So Novak wins when he is number 1. Must be reverse for Nadal.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)).
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).So Novak wins when he is number 1. Must be reverse for Nadal.
Great pics! Interesting that both countries competed in WC and DC finals. Chances are most French would have rather won the WC?Djoker congratulated the Croats for this year's victory in Davis Cup.
A far greater and better match than AO 2012, IMO. Their best and highest quality (from both) match since 2011 Miami. Without a doubt the match of 2018!Link to article from TENNIS.com: http://www.tennis.com/pro-game/2018/12/top-10-18-no-1-djokovic-outlasts-nadal-wimbledon-semis/78335/
Article's author Steve Tignor labeled for the best match in 2018 SF Wimbledon between Djoker and Rafa.
Wow, he is playing Madrid instead of MC. BTW, he can pick up a lot of points before Rome, with only 245 pts to defend out of 5250 pts.No1e's 2019 season schedule until 2019 Wimbledon:
As much as I like Nole, Ledecka should have topped this list. She has done something that was never done before.Ultron the third time won the award for the best sportsman in Europe! He also received the award in 2011 and 2015.
