The prospect of Novak Djokovic exceeding the total amount of titles held by Roger Federer and Jimmy Connors was discussed by Goran Ivanisevic. Although it’s unclear how long he’ll perform and how long he’ll last, given the situation he’s in right now, I’m confident he might attack or have an impact on those records as well.
The former World No. 1 was unsure of Djokovic‘s playing time but was confident in his abilities to maintain his fitness. “He has always been physically fit, it has never been an issue, and if he keeps it up, I am certain that he could stay at or near the top for another three years and compete for all the titles,” Ivanisevic continued.
The organization has set aside a sizable prize fund for the ATP Finals in Turin, and whomever takes home the title could become the tennis player capable of earning the “richest” triumph in tennis history.
The winner in Turin will get an amazing 4.74 billion dollars, a sum never before achieved by a tennis player in the sport’s history, assuming only victories and no losses—even in the Round Robin. Every win, even in the group stage, will be worth a significant amount of money, and the previous tournament record belongs to Ashleigh Barty’s victory in the Shenzhen Masters ($4.4 billion). If there is a loss, the prize pool will drop to $4.357 million.
As a result, everything is dependent on how many players win the competition. However, the winner of the prestigious Masters 1000 at the end of the year will undoubtedly walk away with a sizable haul.
Djokovic is in fantastic condition.
Novak Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam champion and former World No. 1, has put an end to any speculation that he may soon follow Roger Federer into the sunset.
“To be honest, I don’t feel old enough for a tennis career or for it to end. I still have the impression that my body is doing me a favor and paying attention to what I need. I believe that’s the key whether you’re 35 or older “Djokovic stated.
“You know, I’m changing my schedule a lot more. I don’t play as frequently as I did a few years ago. I want to compete at my best at the world’s greatest tournaments, including the Grand Slams and some of the major ATP events, while representing my nation “said he.
“I get the most drive and inspiration to play the best tennis from that. I’m really hoping to continue on. Right now, the end of my professional career is not in sight. I’m afraid I can’t tell you how many years. I’m not sure, “Added he.
