Novak Djokovic defeated Italy's Jannik Sinner on Sunday in the final of the Masters in Turin to win the tournament that brings together the best players of the season for the seventh time in his career. One more record in the already well-stocked bag of the world number 1.

The weight of the years does not seem to have any effect on Novak Djokovic's body. At 36 years old, the Serb has just broken a new record by beating the Italian Jannik Sinner, 13 years his junior, in the final of the Masters in Turin (6-3 / 6-3). By winning the "Masters tournament" for the seventh time, the one that brings together the best players of the year at the end of each season, the world number 1 became the sole holder of the most victories in the event, which he had previously shared with Roger Federer. Another record for the Serb adds to a series of performances that only he has managed to achieve.

24: Number of Grand Slam victories

On Sunday, September 10, Novak Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev in the final of the US Open. She won her 24th Grand Slam tournament, equalling the all-time record for both men and women held by American Margaret Court. A few months earlier, by winning his third title at Roland-Garros, at the expense of Norway's Casper Ruud, he had already become the record holder for the number of victories in the men's premier category, surpassing Spain's Rafael Nadal.

36: Number of Grand Slam finals

No player in history has been in such a position to triumph in the most prestigious of categories. The Serb is ahead of Roger Federer, who has been stuck at 31 finals, and Rafael Nadal, who has 30.

40: Number of Masters 1000 titles

These are the most challenging events on the tour, apart from the Grand Slam tournaments. In this category too, no one has done better than Novak Djokovic in the history of the little yellow ball. With 40 trophies, the last of which he won at the beginning of November at Bercy, he is four points ahead of Rafael Nadal. Roger Federer completes the podium with 28 titles. Among the current players in the top 10, Russia's Daniil Medvedev has the best record in the category with... 6 trophies won. All categories combined, the record for singles titles remains, for the time being, in the hands of Jimmy Connors (109). With 98 trophies, Djokovic climbs to the third step of this podium, behind Roger Federer (103).

8: Number of seasons completed as world No. 1

This victory at the Turin Masters actually allowed Novak Djokovic to smash two records. In addition to the number of titles won in the tournament, the Serb also became the player who has completed the most seasons as world No. 1. Thanks to this victory against Jannik Sinner, the Serb is guaranteed to finish the year at the top of the tennis hierarchy for the eighth time in his career. No one had achieved such a feat in history, neither the American Pete Sampras (six times), nor the trio of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Jimmy Connors (five times).

400: Number of weeks spent at number one in the world

This is the corollary of the previous record. The week that begins on Monday will be Novak Djokovic's 400th as world No. 1. A staggering figure and, above all, an absolute record for "Nole", men and women combined. Only Germany's Steffi Graf was able to resist her until last February with 377 weeks. On the men's side, Roger Federer (310) and Pete Sampras (286) are well ahead.
