The 2020 season has started a couple of months ago and Novak Djokovic has already struck a streak of 18 straight wins by showing up at Indian Wells as undefeated. The extraordinary start of the Serbian is enhanced by a balance of 7-0 against players in the ATP top 10.
At the 2020 ATP Cup, Djokovic helped Serbia win its first title by scoring six victories including wins over Medvedev in the semifinal and Nadal in the final. At the 2020 Australian Open, he defeated long time rival Roger Federer in straight sets en route to the final where he defeated three-time grand slam runner-up Dominic Thiem in five sets.
This is Djokovic's 8th win at the Australian Open, making him the first Open Era male player to win Grand Slam titles in three different decades. For his 17th Grand Slam win he received 2.5 Million Euro as prize money.
The World number 1 won the title at Dubai Tennis Championships fifth time, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final. On the International Women’s Day, Novak highlighted three women, in particular, who have been his greatest support.
“That would be my mother, but also my wife, and my tennis mother who is not with us anymore. Jelena Gencic was truly someone who dedicated so much time and effort into developing me as a tennis player. She put all the essential ingredients into me when I was very young” - Djokovic said.
“My wife, who is the mother of our two children, does a wonderful job being a dedicated mother, an incredibly passionate philanthropist, and the best wife that I can possibly have” - he added.
