The Serb has by no means forgotten his troubled 2022

Champion. For the sixth time. At the ATP Finals in Turin, Italy, Novak Djokovic puts another dent in his extraordinary career by winning the circuit’s final act seven years after the last time. The Belgrade champion thus equals another legend like Roger Federer in the roll of honor at the event, and he does so at the ‘ripe’ age of 35. Simply the oldest tennis player ever to win the Finals.

Immediately after his surgical victory over Casper Ruud, the former world tennis number one revealed his feelings, rewinding the tape of an otherwise contradictory year.

“Having waited seven years to get this victory again makes it even sweeter. I have said a thousand times how unusual this season has been.Everyone who follows and knows tennis knows this, so this is a great satisfaction for me,” Nole began.

“Today I tried to be very aggressive, and it worked great. The sixth title in these Finals I’ve wanted for a long time, and I’m very happy that I was able to close with an ace-it means I closed in style. Now I’m looking forward to two weeks of vacation. I’ve been in turmoil every week of the year, either to play or to know if I would be able to play,” he concluded.
