Djokovic equals Federer’s record

March 2, 2021

Novak Djokovic matched Roger Federer’s all-time record for the most weeks as ATP world number one yesterday, holding the top spot for the 310th week.

Djokovic’s ninth Australian Open title last month ensured the 18-time Grand Slam champion will surpass Federer’s record next week. The Serb reclaimed the top ranking from Rafael Nadal in February 2020 and finished as year-end number one for the sixth time, tying the mark set by Pete Sampras.

This is Djokovic’s fifth different stint atop the rankings. He spent 122 consecutive weeks as number one between July 2014 and November 2016. That record is currently held by Federer (237).
