Novak Djokovic won the 40th ATP Masters 1000 of his career in Paris-Bercy. Impressive numbers for the Serbian champion who with this success has almost mortgaged first place in the ATP ranking at the end of this season. Just one victory at the ATP Finals will be enough for him to be sure of finishing ahead of Carlos Alcaraz.

The supremacy of the 24-time slam champion in recent years is absolutely clear. Despite Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev succeeding each other for short periods, Nole has always climbed his way back to the top of the world rankings.

Roger Federer's retirement, which occurred in September 2022, and the difficulties highlighted by Rafael Nadal due to an injury, make the distance between the Serbian champion and all the other tennis players who currently appear among the best 50 of the world even more evident.

ranking. One fact bears witness to this. The entire top 50 have won 41 ATP Masters 1000 titles. Djokovic alone has won 40.

One of the most special victories for Djokovic

At the press conference after the Paris Rolex Masters final, Djokovic spoke of his joy at his umpteenth achievement: "The most difficult moment of the week? Well, there were a few to be honest!

It was a very busy week, I had a stomach problem and it took a lot of energy out of me but fortunately I managed to find extra energy, especially in the three matches between Thursday and Saturday. Considering what happened this week it is one of the most special victories in the Masters 1000 category.

Obviously as a good student I look at the numbers but at the same time I want to think about my next challenge. As long as I play tennis this will be my mentality and things won't change. Everything that happened this week is fantastic but it's already behind me.

I'm proud of all this but that's how it works for me. I still want to win, the 1000m and the Slams are the most important tournaments in our sport and I'm happy. I don't know what stage of my career I'm at, but I think every win I win is worth double these days."
