Roger Federer’s record is broken by Novak Djokovic with his eighth ATP Finals victory.


On Sunday, Djokovic defeated Jannik Sinner in straight sets to win the ATP Finals and set a new record.

Tennis player Novak Djokovic won a record-breaking seventh ATP Finals championship after defeating Jannik Sinner in straight sets to cap off an incredible 2023 season. With six ATP Finals victories going into the competition, Djokovic and Roger Federer were equal for the most ever.

Since Sinner had defeated Djokovic in the group stage earlier in the week, he was the clear home favourite going into the Italian Open. In the opening set, Djokovic made a tremendous effort to recover, earning 20 of 22 games with his serve. Djokovic grabbed the championship after an hour and forty-three minutes with a 6-3, 6-3 victory.

At the conclusion of the year, Djokovic, 36, holds the top spot in the world rankings for a record-breaking eighth time. He is also the first player to hold the top spot for 400 weeks in a row. By taking home the Australian, French, and US Open titles, he set a record for the most Grand Slam victories in a single season.

Of the players from the 1960s and 1970s, only Margaret Court has won as many Grand Slam championships as Djokovic. In addition, Djokovic advanced to the Wimbledon title match in 2023, meaning that he made it to the finals of all four major tournaments this year, something he hasn’t done since 2015.

After the game, Djokovic remarked, “It’s very special.” “Without a doubt, one of the best seasons of my life.

“I have to play better because of the way they’ve been playing. I had to prevail in the matches rather than wait for them to give it to me, and I have done just that.”
