NOVAK DJOKOVIC MAKES TENNIS AND SPORTS HISTORY BY WINNING ALL-TIME RECORD 23RD GRAND SLAM AT THE FRENCH OPEN

HUBLOT AMBASSADOR NOVAK DJOKOVIC’S LANDMARK WIN CONFIRMS HIS POSITION AS THE GREATEST AND MOST DECORATED PLAYER IN TENNIS HISTORY

What a match! What a player! What a historic moment! In Paris yesterday afternoon, Hublot ambassador Novak Djokovic won the French Open, his 23rd Grand Slam, making him the most successful player in tennis history. Nole becomes the first male tennis player to reach 23 slams, an astonishing record that may never be bettered. And he’s not done yet! Congratulations Nole! We’re so proud of you!

Nole’s most recent triumph is a further symbol of what he calls “inat”, a Serbian word that has no literal translation into English, but which characterises his relentless, courageous pursuit of excellence. Nole is a true warrior on court, never giving up, always fighting for every point, every win. And off court he’s the same, fully committed to his craft, his passions and of course to his family and friends. His spirit, humility and unique achievements make him a true inspiration, a one-of-a-kind. Nole, we salute you!

 

Nole, 36, turned professional in 2003 and over the past two decades has rewritten tennis history, achieving what many thought impossible, defying the odds and overcoming adversity time and again with his iron will to become the greatest tennis player ever to pick up a racquet. He won his first Grand Slam in 2008 when he picked up the Australian Open title and in the years since, has amassed multiple all-time records, setting himself apart in the most competitive chapter in tennis history.

As well as winning 23 Grand Slams, Nole has also spent more weeks as world number one than any other player, male or female, in history, and finished the year as the highest ranked men’s player a record seven times. He has won 38 ATP Masters 1000 titles, also more than any other player in history.

 

In all, he has won 9X career titles and is one of only eight men to have completed the Career Grand Slam, winning each of the four majors at least once, and one of only four to complete the Double Career Grand Slam. He is also the only male player to have held all four Grand Slam titles at once, and the only player in tennis history to have won all four Grand Slams, all nine ATP 1000 titles and the ATP Tour Finals. Even more remarkably, he has won them all at least twice. Nole, you’re the best!

“Congratulations Nole! What can we say! You are simply amazing! You are an inspiration, a source of enormous joy, a lionheart, the ultimate professional and a true friend. Every year you push yourself to new triumphs, proving you truly are first, different and unique. There’s no one like Nole! On behalf of everyone in the Hublot family, our heartiest and most sincere congratulations on your record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam, and wish you every success as your incredible journey continues. Enjoy this moment. Hublot loves Nole!”
