Following his opening match win over Casper Ruud yesterday at the ATP Finals in Turin, Novak Djokovic collected his record-breaking seventh year-end No. 1 trophy.
The Serb, who just fell three sets short of a Calendar Grand Slam, won three Slams and also recently won Paris to clinch the top ranking.
“Feels amazing, and obviously feels even better when you win a match and you get your hands on that trophy that I have been blessed to lift for seven times now in my career, one more than Pete Sampras, who was my childhood hero. He was the one that got me going with tennis,” Djokovic said Monday.
