Novak broke another record: No one has managed to do something like this since ATP rankings exit
Djokovic isn't stopping breaking records, and he's not done yet!
Novak Djokovic wrote history, he won his 10th title at the Australian Open by defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas (3-0) and thus also his 22nd Grand Slam title. This feat also brought him back to the top spot on the ATP list, which is an achievement in itself.
However, that's not all, since Novak wrote another new page in history by returning as world No. 1. Considering that before the tournament, Djokovic was ranked 5th, by progressing to the first place, he made the biggest jump on the list in history, if you count tennis players who reached the very top.
Djokovic has not been at the top of the ATP list since June, when unsportsmanlike things befell him and he had to fight against everyone, yet justice is sometimes slow, but in the end always attainable, so the Serbian ace returned to the top, right where he belongs.
Namely, 35-year-old Novak made history of the ATP rankings, which has existed since 1973. However, that is not the end of his records, because if Novak stays in there for another four weeks he will break the record of Steffi Graf, who spent 377 weeks as No. 1, while Djokovic's number of weeks is currently 373.
