Novak Djokovic celebrates 400 weeks as World No. 1

Novak Djokovic today begins a record-extending 400th week as No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, more than 12 years after he first rose to the top.

Djokovic, who clinched ATP Year-End No. 1 presented by Pepperstone for a record eighth time during the Nitto ATP Finals, claimed a record-breaking seventh season finale title Sunday in Turin to welcome in his 400th week at the top in style.

“It’s a pretty good achievement, 400 weeks at No. 1. It’s never been done in history. Someone will eventually break it, but hopefully it stays there for a long time,” Djokovic said.

In February, Djokovic broke Stefanie Graf’s record of 377 weeks to become the all-time men’s and women’s leader, having passed Roger Federer’s 310-week mark in 2021 for most weeks at No. 1 by a man.

ALL-TIME WEEKS AT NO. 1 (MEN AND WOMEN)

No. 1 Player  Total Weeks
1) Novak Djokovic 400
2) Stefanie Graf 377
3) Martina Navratilova 332
4) Serena Williams 319
5) Roger Federer 310

Djokovic will have many more milestones ahead of him in 2024.

He is just two trophies away from 100 career titles, and with 1,086 victories, he is likely to become just the third man in history to pass 1,100 match wins (Jimmy ConnorsRoger Federer).

And he will look to add to his record 24 Grand Slams (including 10 Australian Opens) and 40 ATP Masters 1000 titles.
