Novak Djokovic will try to end his season with a new victory, yet another of an extraordinary season (and career). I'm here to write yet another record of the Serbian champion, who is playing in the Davis Cup finals with his team.

After overtaking Roger Federer as the most successful player at the ATP Finals just under a week ago, surpassing him on 7 titles won, Djokovic achieved another record at the Davis Cup Finals, beating Cameron Norrie in the quarter-finals.

With 44 victories, Nole surpassed his countryman Nenad Zimonjic and became the Serbian player with the most matches won in this competition, both in singles and doubles. A fact that recognizes the immense greatness of the 24-time Slam champion, who has always distinguished himself not only in singles, but also for his country.

Djokovic has won his last 20 singles matches in Davis. His last defeat dates back to September 2011 when he retired with Juan Martin Del Potro. An impressive figure that crowns the Serbian champion.

And Djokovic is yet looking for another win

Novak won the last 18 sets played, in which he was never forced into a tie break.

And tomorrow his next opponent will once again be Jannik Sinner, after last Sunday's challenge in the final of the year-end Master in Turin. Nole explained at the press conference, focusing on the match against the Italian: "It will be fantastic for the Italian and Serbian fans, but also for Malaga.

Lately we have been developing a good rivalry, I respect it a lot. And you could say that team tennis is being played life. I watched some of the singles and doubles that he won on Friday, it was awesome. He played at a really high level and I saw that he was very enthusiastic about playing for his country.

It was impressive how they managed to overturn the 0-1 deficit. I know what awaits me and that he is very confident. I'm not playing bad either, so I think it's going to be a good match."
