Novak Djokovic (1st) defeated Hubert Hurkacz (10th) by 3-6, 6-0 and 7-6 (5), in two hours and 17 minutes, and agreed to the grand final of the Paris Bercy Masters 1000. In the definition, wait for the winner of the clash between Daniil Medvedev (2nd) and Alexander Zverev (4th). Similarly, the Serbian, with this, made sure to finish the year as number one in the world, once again.
There are already seven seasons in which Nole managed to close as the leader of the world ranking, being the most number of times and surpassing the line of Pete Sampras. But it is not only this, but is the oldest tennis player to do it: 34 years and seven months. Followed by Rafael Nadal, who in 2019 did so at the age of 33 and a half.
In the list of the longest-lived to close a year at the top, it is completed: Ivan Lendl in 1989 (29 and 9m), Andre Agassi in 1999 (29 and 8m), Andy Murray in 2016 (29 and 7m) and Roger Federer in 2009 (28 and 4m).
The Serbian does not stop breaking records and maintains a great closing of the season: in which he won three of the four major tournaments and still has, in addition to the final in France, the possible finishing touch in the ATP Finals in Turin.
