Here are some of the key statistics for the all-conquering Serb.

– Djokovic has won seven consecutive tournaments.

– Since losing to Federer at last year’s Cincinnati final in August, Djokovic has won 38 of his next 39 matches.

– He has beaten world number two Murray 11 times from 12 clashes since losing to him in the 2013 Wimbledon final.

– Djokovic is on a 21-match winning streak in grand slams. He has not lost a grand slam match since he was defeated by Stan Wawrinka in the 2015 Roland Garros final.

– He has held the ATP number one ranking since July, 2014.
