Novak Djokovic holds several world records in men’s tennis. He was the first man to stay No. 1 for over 350 weeks and the only man to win all four Grand Slams and nine ATP Masters titles at least twice. Serbs have also won more than the top 10 players. But on Tuesday, the 20 Grand Slam winners set another record.

Novak Djokovic made history on Tuesday when he became the first player to hold an 18-0 match record against one opponent on the ATP Tour.

The 34-year-old tennis superstar made a feat in the second round of the Madrid Masters after defeating France’s Gael Monfils 6-3, 6-2 in a biased encounter in the Spanish capital, Kahama Magica.

Djokovic, in the face of ignorance of being deported, played in the match rather than in the best possible way. Australia After the vaccination situation in January, he suffered a series of defeats to the lower players in Dubai, Monte Carlo and Belgrade.

There was nothing that was daunting. He successfully started bidding for his fourth title in Madrid, and it took only 87 minutes to send the French to advance to the pre-quarter of the tournament.

Defeating Monfils, Djokovic overtook something like Roger Federer. Rafael NadalBjorn Borg and Ivan Lendl set a record of 17-0 wins and losses against certain rivals.

Federer of Switzerland set a 17-0 record against two players, David Ferrer of Spain and Mikhail Eugene of Russia. His best friend Nadaru of Spain scored a 17-0 streak against French tennis star Richard Gasquet.

Legendary Swedes Bjorn Borg and Czech Ivan Lendl accomplished this feat against Vitas Gerulaitis and Timothy Mayyacht, respectively, and in fact remained undefeated by these players in their illustrious career.

Djokovic’s victory over Monfils was very important to the French Open champion, as he lost to second place behind French Open holder Daniil Medvedev.

He will face two Wimbledon champions Andy Murray in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
