A native of Belgrade, he equaled the record of the legendary American Pete Sampras at the end of last week and will finish the year for the sixth time as the world number one. Sampras did it without interruption between 1993 and 1998, Djokovic will close the season on the throne for the sixth time in ten years. He will take over the traditional trophy next week in London at the Champions Tournament.

Djokovic is now the world’s oldest number one at 33 years and seven months. This year, he could only be threatened by the Spaniard Rafael Nadal if he accepted a wild card for a small tournament in Sofia. As expected, however, he preferred to rest and prepare for London’s peak season.
