Novak Djokovic won 3 Slams and the Nitto ATP Finals in 2023, dominating an almost perfect season, made up of triumphs and glory, including the epic final lost against Carlitos Alcaraz at Wimbledon. But now Djokovic is trying these days to make history at the Davis Cup Finals.

With the victory of the Masters Tournament, Nole continued to break records as he surpassed the Swiss legend Roger Federer as the most successful player at the Finals (Nole reached 7 and Federer is stuck at 6). Djokovic became the record holder for number of Slams, surpassing the Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal and is also the tennis player with the most ATP Masters 1000 wins.

Nole is busy in Malaga trying to close the 2023 season on a high note. After triumphing in Paris-Bercy and winning the event in Italy reserved for the best eight in the world, Djokovic will try to complete the circle by leading Serbia to win the Davis Cup.

Srdjan Djokovic accuses his son's detractors

And considering everything Nole has done, Srdjan Djokovic is furious with those who still belittle his son. A topic of discussion among professionals and fans is that relating to the greatest tennis player in history.

The speaker was the father of the Belgrade champion, who accused his son's detractors. "For 15 years he has been the best in the world in all possible categories. Of course, this annoys them, they can't admit that he is the best in the world.

For example, Federer was the best for many years with 310 weeks at number 1. When Novak got him, they said Steffi Graf was 370. She passed that too, so they got someone from before the Open Era with 500+ weeks. Do you want it to be 500 weeks or more? Well, it will be,” he said.

Djokovic, despite some controveries with the fans on the stands of the Davis Cup Finlas ion Malaga, won his match in the challenge between Serbia and Great Britain. Tomorrow, the 24 time Slam champions will face Italy and the young Jannik Sinner.
