Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are considered to be the three strongest tennis players not only of this era but of all time. Over the years the three have challenged and chased each other, reaching and overcoming each other's recorr and making it almost impossible to choose who was the real GOAT among the three of them.
Over the years Novak Djokovic has achieved and surpassed both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in several records and has seriously questioned the GOAT situation. Last March the Serbian champion overtook Federer in the number of weeks at the top of the world ranking with the Swiss stopped at 310 and the Serbian who is still continuing his incredible records today.
After two months of absence from the Tour, Novak Djokovic made his come back to the ATP tournament in Paris-Bercy. The Serbian champion won 3 Grand Slam events this year, reaching 20 both Federer and Nadal, but lost the great opportunity to overcome them both in the Grand Slam number and in reaching the Grand Slam Calendar, losing the final against the Russian Daniil Medvedev.
The defeat of Flushing Meadows was a heavy blow for the Serbian who remained away even from the training fields for some time. Back this week in Bercy Nole has broken yet another extraordinary record. Thanks to the victory over the Hungarian tennis player Marton Fucsovics, Djokovic became the tennis player with the most victories while he was number 1 in the world rankings.
Djokovic has won 418 races from number 1 in the world and is destined to increase this figure while Roger Federer has instead stopped at 417. Given the 40 years and the physical problems that have been characterizing him for some time now, it seems difficult for Roger Federer to respond and recover this incredible record.
Djokovic and Federer have put behind legends of this sport such as Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl and finally Pete Sampras and a little further back the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, stopped only at 250 victories and very far from the other two members of the Big Three.
