Novak Djokovic has today started his 287th week at No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings and passed his childhood idol Pete Sampras (286 weeks) for second place in the all-time list of most weeks in top spot.“Pete was my childhood idol growing up, so of course surpassing his record is very special to me,” said Djokovic, who today won the Internazionali BNL d'Italia title for the fifth time. “I always looked up to him, and I wished to be mentally strong and resilient as he was, especially in the big tournaments, in the big moments. He's one of the most mentally composed and toughest players ever to hold a racquet. Being a World No. 1 for so many weeks proves how tough he was.”The Serbian, who began his fifth stint at the summit of men’s professional tennis on 3 February 2020, is now 24 weeks away from breaking Roger Federer’s record of 310 weeks at No. 1. If Djokovic continues to hold onto the top spot, he will pass Federer's record on 8 March 2021.“This is one of my two biggest professional goals,” said Djokovic. “To reach the record of, [and] surpass Roger's record for longest [time at] No. 1 and win as many [Grand] Slams as possible. I have been saying that before, so I'm working towards that. I'm at a good place right now, in a good position. Hopefully I can stay healthy and continue to play well.”ALL-TIME WEEKS AT NO. 1 No. 1 Player Total Weeks Longest Streak 1) Roger Federer 310 237 weeks 2) Novak Djokovic 287 122 weeks 3) Pete Sampras 286 102 weeks 4) Ivan Lendl 270 157 weeks 5) Jimmy Connors 268 160 weeks Sampras, who first rose to No. 1 on 12 April 1993, spent a total of 11 stints in top spot, with his longest run of 102 weeks between 15 April 1996 and 29 March 1998. In his current period at No. 1, which has been impacted by this year’s global COVID-19 pandemic, 33-year-old Djokovic has compiled an 18-1 match record, including three tour-level titles.“In our sport, winning [the] most Grand Slams and being No. 1 for as long as possible are [the] two biggest goals,” said Djokovic, who has 17 Grand Slam championship crowns – third on the all-time list behind Rafael Nadal (19) and Federer (20). "I think Roger and Rafa would agree with that.“We all have our own journeys, our own trajectories and careers that are very unique and very specific, but at the same time, we have this era that we have been playing in together that brings us together. I think this is definitely one of the best eras of tennis, and I'm grateful to be part of such an era with these two guys. They are incredible champions on and off the court… Let's see. The race is of course there, and hopefully Rafa and I can stay healthy, and with Roger back [in 2021], it's going to be great for our sport.”Djokovic, who currently has 11,260 points at No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings, leads second-placed Nadal (9,850) by 1,410 points in the battle to finish as the 2020 year-end No. 1 for a record-equalling sixth time.
