With the success obtained in the final at the Australian Open 2023, Novak Djokovic got the 22nd Grand Slam of his incredible career. With the matches with Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings, the Roland Garros, scheduled between May and June, can represent a greedy opportunity to overtake the standings.
Nole, with the success obtained at the Rod Laver Arena, against Stefanos Tsitsipas, hoisted himself to 10 titles obtained in Melbourne, an absolute record, which at least as regards the Grand Slams was only achieved by Nadal, at Roland Garros (14).
But if we also take into consideration the 1000 and 500 tournaments, the list expands and sees the presence, in addition to the two aforementioned, of Roger Federer, who once again bears witness to the authentic, almost unchallenged dominance of the Big Three in the last twenty years.
In the ranking of the most dominated tournaments we see the first three positions occupied by the Spanish champion Rafael Nadal, and they are all red. If in first place we see the Parisian Slam, in second (12) and third (11) there are the tournaments of Barcelona and Montecarlo.
In fourth and fifth place Halle (10) and Basel (10) won by the Swiss legend. Always at 10, Nadal returns to the standings with the Italian Open.

Djokovic could play at the US Open 2023
In the past few hours, another great news has also arrived for the Serbian champion, he will be able to participate in the US Open and therefore potentially contribute to another incredible feat that he has already stroked in 2021, the Calendar Grand Slam, which consists in the victory of all 4 Majors in the same calendar year.
On that occasion, his triumphal march was interrupted right in the last act, in the final at Flushing Meadows, where Daniil Medvedev barred the doors to the title, winning his first Grand Slam title. The Belgrader has won 5 of the last 7 Grand Slams he has taken part in.
Impressive numbers that automatically make Djokovic the tennis player most likely to win the remaining Grand Slams of the season. The 35-year-old, after his triumphant trip to Australia, will leave the 500 in Dubai at the end of February.
