Nole needs one more Grand Slam to tie Nadal and Federer
The victory in four sets over the eternal rival Rafa Nadal will be talked about for a long time, and the most important thing is that Novak is in the new final and that he will fight for the 19th Grand Slam on Sunday.
In a conversation with journalists, Djokovic managed to classify where this match was ranked in his career.
The Greek champion will meet Djokovic
Novak was free in the first round, starting participation in the Masters in Italy on Tuesday.
Djokovic had two and a half weeks of rest, since he did not play at the Masters in Madrid after the ATP category 250 tournament in Belgrade.
His opponent is the 31st tennis player in the world, Taylor Fritz, with whom he has met three times so far.
Novak Djokovic says it has taken "a lot of blood, sweat and tears" to break Roger Federer's record of 310 weeks ranked as world number one.
The 33-year-old Serb set the record on Monday for most weeks at number one in the 48-year history of the ATP rankings.
Djokovic won his 18th Grand Slam singles title and his ninth Australian Open crown in Melbourne last month.
Due to the fact that he defended the title, he remained at the same number of points, 12.030, and his advantage over second-placed Rafael Nadal is now 2.180 points.
Djokovic is getting closer to breaking Roger Federer's record of 310 weeks at the top of the ATP list, and that will officially happen on the list that will be published on March 8.
