Novak Djokovic defeated Carlos Alcaraz in the Masters 1000 final in Cincinnati on Sunday, improving his personal stats. But in one area, he’s still ahead of Roger Federer.
Novak Djokovic defeated Carlos Alcaraz in three sets (5: 7, 7: 6, 7: 6) in one of the “toughest matches” of his life on Sunday, thus achieving his 39th victory at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament. Thus, the Serb overtakes Rafael Nadal and Ivan Lendl by the number of victories on the ATP Tour. In these statistics, Belgrade, which has already celebrated 1069 successes, still lags behind two other giants in its sport.
The American and the Swiss are still far ahead of Djokovic in terms of the number of victories:
- Jimmy Connors is with me 1274 wins The man who has won the most matches on tour.
- Roger Federer occupied 1251 victory Second place in this statistic.
- Novak Djokovic with 1069 Match won third place.
That means Djokovic is 182 wins behind Federer this morning. It will be difficult to bridge that gap because the Serb is already 36 years old. We expect him to finish this season and get two more at a high level.

In 2022, the Serb won 42 times, and in 2021 – 55 times. He’s got 37 wins this year and there’s a chance he’ll get to 45. But that would put him more than 170 victorious matches away from Federer. This is a huge gap, especially since the father of two (Stefan and Tara) has greatly reduced his schedule in recent years.
So far this season he has competed in only nine tournaments, including the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati. The reason for this is quite simple: He prioritized comfort and time with his family.

Djokovic would have scored many wins if he could have traveled to the United States during the pandemic, but his vaccination status made it impossible for him to do so. Now that he’s managed to cross the Atlantic again, one success follows another – but he may no longer be catching up to Connors and Federer, at least in these stats.
