2005 - The youngest player on the year-end top-100 list after 11 ATP wins from 22 matches. Novak qualified for the main draw in Melbourne for Grand Slam debut and he scored the first win on the biggest stage at Roland Garros, beating Robby Ginepri in straight sets. At Wimbledon, the youngster came from two sets to love down against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez to reach the third round and crack the top-100 for the first time, winning two matches at the US Open as well. Played only two tournaments after New York but it was enough to finish in the top-80 for the first time in a career

2006 - The first big year on the Tour, winning 40 matches for the place in the top-20 (the youngest player in the group) and lifting first ATP titles in Amersfoort and Metz. Djokovic had 11 wins before Roland Garros but he was on a roll in the rest of the year, advancing into the first Grand Slam quarter-final in Paris. Novak won the title in Amersfoort and retired against Stan Wawrinka in Umag in another title match in the following week. The second title came in Metz in October, preparing everything for an even more serious run in the years to come
