Djokovic, 34, set a brand new report for the 7th 12 months in a row

Kathmandu: Tennis star Novak Djokovic set a new record by ending the year with a top seven times. Djokovic is set to finish the year with the top seed after defeating Hubert Harkaz in the semifinals of the Paris Masters Open.

Djokovic, 34, is in the top spot for the seventh year. Earlier, the record was held by Pitt Sampras of USA. Sampras held the record for the top six consecutive years from 1993 to 1998. He defeated Daniel Medvedev in the final of the Paris Masters Open to win the title.

Earlier, Djokovic was in the top spot at the end of 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2020. After the victory, Djokovic described the end of the year, with the title and top rankings, as a truly glorious moment. With this success, he remembers the ideal tennis player Pitt Sampras when he was a child.

One day, he considers Sampras as his role model and says that he is ready to break the record of Sampras and take it as a great achievement. This is another record for Djokovic, who has won the Paris Masters for the sixth time. Earlier, the two met in the final of the US Open, but second-seeded Medvedev lost to Djokovic.

Djokovic, a Serbian citizen, has had a difficult childhood and life so far. Yugoslavia was so badly damaged in the civil war of the 1990’s that the same Yugoslavia was transformed into Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was not just a division, it was a civil war. There was tension. In the midst of this stress, many parents were troubled by the problem of how to raise their child. This was a natural concern for the parents of Novak Djokovic, born in 1987.

Having set a record by winning 20 Grand Slam titles, he holds the record for most nine-time Australian Open winners. However, his sensational performance started from the Australian Open. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal competed and won the Australian Open in 2008. By 2010, Nadal and Federer Djokovic were already known as players of the same caliber. All three influenced world tennis for a century.

He rose to the top of the ATP rankings for the first time in 2011, winning three of the four major titles and five master’s titles. Djokovic, who made a huge impact in the 2010s, ended the year three times as a second-seeded player. He also won the remaining Grand Slam French Open title in 2016. That year he was in the best rhythm of his career.

He led Serbia to the 2010 Davis Cup title and also the 2020 ATP Cup title. In the Olympic Games, the bronze medal he won in Beijing was the best performance.

Along with the recent success of these great players, the tragedy of childhood has also been discussed. With the division of Yugoslavia, the childhood of these players became extremely painful. His father was Sardan Djokovic and his mother was Djana Djokovic from Croatia. That is, Djokovic’s mother-in-law was in Croatia.

At the time he began learning tennis by building a clay court in Belgrade, Yugoslavia was plagued by persecution of indigenous peoples, military violence against civilians, and the tragic deaths of thousands.

An Indian sports expert believes that Djokovic did much to improve the image of the then infamous Yugoslavs. In 1999, while celebrating a birthday on the Djokovic tennis court, NATO launched an air strike demanding the release of Kosovo troops from Yugoslavia. What happened when someone was hit near the head while saying ‘Cake’ and ‘Happy Birthday’? It was scary to remember, those days for Djokovic.

One day, Na’ato was bombed. As soon as Djokovic’s mother heard this voice, she started running back and forth. In the process, his head hit the heater. Djokovic will never forget the incident of that day.

Belgrade had planned to run differently from the target of the Fight and Plane. One day, Djokovic’s trainer and Jelena Jenkiki, who loved him as much as her mother, planned to train at the site of the bombing the day before. It was decided that NATO forces would not bomb the same place for two days in a row. He cannot forget that he was trained in such a way.

According to Djokovic, schools and courts were closed after the bombings. Djokovic’s contemporary former top-seeded all-rounder Anna Ivanovic will never forget the day she drank and slept with her parents at night. Many say that in the 90’s, the third generation has developed the ability to face any challenge.

Even before the civil war of the 90’s, Yugoslavia was not without its players. This did not stop even after the Civil War. Following in the footsteps of the Soviet Union’s politics and economy, the Communist regime in Yugoslavia laid the groundwork for a vast game.

Yugoslavia, which managed to produce influential players even in the 80’s, had its physical infrastructure preserved in the 90’s. Despite the criticism of the Olympic Festival by various countries, the communist country Yugoslavia was participating in international competitions.

After the victory of the players of old Yugoslavia and the last Serbia, it is customary to greet by raising three fingers. This means saluting the Yugoslav army. But for Djokovic, it doesn’t matter. It is important for him to remember the explosion that happened to him at the age of 12. Many lives lost in the name of politics and borders are important. Because of this, even now, whether they are flood victims or earthquake victims, they are ready to help. He clearly means that everything else is secondary to human life.

In Djokovic’s language, resentment, jealousy, and violence do no good. Djokovic’s consciousness at the age of 12 stated that there was no need for any country in the world if love and violence between people started in the name of country. Even now he is adamant.

Djokovic’s two main rivals in 2010 are Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Some of his new competitors are ready. These players are likely to have an impact for a few more years. He will probably break some of the remaining tennis records in the meantime. Djokovic, who emerged as a star from the 1990’s, is now the role model for many on and off the court.
