Novak Djokovic begins his 400th week this Monday – a record amount in tennis history – as No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, more than 12 years after he first rose to the top.

During the Nitto ATP Finals, ‘Nole’ had just secured year-end No. 1 for the eighth time, an honor presented by Pepperstone and one that no one has achieved more times than him in history. And on Sunday in Turin he claimed a seventh title in the season-ending tournament (another record) to welcome his 400th week at the top.

“It’s a pretty good achievement, 400 weeks at No. 1. It has never been achieved in history. Someone will eventually break it, but let’s hope it stays there for a long time,” Djokovic said.

Djokovic will have many more milestones ahead of him in 2024. He is just two trophies away from reaching 100 career titles. With 1,086 wins, he is likely to become the third man in history to surpass 1,100 wins (after Jimmy Connors and Roger Federer). And he will look to add to his record of 24 Grand Slams (including 10 Australian Opens) and 40 ATP Masters 1000 titles.
