This past Sunday night, Novak Djokovic was lifting the Nitto ATP Finals champion trophy. Not even 24 hours have passed since he was proclaimed as the player with the most titles in the tournament that brings together the eight best of the season with a total of seven crowns.
This Monday at 4.10 pm, the No. 1 Pepperstone ATP Ranknigs flight from Turin landed at Malaga airport, where he will join the Serbian team in the Davis Cup Final 8.
In a room in the terminal, Feliciano López, director of the Davis Cup, was waiting for him, who received him with a special greeting: “What’s up, man! Congratulations!”. “Macho, macho!” Djokovic responded in a humorous tone before melting into a hug.

The Balkan team, captained by Viktor Troicki, in addition to being led by Djokovic, will have in its ranks Laslo Djere, Dusan Lajovic, Miomir Kecmanovic and Hamad Medjedovic.
Serbia will play the quarterfinals of this competition next Thursday, November 23 (not before 4:00 pm CET) against Great Britain, which beyond the loss recently announced by Andy Murray, will have Cameron Norrie, Jack Draper , Liam Broady, Neal Skupski and Joe Salisbury on their poster.
Salisbury also arrives in Malaga as the current champion of the Nitto ATP Finals, although in the doubles category, along with the American Rajeev Ram. This Sunday they revalidated their title for the second consecutive year in Turin.
Djokovic, who this week celebrates 400 weeks as No. 1, has played 61 matches this season, posting a record of 55-6. He will now try to put the cherry on top of a brilliant season in the Davis Cup, with what would be his second Salad Cup (2010).
