Novak Djokovic is the man who can break all records and go further, like a superhero. Like the rubber man Monkey D. Luffy (protagonist of the One Piece manga, by Eichiro Oda-ed.), who awakens the Gear Fifth, having freedom to do what he wants.
Even Djokovic, due to his physical abilities and elasticity, has often been called the rubber man: a comparison with the protagonist of One Piece seems to be truly perfect and fitting. And also at the ATP Finals in Turin, where in a few hours he will play the final against Jannik Sinner, Nole is writing tennis history.
A story that is now marked to the rhythm of each of his victories. During the 202 3edition of the Masters tournament, again at the PalaAlpitour in Turin, the Serbian champion broke several longevity records and, at 36 years old, he doesn't seem to want to stop.
Djokovic like Monkey D. Luffy: The man can do what he wants!
With the semi-final reached during this edition, rather clearly surpassing the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz in straight sets, Djokovic placed himself in second place in a special ranking: only Roger Federer has reached the final more times at the ATP Finals (10), with the 36 year old Serbian who equaled Ivan Lendl's result (9).
Nole also became the first tennis player to reach multiple finals of this competition after turning 35, since the event's inauguration in 1970. Now the goal is to take the 7th trophy, overtaking the Swiss champion, who is now stuck at 6 triumphs.
The final of the tournament against Jannik Sinner will represent an opportunity for revenge for Djokovic. After the defeat in the round robin, Nole will have all the determination to win the last match of the 2023 ATP season.
9 - With his SF win over Carlos Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic is in his ninth final at the ATP Finals, moving level with Ivan Lendl for the second-most at the event since 1970. Only Roger Federer (10) has now reached more. Comfy.#NittoATPFinals | @DjokerNole @atptour @ATPMediaInfo pic.twitter.com/i5Y4waDHW3 — OptaAce (@OptaAce) November 18, 2023
