Novak Djokovic, the current world No. 1 in the ATP rankings, continues to etch his name in history by adding more records to his illustrious career. This time, following his qualification for the ATP Finals 2023 in Turin, the Serbian superstar has equaled a remarkable record previously held solely by Roger Federer.
Previously, only Roger Federer had achieved the feat of reaching the finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments and the ATP Finals in the same season, but Djokovic has now joined him in this exclusive club. Federer accomplished this remarkable feat in both 2006 and 2007, winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon, US Open, and the Masters Tournament in each of those years. The only obstacle that prevented him from securing all five titles in those seasons was Rafael Nadal, who emerged victorious in the two Roland Garros finals.
In 2015, Djokovic had already achieved this extraordinary feat. During that year, he triumphed at the Australian Open (defeating Andy Murray), Wimbledon, US Open, and the ATP Finals (all against Roger Federer). The only missing piece was the French Open, which surprisingly went to Stan Wawrinka.
With his exceptional 2023 season, Djokovic has now matched Federer’s record. This year, he once again claimed the Australian Open title (against Stefanos Tsitsipas), conquered Roland Garros (against Casper Ruud), and emerged victorious at the US Open (against Daniil Medvedev). The only setback in his pursuit of the calendar Grand Slam came at Wimbledon, where he was defeated by Carlos Alcaraz in the final.
