Novak Djokovic (Serbian: Новак Ђоковић, Novak Đoković; pronounced [nɔ̂ʋaːk dʑɔ̂ːkɔʋitɕ] ( listen); born 22 May 1987) is aSerbian professional tennis player who is ranked World No. 1 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). He is considered to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time.[a] He has won six Grand Slam singles titles: the 2008, 2011, 2012, and 2013Australian Open; the 2011 Wimbledon Championships; and the 2011 US Open. He was the year-end World No. 1 for both 2011 and 2012.[13][14] By winning three Grand Slam titles in 2011, Djokovic became the sixth male player in the Open Era to win three Grand Slams in a calendar year. He is the first male player representing Serbia to win a Grand Slam singles title. By reaching the 2012 French Open final, he became the ninth player in the Open Era to reach the final of all four Grand Slam singles tournaments (and became only the fifth to do so consecutively). Amongst other titles, he won the Tennis Masters Cup in 2008 and 2012 and was on the Serbian team which won the 2010 Davis Cup. He also won the Bronze medal in men's singles at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He has won 14 Masters 1000 series titles (breaking a single-season record with five titles in 2011), placing him fourth on the list since its inception in 1990.

He holds several men's world records of the Open Era: becoming the youngest player in the Open Era to have reached the semifinals of all four Grand Slam events both separately and consecutively;[15] the first and only man to win three consecutiveAustralian Open titles in the Open Era;[16] and playing the longest Grand Slam men's singles final in history (5 hours 53 minutes).[17] Djokovic's ATP tournament records include winning 31 consecutive ATP World Tour Masters 1000 series matches, playing in the finals at all nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments (a record matched by Roger Federer), and being the only player to win eight.

Djokovic has won numerous awards, including the 2011 Laureus World Sports Award for Sportsman of the Year[18] and the 2012Best Male Tennis Player ESPY Award. He has won the ATP World Tour Player of the Year twice consecutively, in 2011 and 2012. He is a recipient of the Order of St. Sava[19] and the Order of the Star of Karađorđe.[20]
