Novak Djokovic got super records in Australia

on

Novak Djokovic will compete in the next Australian Open 2023, which will start on January 16th in Melbourne, but even before that, the Serbian champion will be able to taste again the flavor of playing again in Oceania in the 250cc of Adelaide.

Nole Djokovic will hunt for the tenth seal in Melbourne to reach double figures in a single Major that only Rafael Nadal has managed at the Roland Garros (the Majorcan has triumphed in Paris as many as 14 times).

Despite this, the 35-year-old from Serbia can already boast many records in the first slam that takes place every year. Let’s start with the one most evident to all: with the 9 successes obtained in Melbourne (the first in 2007 against Tsonga) Djokovic is firmly in first place in this special classification having detached Roger Federer and Roy Emerson who lifted this trophy six times.

Among other things, managing to triumph at the Australian Open, the Serbian could catch Nadal again with 22 total slams and thus continue this fight until the last Slam.

Novak Djokovic and his crazy numbers at the Australian Open

Going into detail instead, Djokovic could extend his streak of consecutive victories in single matches of the tournament.

At the moment the reigning champion of the 2022 Finals is stuck at 29 games and hasn’t lost a match in Melbourne since 2018 when he had to surrender against the Korean Hyeon Chung in the fourth round. Speaking of streaks, he also boasts sixteen consecutive wins against top ten players, losing only once on 26 occasions.

Going instead to sift through the numbers Djokovic in Australian tournaments (therefore also considering the ATP Cup and the 250 in Adelaide) has scored 97 victories out of 107 games played (absolute record in Australia).

Djokovic has also defeated 27 times out of 32 top ten tennis players with a decidedly higher percentage (84.40%) than he has won in his career (213 to 102 which is 67.60%).

In general, Novak Djokovic, first in Adelaide and then at the Australian Open, could score the 92nd and 93rd titles of his immense tennis career. Also in this case there is an infinite duality with Rafael Nadal who has instead raised 92 titles in his career in singles and therefore currently one more than Djokovic.
