What seemed impossible a few years ago, Novak Djokovic is making it happen. The 34-year-old Serbian tennis player, current world number one, moves further and further away in the battle of the fight for the great titles, where he reached 62 after the championship that he sealed on Sunday in Paris-Bercy. “Nole” has already won five awards from his main pursuer, and he still has the opportunity to seal his great year with the trophy at the ATP Finals in Turin, another event that he counts in this category. Djokovic distributes his record with 20 Grand Slams titles, 37 Masters 1000 titles and 5 from the “Masters Tournament”. He only needs the Olympic gold, which was denied this year in Tokyo 2020 where he lost in the semifinals against the German Alexander Zverev. It already sounds complicated that the Serbian can opt for the Olympic medal in the next fair, which will be in Paris 2024. In both Masters 1000 and Grand Slams he is the tennis player who has won the most, in the “greats” tied with his companions of the Big -3 Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Just second place in the classification of the winners of the great titles appears Nadal with 57 titles. In his case he distributes them in 36 Masters 1000, 20 Grand Slams and an Olympic gold, he has not been able to win the ATP Finals. Roger Federer is third on the podium with 54 ‘Big Tittles’. The 20 Grand Slams, 28 Masters 1000s and six “Masters Tournaments” put him in a prime position. In his case, he also failed to win Olympic gold in singles.
Darren Cahill on Federer
While there has been no news of Roger Federer returning to training, Darren Cahill stressed that the Swiss is indeed back on the courts. The Aussie further said that several people involved in the 2022 Australian Open were confident of Federer’s presence at the event. “There’s so many great stories coming into the Australian Open,” Cahill said on Sportsday. “Roger (Federer) is apparently playing, I know he’s doing a lot of work on the court at the moment and we’re pretty sure he’s going to come down to play the Australian Open.” Simona Halep’s former coach lauded Federer’s resilience and declared that the Swiss is hungry to win a 21st Major title. “At 40 years of age, the fact that he’s even doing what he’s doing is quite remarkable,” Cahill added. “He’s trying to get 21 (major titles).” In a separate interview with SEN’s Dwayne’s World, Darren Cahill said both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal would be part of the draw at next year’s Australian Open. Cahill also expressed his desire to see Djokovic make the trip to Melbourne. “I hope he (Novak Djokovic) does (come to Melbourne), the Australian Open will be a better tournament if he comes down to defend his title and of course he’s got history on the line as well in trying to win his 21st Major,” Cahill said.
