Novak Djokovic won his 9th Australian Open title this year

Moving onto tennis, Djokovic began the year on a great note, winning his 18th Grand Slam title in Melbourne. After that, he surpassed Roger Federer in holding the top spot in rankings for the most number of weeks.

He took a break from the Tour and returned back on the clay courts of Monte Carlo. He even competed in the ATP Serbia Open in Belgrade. Unfortunately, he did not see through the events and fell short.

However, in the last week, he did showcase top-quality tennis in the Italian capital, Rome. Although he lost to Rafael Nadal in the final, they played an amazing match of the highest quality.

Nonetheless, it’s his 34 birthday today and he deserves to celebrate this great occasion. He will be seen soon in Paris, looking to lift his second French Open title.
