The victory against Matteo Berrettini not only meant the passage to the semifinals in search of that golden Grand Slam but also pulverized a few more marks that transform Novak Djokovic, No. 1 in the world and owner of 20 Grand Slam, as the man of the “thousand marks” statistics.
On the one hand, the Balkan surpasses Andre Agassi and is already the third player in history with the most victories at the US Open. Only above are Roger Federer with 89 and Jimmy Connors with 98. Another? It equals the 224 victories of the aforementioned Federer against Top 10 players.
Even the Serbian is not exactly the one with the most victories in any of the four Major and that is why its regularity among all stands out. In Australia only Federer surpasses him, with 102 and at Roland Garros he appears as the escort of the Spanish Rafael Nadal, who has 105 with 13 titles. At Wimbledon the most victorious is Federer, with 105, and Connors continues with 84 and then there is the aforementioned case of the US Open.
He has 82 in Australia, 81 at Roland Garros, 79 at Wimbledon and 80 in New York. For this reason, the adaptation of Djokovic in all the big tournaments is what stands out the most in this new record reached in 2021.
