With the goal of setting yet another record, 24-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic will take the court in Turin for the ATP Final.
At the Australian Open this season, the Serbian tied Rafael Nadal's record of 22 major singles titles, but he then easily surpassed it with wins at Roland Garros and the US Open. In addition, he became the first player to win the ATP Masters 1000 twice, in Cincinnati and Paris, with his 39th and 40th titles.
Djokovic will break a tie with Roger Federer for the most victories at the prestigious year-end tournament if he wins in Turin once more this year.
The 24-time major champion knows exactly which records he's trying to break. He honors the past but keeps his attention on the here and now.
"I try to be a good student of the game and keep track with the numbers, but at the same time, I also want to be able to just direct my attention to the next challenge. As long as I'm an active player, I guess that's going to be the mentality I will nurture," Djokovic was quoted as saying by ATP.
