Novak Djokovic once again ended up as the main topic of numerous world media, including in the United States of America.
“Novosti” tells you in its entirety how CNN, which did not make a name for itself by reporting on Serbs, informed the American public about the new success of the best tennis player in the world:
“Novak Djokovic beats Janik Siner, wins seventh ATP final and crowns stunning year as world number one
On Sunday, Novak Djokovic won a record seventh title at the ‘ATP Finals’ (the official name of the competition, which is described here as the Final Masters) by defeating Janik Siner 6:3, 6:3 in Turin, Italy.
The victory capped a stunning year for Djokovic, as it followed up on the Grand Slam titles he won at the Australian, French and US Open.
The 36-year-old now begins a record 400th week at the top of the world rankings.
– Playing this evening with Siner in front of his home crowd, and the way I finished the tournament and the season, is really incredible, Djokovic told reporters, adding: – I am very proud of my performance.
Sinner, the world No. 4, had beaten Djokovic earlier in the tournament, but the Serbian star was convincingly better in Sunday’s final.
Djokovic (36) achieved the opening break of the match when Sinner sent one forehand out of the court, and then he continued to play with clinical precision and won the first set, dropping only two points on his own serve.
Djokovic’s level was relentless and impressive at the beginning of the second set as well: he took Siner’s serve without losing a point in the first game and narrowly missed another break when he hit the top of the net. It was already less important in relation to the entire match, although Sinner fought until the very end.
In the end, a double fault gave Djokovic victory in an hour and 43 minutes of play, which saw the Serbian overtake Roger Federer for a record seventh title at the final tournament of the season.
His dominance against Siner was built on his excellent serving performance: Novak hit 13 aces and won as many as 91% of points on his first serve.
Now, the 24-time Grand Slam champion can start turning his attention to lofty goals next year:
– They can win four Grand Slams and the Olympic gold, well, let’s see – Djokovic told reporters. – I always have the highest ambitions and goals, it won’t be any different in the next year, that’s for sure.
– The drive I have is still there, my body serves me well, listens to me well. I have a great team of people around me. The motivation, especially for the biggest tournaments in sports, is still there. It still inspires me to keep going, Novak said.
The Paris Olympics, which will follow the French Open and Wimbledon, make for a pretty busy summer next year, and Djokovic said he has no plans to retire while still beating the best young players in the game: Sinner, Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz and Denmark’s star of Holger Rune.
– As long as I am able to beat them on the big stage, I will continue, because why stop if you are still winning the biggest titles?, he points out. – The moment they start ‘dusting my butt’, then maybe I’ll think about taking a short break or maybe a permanent break from professional tennis.
In January, at the Australian Open, a tournament he has won 10 times, Djokovic will try to add to his all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles in men’s singles competition,” concludes CNN.
