Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic's (impressive) figures on the London lawn


New master of the Center Court, the Serb aligns the records in his English garden. Nick Kyrgios will have to achieve a real feat this Sunday to make him stumble on the British lawn.


In the event of a coronation, the former world number one will lift the trophy for the fourth consecutive edition, like Pete Sampras.

Only Borg and Federer have done better.

The Swiss had thus aligned five titles between 2003 and 2007.

With 4 hours and 57 minutes, and a duel ending for the first time in a super tie-break, the anthology final of the 2019 edition between Djokovic and Nadal was the longest in history, surpassing that of 2008 won by Rafael Nadal… against Roger Federer in 4 h 48 min.


The title count of the Serbian in Church Road.

Over the last ten editions, he has won his 6 trophies (2011, 2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) and 2021), more than Roger Federer (2012, 2017) and Andy Murray (2013, 2016) combined.

With seven crowns, Djokovic would join Pete Sampras.

Federer still has the record for the number of titles gleaned from London grass (8).


Even if he wins on Sunday, Djokovic will drop to seventh place in the standings on Monday.

He will lose his 2000 points, due to the ATP's decision not to distribute them to "punish" the organizers for having banned Russian and Belarusian players from playing in the tournament.

“Nole” is playing his 8th final at Wimbledon this Sunday.

Of his seven previous games, he lost only once against Murray in 2013…He is now the only player to have played in at least eight finals in three Grand Slam tournaments (Australia, Wimbledon and US Open)!


Relegated to two lengths behind Rafael Nadal in the race for Grand Slam titles (22 for the Spaniard who triumphed this year at the Australian Open and Roland-Garros), and not being, for the time being, authorized – for lack of an anti-covid vaccine – to enter the territory of the United States to play the US Open, the Serb must win on Sunday in a tournament where he had won last season (in the final against Berrettini) his 20th tournament of the Grand Slam.


At the All England Lawn Club, he remains on 27 consecutive victories.

He can get a little closer to the series of Pete Sampras (31), Roger Federer (40) and Björn Borg (41).

The record hunter has become the first player of all time to secure a 32nd Grand Slam final.

The Serb is now one unit ahead of Roger Federer.

Rafael Nadal for his part points to two lengths.


By knocking down Jannik Sinner in five sets in the quarter-finals, the Serb won his 37th match in five sets.

Only the Romanian Illie Nastase (42) did better in the Open era.


With 43 Grand Slam semi-finals played, the Serb is only three lengths behind Federer (46).


By dominating South Korean Kwon Soon-woo in four sets in the first round, the three-time defending champion became the first player, male or female, to win as many matches at each of the four Grand Slam tournaments.

Another record for the insatiable.


The number of his victories at Wimbledon.

Only Federer did better with 105.
