Novak Djokovic has a shot at tennis history next month, when he attempts to complete a sweep of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments in Cincinnati.

Should the World No. 1 win the Western & Southern Open for the first time, he would become the first singles player to win all of the ATP World Tour's nine premier events.

The achievement would be so unprecedented, that we don't even have a name for it!

That's why the ATP World Tour and Western & Southern Open are giving tennis fans the opportunity to name the sweep. So here's your chance to put your stamp on a piece of tennis history.

The 26-year-old Djokovic has finished runner-up at Cincinnati on four occasions in 2008 (l. to Murray), 2009 (l. to Federer), 2011 (l. to Murray) and 2012 (l. to Federer).

Djokovic won his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title at the Sony Open Tennis in Miami in 2007. Here is a look at his ATP World Tour Masters 1000 finals record (14-10 overall).
