It was another day of breaking records for Novak Djokovic.

The Serbian defeated Daniil Medvedev in the final of the Rolex Paris Masters after losing the first set. It's a record-setting 37th Masters 1000 crown and record-extending sixth Paris Masters title. Not to mention, Djokovic avenged his tough final-round loss against the Russian at the US Open.

Yet the history making did not end there. By beating Hubert Hurkacz, 3-6, 6-0, 7-6, in the semifinals the father of two secured the year-end world No. 1 ranking for the seventh time, breaking the tie with Pete Sampras' record.


The world No. 1 came close to not capturing a single Masters 1000 trophy this season, which would have marked the first time since 2017. However, Djokovic managed to play a different game this time around against the gritty baseliner by approaching the net, eliminating time and long rallies behind the baseline. Who said a 20-time Grand Slam champion can't learn new tricks?


Djokovic will now head to Italy to compete at the Nitto ATP Finals. Currently, the 34-year-old holds five ATP Finals titles, one less than Roger Federer.
