Djokovic on Track to Surpass Federer’s 2017 Dominance

Roger Federer’s Unforgettable 2017 Season

In 2017, Roger Federer showcased an extraordinary display of tennis prowess. The Swiss maestro left an indelible mark on the sport, concluding the season with an impressive record of 54 victories and only 5 defeats. Throughout the year, he triumphed at prestigious tournaments such as the Australian Open, Wimbledon, two Masters 1000 events (Miami and Indian Wells), and two ATP 500 tournaments (Basel and Halle). Notably, Federer achieved this remarkable feat while deliberately skipping the clay court season, demonstrating his exceptional efficiency and offensive style of play.

A Chance for Djokovic to Emulate Federer’s Success

Djokovic has the opportunity to replicate Federer’s achievements from his age 36 season. With 5 matches remaining in Turin and the potential to reach the QF/SF/F of the Davis Cup Finals, Djokovic could secure a record of 59–5 for the season. This would equal Federer’s remarkable feat of winning 7 titles in 12 events played. In 2017, Federer claimed 2 Majors, 3 Masters 1000 titles, and 2 ATP 500 titles, all while opting out of the clay court season.

Djokovic’s Impressive 2023 Season

This year, Novak Djokovic has been on a similar trajectory, amassing 51 victories and enduring only 5 defeats. The Serbian tennis star has already secured 6 titles, including the Australian Open, Roland‐Garros, US Open, 2 Masters 1000 events (Paris and Cincinnati), and 1 ATP 250 tournament (Adelaide). With such a remarkable track record, Djokovic has the potential to surpass Federer’s accomplishments.

Aiming for Greatness in Turin and Davis Cup

If Djokovic can deliver an impeccable performance in the group stage in Turin, he will surpass Federer’s record. Furthermore, as Djokovic is expected to compete in singles at the Davis Cup, he has another opportunity to outshine Roger Federer once again.
