Novak Djokovic is regarded as the master of masters. At 36 years old, the Serb has been crowned for the seventh time at the tournament that brings together the world’s top eight players.
The triumph allows him to break Roger Federer’s previous record of six trophies, adding a fresh one to his unrivaled array of achievements.
He overcame Jannik Sinner in the final on Sunday in Turin, overcoming the Italian’s home-field advantage.
The Serbian won the final 6-3, 6-3 in two sets, with the Italian hardly getting close enough to challenge him.
This was hardly the heated battle he received from Carlos Alcaraz in the Wimbledon Final, when the Spaniard laid out the strategy for defeating the seemingly unstoppable Serb.
If the Serbian’s Grand Slam statistics stand out, then his Masters Cup record should as well. He never appears to struggle in any tournament.
Djokovic has won 50 matches in the competition, nine more than Federer, allowing him to accumulate 14,1000 tour points since his debut in 2007. During that time, he earned more than $23 million.
Last Monday, he was presented with the trophy at the Alpitour headquarters in Turin, confirming him as the season’s number one for the eighth time. The words history and Novak Djokovic have become interchangeable.
