Novak Djokovic continues to rewrite the record books, extending his sizable ‘Big Titles’ advantage by winning the Rolex Paris Masters on Sunday.
By defeating Grigor Dimitrov in the Paris-Bercy final, the Serbian claimed his 40th ATP Masters 1000 trophy, becoming the first player to reach that milestone.
Djokovic has now won 70 ‘Big Titles’, which is a combination of Grand Slam championships, trophies at the Nitto ATP Finals and ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, and Olympic singles gold medals.
Djokovic has won one ‘Big Title’ for every 3.1 events played (70/217). Only three other players have claimed ‘Big Titles’ at a rate better than one for every five events played: Nadal (1/3.5), Federer (1/4.4) and Pete Sampras (1/4.9).
The 36-year-old has won the Rolex Paris Masters seven times, also a record. Having also emerged victorious in Cincinnati this year, he has earned multiple Masters 1000 titles in 12 seasons during his career.
Djokovic is tied for the most titles on the ATP Tour this season with six (also Carlos Alcaraz) according to Infosys ATP Stats. The 97-time tour-level titlist is three triumphs away from becoming the third player on record to reach 100 titles (Jimmy Connors, 109 and Federer, 103).
