Novak Djokovic started on the right foot in Vienna, defeating by 7-6 (6) and 6-3 to Filip Krajinovic. He reached the round of 16 of the ATP 500 and if he defeats Borna Coric he will end 2020 as No. 1 in the world.
If successful, the Serbian will equal the record of Pete sampras, his idol: finishing in six seasons as the best player on the planet. In addition, Djokovic will approach another record, one of the most important for him: surpassing the 310 weeks as No. 1 that, for now, Roger Federer has. With a win against Coric, Djokovic would exceed 300.
