Novak Djokovic has without doubt been the player of the last decade. The Serb has won 25 slams since 2011 and has pretty much dominated Federer and Nadal in recent times and is threatening to break their tennis record by making his own. As season 2020 is about to arrive, we take a look at 4 records awaiting the Serb.
4. 900 Match Wins
The Serbian Superstar won 57 matches in 2019, taking his career win haul to 893. The Serb is now just 7 wins away from a 900 mark and could achieve the feat in 1st quarter of the year.
The Serb could even break Guillermo Vilas’s record of 949 career wins and place his name on the 5th in all time singles win list.
3. A Double Golden Masters
Novak has won 34 Masters 1000 titles in his career. He is the only player in the Open Era to win each of the 9 Masters events at least once.
The Serb has won 8 Masters titles at least twice, with Cincinnati being the only one that he has won only once. If Djokovic wins Cincinnati Open in 2020, he could become the only player in history to win all 9 Masters Trophies at least twice.

2. A Singles Olympics Gold Medal
This is the one achievement Novak Djokovic would want to achieve in 2020 at any cost. The Serb was in tears when he lost in 2016 to Argentina’s Jaun Martin del Potro in the 1st round. In 2008 Beijing Olympics Novak won the Bronze medal.
He would badly want to end his eternal quest for an Olympic Gold IN 2020. If Djokovic does succeed in doing so, he will become the 2nd male player in Open Era after Andre Agassi to win the Career Super Slam, which means winning all 4 Slams, a Season ending finale and an Olympics singles Grand Slam.
1. Most Weeks At World Number 1
Djokovic was World Number 1 for most of the year 2019, only to surrender the position in the closing part to Rafa Nadal. The Serb now has 275 weeks at World Number, 11 less than Pete Sampras and 35 less than the all time leader Roger Federer.
One more stint in 2020 could propel him to the top of the leader board. Currently placed at World Number 2, Djokovic is not very far from the position and 2020 could see him accomplish that feat.
