[Novak Djokovic’s recent win at the ATP Finals secured his position as the year-end world number one for a record eighth time and marked 400 total weeks at the top of the rankings. This historic achievement puts Djokovic in a league of his own, with more year-end number one rankings than any other male player. The Serbian finished at the top of the rankings in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2018, 2020, 2021, and now in 2022. This matches the record set by Steffi Graf on the WTA Tour. His closest competitor on the ATP Tour, Pete Sampras, has six year-end number one rankings, all in successive years from 1993 to 1998, while Jimmy Connors and Roger Federer each have five.
Djokovic’s consistent dominance in the ATP rankings, as well as his numerous Grand Slam titles, solidify his position as one of the greatest players of all time. His ability to maintain the top spot in the rankings over the years sets him apart from his competitors and cements his legacy in the sport. With this latest achievement, Djokovic further solidifies his claim to the title of the greatest male tennis player of all time. His impressive track record and continued success on the court make him a force to be reckoned with in professional tennis.
