at the French Open, breaking Rafael Nadal’s mark. Djokovic, who lost the Wimbledon final to Carlos Alcaraz, also won the US Open.

“One of the best seasons I’ve had in my life, no doubt,” Djokovic said. “To crown it with a win against a hometown hero in Jannik, who has played amazing tennis this week, is phenomenal.”

Djokovic had already secured the year-end No. 1 ranking for a record-extending eighth time by winning his opening match at the ATP Finals.

Djokovic became the first player to hold the No. 1 ranking for 400 weeks, with Roger Federer at 310 the only other man to eclipse the 300-week mark.

It was also only the second time in the last 15 years that a player has made the finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments and the ATP Finals. The only previous occasion was when Djokovic did it in 2015.
