Djokovic returns for a second campaign with Team Europe following his debut at Chicago in 2018. Widely considered among the all-time greats of tennis, he won a seventh Wimbledon title in July for an overall tally of 21 majors in singles. He is one of three men to hold titles at all four Grand Slams at the same time (along with Rod Laver and Don Budge) and the only man to complete a non-calendar year Grand Slam in the Open era.
Djokovic began playing tennis at the age of 4 and idolized Pete Sampras in his youth. He has received many awards in his career including the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award in 2012 and the Comeback Player of the Year in 2018, as well as the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award in 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2019. The Novak Djokovic Foundation was established in 2007 with a goal to help children from disadvantaged communities gain access to preschool education. In 2020, he donated one million euro for the purchase of ventilators and medical equipment to support Serbian hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A five-time ATP Finals Champion, Djokovic holds the rankings record for most weeks at No.1 (373) and has finished the year ranked No.1 a record seven times. He has won a record 38 Masters 1000 titles and is the only player to win all 9 ATP Masters titles. In 2022 he became the fifth player in the Open era to capture 1000 ATP Tour singles wins. Of Novak’s 21 Grand Slam singles titles, a record nine have been won at the Australian Open, seven at Wimbledon, three at the US Open and two at the French Open.
Winner: Rome, Wimbledon
