Novak Djokovic, the Serbian champion, has so far been the clear leader of this opening phase of tennis 2023. The tennis player’s statistics are horrifying; “Nole” has won every match to this point, and no one can equal his remarkable rate of play.

Following a year-long absence from Australia due to Covid immunization requirements, Novak Djokovic made a triumphant return to Melbourne and won the Australian Open, earning his 10th Australian championship and 22nd Grand Slam victory.

And not just because Carlos Alcaraz, who had been hurt and had only recently made a full recovery, was passed by Djokovic when he returned to the top of the world after passing Rafael Nadal. Novak Djokovic achieved 377 weeks at the top of the ATP rankings last week, a milestone that highlights his unchallenged domination at the men’s level.

With the help of these figures, Nole has also caught up to tennis great Steffi Graf, and in a few days she will surpass her for supremacy at both the male and female levels. The Serbian champion has achieved feats that appear to be unmatched in tennis history, and these days many laud his achievements.

Incredible statistics, to put it mildly. Today, tennis player Dominic Thiem, who is battling to reclaim the top spot, was the subject of an intervention by journalist Jon Wertheim. Djokovic served as a benchmark for Wertheim, who noted that Nole‘s actions are nothing short of exceptional.

The journalist said: “Thiem’s troubles and his challenges demonstrate how challenging it is to regain the top spot; his injury was quite significant and the margins of victory are very little.” It just goes to show how amazing he must have been to stay at the top for more than seven years, Wertheim remarked. “In the meanwhile, we see Djokovic become the all-time leader in major rankings, both at the men’s and women’s levels.

On any court, Nole can defeat any opponent.

LeBron James, a basketball great, has the mindset of being the best player ever, and Novak Djokovic can identify with that. On the sidelines of the Dubai Tennis Championships, Djokovic told The National, “Yeah, I can identify to it because I believe that what worked for me and still works for me is that self-belief and confidence level.”

The Serb continued, “Of course, always tempered with respect for the opponent, respect for the game, appreciation for the moment, and appreciation for what you’re going through. But I know that when I’m ready, when I’m on the court, on any surface, against anyone, I’m better, I’m the best,” he said.

“I think that what works for me is that,” said Novak Djokovic.
