Serbian tennis player, humanitarian, and philanthropist Novak Djokovic Novak Djokovic has a net worth of 220 million US dollars as of 2022. In his life, Novak has accomplished a great deal, including winning 21 Grand Slam titles.
At the moment, Novak is ranked no. 6th overall in the ATP rankings. On the other hand, he spent a record-breaking 373 weeks in the no. 1 spot. In addition, he succeeded in achieving the end-of-year ranking of no. seven times throughout his lengthy career. He is also the former president of the ATP player council. He started playing tennis at a young age after emerging from Belgrade, Serbia. When he won the Australian Open, the year-end Slam title, in 2008, he won his first grand slam, which propelled him to worldwide fame. To establish himself in the big picture, he dismantled the Federer and Nadal show and later joined The Big Three.

This is a prized title that demonstrates these three players’ dominance of the sport since they first appeared. He made his debut in 2003, when he was only 20 years old, and by 2011, he had reached the top spot. 1 spot in the world rankings of the ATP. Novak Djokovic was born on May 22, 1987, making him 35 years old in 2022. He was raised in Belgrade, SR Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia, which is now Serbia. He is of Serbian descent and follows the Orthodox Christian faith.

Since then, he has worked irregularly to build a successful tennis career. Belgrade, Serbia, Monte Carlo, and Monaco are his current homes. Novak began his early education at a Belgrade-area school. However, he began to develop an interest in tennis at the very young age of four. At the Novi Sad training camp, he began his training. At the beginning of his tennis training at the Teniski Klub Partizan in Belgrade, his enthusiasm set him up to continue. He was only 6 at the time. Jelena Gencic, a Yugoslav pro tennis player, found Novak quickly.

Career


Novak Djokovic lost in singles in the 2001 Junior Davis Cup final to a player who was under 14 years old. He reached a combined junior world ranking of No. 1 in February 2004. 24 (a singles win/loss record of 40–11 and doubles win/loss record of 23–6) He joined the ATP World Tour in 2003 and played primarily in Futures and Challenger tournaments, winning three of them between 2003 and 2005. He competed in his first Grand Slam tournament, the 2005 Australian Open, but fell short in the first round to eventual champion Marat Safin. Djokovic defeated Guillermo Garca-López in the third round of Wimbledon and defeated Gael Monfils and Mario Ani in the third round of the US Open.

He finished in the top 40 of the world singles rankings in 2006. Djokovic won his first ATP title by defeating Nicolás Mass in the Dutch Open final in Amersfoort after three weeks at Wimbledon.

After winning his first Master Series title, Djokovic went back to Serbia to help his country get into the Davis Cup World Group. David Ferrer defeated him in the Monte Carlo Masters third round. At Estoril Open he crushed Richard Gasquet in the last. He lost to Rafael Nadal at the Internazionali d’Italia in Rome and Carlos Moyà at the Hamburg Masters. He defeated Marcos Baghdatis to advance to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Legacy


Djokovic is regarded by many observers, tennis players and coaches as the greatest men's tennis player of all time, primarily for his achievements and accolades across all top-level tournaments of the men's professional tour in addition to the men's singles ranking. Djokovic has won a record 67 Big Titles, including an all-time record of 23 Grand Slam titles while collecting the most weeks at No. 1, beating the top 5 and top 10 players the most, winning all Grand Slam and Masters events with the Year-end championship at least twice (which has never been done by another player even once) and having a winning head-to-head record against his biggest rivals in one of the strongest eras of tennis. Djokovic is credited with beating more higher-ranked players on the way to his Grand Slam tournament trophies than anyone among the Big Three. 

Former world's number 1 Daniil Medvedev labelled Djokovic the "greatest tennis player in history" after winning his first major title at the 2021 US Open against Djokovic. Pat Cash emphasized that Djokovic is one of two players who beat Rafael Nadal at the French Open, which he considers to be "the biggest challenge in tennis". Richard Krajicek and The Roar, sports opinion website, said that Djokovic should be considered for the greatest player of all time because he is the only one among his greatest rivals who has won four Grand Slams in a row. Patrick Mouratoglou stated, "Novak is the most complete player of all times. That enables him to find the solution to most of the problems on court and this, on every surface. It explains why he is now in the best position to become the GOAT".

 

 

Playing style and equipment


Djokovic is an aggressive baseline player. His groundstrokes from both wings are consistent, deep, and penetrating. His backhand is widely regarded as the greatest two-handed backhand of all time, due to its effectiveness on both sides of the court and its accuracy. His best shot is his backhand down the line, with great pace and precision. He excels at returning serve in particular, and regularly ranks among the tour leaders in return points, return games, and break points won. His forehand is deemed to be underrated, yet one of the best, due to its versatility. After great technical difficulties during the 2009 season (coinciding with his switch to the Head racket series), his serve is one of his major weapons again, winning him many free points; his first serve is typically hit flat, while he prefers to slice and kick his second serves wide. He has also led the ATP Tour in their career "Under Pressure Rating" statistic, in part because of his prowess at winning deciding sets.
Djokovic has been described as one of the fittest and most complete athletes in sports history, with high agility, court coverage and mobility, which allows him to hit winners from seemingly indefensible positions. Because of this, coupled with flexibility and length, he rarely gets aced. Todd Martin, who coached Djokovic between 2009 and 2010,
