‘24th Major – Reclaiming World No. 1’ → ‘GOAT’ Djokovic

Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia), who virtually confirmed his status as ‘GOAT’ by winning his 24th major championship, returned to the top of the men’s professional tennis world rankings as scheduled.

On the 11th (Korean time), Djokovic rose to No. 1 in the world rankings for the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour singles. He rose from second place before the start of the US Open to the top again.먹튀검증

This is the first place regained in about two months after being pushed to second place at the end of June. In addition, Djokovic holds the all-time record in this category with 390 weeks as the world’s No. 1 player.

Also, this record is the longest among men and women. This is a whopping 80 weeks ahead of 2nd place Roger Federer’s 310 weeks. Also, her women’s best record is a big lead compared to Steffi Graf’s 377 weeks.

Previously, Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev (27, Russia) 3-0 (6-3 7-6 <7-5> 6-3) in the US Open men’s singles held on the 11th and lifted her championship trophy.

This is Djokovic’s 24th major championship. She widened the gap on second-place Rafael Nadal to two. Now the gap has widened to a point that Nadal cannot easily catch up with.

Nadal is already injured, making it difficult for him to challenge for the title except for the French Open. However, Djokovic can still challenge for the top spot the following year.

Also, the Australian Open, the earliest major tournament to be held the following year, is Djokovic’s main stage. Accordingly, Djokovic is expected to record at least 25 major championship wins.

On the other hand, Carlos Alcaras, who defeated Djokovic to win the last Wimbledon tennis tournament, lost to Medvedev in the semifinals and fell from first to second in the world rankings.
