Novak Djokovic could soon destroy one of his crazy records. The Serbian champion has now managed to rewrite the historical concepts relating to the world of tennis. Years pass and the Serbian never seems to decline, he is over 36 years old and continues to win, defeating the young competition.

With Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner and the Russian Daniil Medvedev they were thought to be in decline, but Nole managed to dominate this season too. 3 Slams won and a final lost only at the end at Wimbledon, almost surprisingly against the Spanish Alcaraz.

Nole, despite his advancing age, continues to achieve records. Years pass and those who consider the talent from Belgrade as the true GOAT of this sport increase. On the other hand, we are talking about a 36-year-old tennis player who appears to be ten years younger, and does not suffer long-distance challenges with athletes 15 years younger.

Now, Djokovic could break another record, or rather he could beat himself. Novak has so many records that perhaps the Serbian is now the only one still able to beat them, especially when we talk about longevity.

the Serb is the tennis player who holds the record as the oldest no.1 in the Race at the end of the year, a record he achieved in 2021. On that occasion Novak was 34 years and seven months old, but it seems obvious that Djokovic can now surpass himself.

Djokovic is 36 and a half years old and he leads the Race with a 500 point advantage over Carlos Alcaraz. Important numbers and now the two will compete for supremacy in the Race between Paris-Bercy and ATP Finals. On the other hand, Alcaraz does not arrive in the best conditions at this end of the season, he withdrew from the Basel tournament due to physical problems and is now called upon to react in the French 1000.

Nole, it must be said, played much less than the Spaniard or in any case managed himself by deciding, for example, to skip the Asian tour and beyond. His goal is to manage himself over time, the priority is the Slams and the Olympics next year.

It's not a priority but this could represent yet another record in an extraordinary career. And now there is little left to understand if he will succeed in yet another milestone.
