Novak Djokovic

novak-djokovic

Novak Djokovic took a racquet in his hands for the first time when he was four years old. It was summer, and one of the best tennis coaches, Jelena Gencic, was holding a training camp. Every day Novak came by and watched the trainings. Then, one day, Jelena invited him on the court. He accepted, and started playing tennis.

Novak Djokovic born 22 May 1987, often referred to by the hypocorism Nole, is a Serbian professional tennis player who is currently ranked world No. 2 in men's singles tennis by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). He is considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time. He is coached by former Slovak tennis player Marián Vajda. Djokovic holds the best match winning rate in Open Era, as of August 2016.

Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, the fourth most in history, and held the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings for a total of 223 weeks. In majors, Djokovic has won six Australian Open titles, three Wimbledon titles, two US Open titles and one French Open title. In 2016, he became the eighth player in history to achieve the Career Grand Slam; by winning the 2016 French Open, Djokovic became the third man to hold all four major titles at once, the first since Rod Laver in 1969, and the first ever to do so on three different surfaces.
