Would be such a bonus to take masters record too. Two birds with one stone.
Well lets see how he plays once he gets there, I think he will feel pressure before the final, trying to get the record. In final he may relax and play more freely, even though that is for a record also.

Why is Medvedev even wanting this YE number 1? He won't be respected because Djokovic has 3-1 in slam finals while he is 1-1.

On top of that, even with YE number 1, he can't be the number 1. The race was over the day Nole said he will play Paris and Turin. Now, its just formality. Medvedev and everyone know it by now, which is why there is no talk about it.

I think Medvedev is also focused on defending his titles, he is the reigning defending champion in Paris and WTF, so of course he would want to hold onto them.
 
So with Djokovic getting 600 points at least at Paris, doesn't this mean he will hold no one at least until the end of the AO regardless of what happens tomorrow and at Turin? I am assuming that Medvedev does not win both and then additional tournaments?

If that is correct, I believe it means Djokovic will get to 360 weeks guaranteed as No. 1 in the world.

Great achievement. Way back in 2011 when I seriously started following him never once did I m
Imagine he will literally crush all the records.. Superb achievement..

No we want the icing on the cake ..Revenge for the USO final..How does he defeat Medevedev?? Med will play on Novaks patience by engaging in long drawn out rallies..Will Novak take the bait by recklessly coming on the net ?? I think he should bombard Med with variety..

Novak has to be patient and be ready for marathon rallies if he wants to win tomorrow. You give pace on your shots to Med, he beats you 10/10 times on this surface. Peak Pushovic is needed tomorrow, make him generate his own pace

I think he is guaranteed number one till the start of ATP cup, assuming he don't win anything till then

We all know the obvious records our guy is chasing now, but here is one he already accomplished in his first match since mid September.

With his victory over Fucsovics, Djokovic has registered a record breaking 418th win as world number 1, surpassing Federer's 417.

Very interesting stats.

So it means Federer was more busy as No.1:
(after 2021 Paris SF)
Federer 417 wins / 310 weeks = 1.35 wins / week
Djokovic
420 wins / 346 weeks = 1.21 wins / week
 
I messed up.

The AO in 2022 ends on Jan, 24th.

I believe by getting to the finals, Djokovic is guaranteed of holding No. 1 until the USO end. I do expect him to play. Australia is opening up right now and the AO is 2 1/2 months form now.

Considering the 2017 was Nole's worst year with injury and retiring from Wimbledon semis till YE, imagine this.

2011 no. 1
2012 no. 1
2013 no. 2 decided during YEC
2014 no. 1
2015 more pts than no. 2+ 3
2016 no. 2 decided in last match
2017 injured
2018 no. 1
2019 no. 2 decided during YEC
2020 no. 1
2021 no. 1

Novak could have legitimately been 10 times YE no. 1

Again, he is playing a dangerous game of allowing mistakes by opponent,he let hurkacz dictate at the end of the match.. Now hurkacz is not at Med,Prime Zverev or Prime Thiem level so he got bundled out.. But he needs to take the game by the scruff of the neck.. If you remember Thiem exactly preyed upon this strategy by Novak and made him pay..Thiem was redlining in those Year End Atp finals against Novak..Why let the opponents in that headspace to begin with??
