Novak has been named the 2014 ITF Men’s World Champion!
The World Champions are based on an objective system that considers all results during the year, giving special weight to the Grand Slam tournaments and Davis Cup.
This is the fourth successive year Novak has received the honour. He won his second Wimbledon title and was a finalist at Roland Garros. Nole also won four ATP Masters 1000 events (Indian Wells, Miami, Rome, Paris), one ATP 500 tournament (Beijing) and the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London. Djokovic played 69 matches in 2014 (61-8 record) and finished the year as no.1 for the third time.
The 27-year-old Serbian star is one of only four men to be named World Champion four or more times, alongside Ivan Lendl, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer.
Serena Williams (USA) took the women’s prize for a fifth time. Americans Bob and Mike Bryan received the honour for the 11th time in 12 years, while Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci of Italy became women’s doubles World Champions for the third straight year.
The ITF World Champions will receive their awards at the ITF World Champions Dinner on Tuesday, June 2, in Paris, during Roland Garros.
