Djokovic News

As No. 1 in the current 4th period (since November 5, 2018) played only one tournament. Sooner or later he will achieve the ATP title as No. 1 in the current period.

Of the 72 ATP titles that Djoker has won so far, 30 titles won as World No. 1 (4 titles in 1st period (July 4, 2011 - July 8, 2012); 5 titles in 2nd period (November 5, 2012 - October 6, 2013) and 21 titles in 3rd period (July 7, 2014 - November 6, 2016)).
So Novak wins when he is number 1. Must be reverse for Nadal.

Other interesting facts are that Djoker 8 of 14 GS titles won as the World No. 1 (9 times No1e was 1st seed (in Wimbledon 2014 Djoker was 1st seed and 2nd player of the ATP rankings), when wins GS tournament) and each time won the title at Australian Open, when Djoker was in No. 1 position (2012-13, 2015-16).

I wish I could see again Serbinator with Norman Brookes Challenge Cup. Perhaps in next year :)

Djokovic won the Best European Athlete Title for 2018, beating footballer Luka Modric and F1 driver Louis Hamilton. He accrued 145 points in the 61st edition of the survey, with 23 press agencies on the continent.

Looking forward to watching him tomorrow, it's been a while. He is in the semifinal and will play either Thiem or Khachanov at the start of this year's Abu Dhabi exho.

As much as I like Nole, Ledecka should have topped this list. She has done something that was never done before.
But yeah, ajmo Nole!

With the start of another season, we have Novak Djokovic win another title. It may be an exhibition, but it certainly puts any stresses we had about the off season to bed.

Nole beat Khachanov (who should be improving by the day) in straights after their last encounter ended with the reverse being true.

After a 6-4 6-2 win over the Russian, Djokovic was tested against Anderson, but held his own. Djokovic's form in 2018 was not a fluke, and it looks to be continuing.

Here's to a 2019 full of exciting tennis, a healthy Djokovic, and plenty more wins for our favorite!

15emo!
 
Djokovic will play Dzumhur at the start of Doha, on New Year's Eve.

If successful, he will face Fucsovics or Copil in the second round. Basilashvili, Rublev, Seppi and Ramos-Vinolas are the potential quarterfinal opponents, while Khachanov and Wawrinka, who will play each other in the first round, are the most likely rivals in the semifinal. The highest seeded players in the other half of the draw are Thiem, Cecchinato, Goffin and Verdasco.
