The net worth of Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic is $220 million. In the midst of an incredible run of success, Novak Djokovic has cemented his place as one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
There has never been a player with all four major titles on three distinct surfaces, and he achieved this feat in 2016. There has never been a male tennis player who has won all nine Masters 1000 tournaments as he has. He has been the top-ranked player in the ATP rankings five times in his career. Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have a long-standing rivalry that has resulted in some of the sport’s most exciting contests.
Born on May 22, 1987, in Belgrade, Serbia, Novak Djokovic is a Serbian professional tennis player. He grew up with two brothers in the same household. Tennis was Djokovic’s first sport when he was just four years old.
When Djokovic was just six years old, Jelena Geni noticed him and instantly recognized his potential. Djokovic was then privately taught by Jelena Geni throughout the course of the following six years until he was moved to Germany to work with Nikola Pili. He spent four years in Pili’s academy, where he began his junior tennis career in the middle of his studies.
Novak Djokovic became a professional tennis player in 2003, but it wasn’t until 2005 that he qualified for his first Grand Slam tournament, the Australian Open. He had strong showings in Wimbledon and the US Open that year as well. He was among the world’s top 40 golfers by 2006. At the Dutch Open that year, he won his maiden ATP championship. Djokovic moved up to the top 20 with a victory at the Moselle Open.
Djokovic had his first-ever top 10 appearances in 2007 after breaking through. In that year, he shocked the tennis world by winning the Rogers Cup by defeating Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer. They were the top three players in the world at the time. It was in 2008 that he won his first Grand Slam tournament, the Australian Open. The year was capped off by Djokovic’s maiden Tennis Masters Cup victory and a bronze medal in the Olympics.
When it came to the year 2009, Novak Djokovic was the world’s third-ranked tennis player, thanks to his 10 final appearances and five championships. As of 2011, Djokovic has become the world’s top-ranked tennis player, making 2010 his most successful year yet. That year, he won a total of eleven titles, including the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. Djokovic’s exploits that year were hailed as one of the greatest in athletic history, despite the fact that he was forced to retire due to a back injury.
In 2012, Djokovic bounced back to win the Australian Open for the second time. He ended the year by defeating Rafael Nadal in the ATP World Tour Finals in 2012. He once again topped the rankings at the end of the year. Even though he lost his number one status to Rafael Nadal in 2014, Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open for the second time in 2013. In 2011, a wrist injury curtailed his progress, but he bounced back at Wimbledon to defeat Rafael Nadal and recover the world’s number one status.
Djokovic’s 2015 achievements contributed to one of the finest tennis seasons ever. Aside from his many championships, Djokovic beat Nadal at the French Open. In 2016, he had an insurmountable lead in points over his opponents. He won all four major events that year, completing the “Nole Slam.” Despite this, Djokovic finished second that year due to a series of losses.
At the Australian Open, Djokovic was defeated by a player rated outside the top 100. To gain a competitive edge, Djokovic sacked his whole coaching group and recruited Andre Agassi. Sadly, an elbow injury sidelined him for much of the season. In 2018, he had elbow surgery mid-season. He regained form and won his first Golden Masters. He finally regained the world’s number one ranking. He won the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2019. Novak Djokovic will be the world’s best tennis player in 2020.
