I usually post about the WTA, but as a fan of both tennis tours I can’t help but acknowledge the incredible 2015 achievements of Novak Djokovic. The 28-year old Serbian superstar put an exclamation point on one of the greatest seasons in ATP Tour history with his 5th ATP World Tour Finals Title and record 4th in a row. His numbers this year are stunning. He won 11 titles, going 82-6 (93.2%) overall in match play. He failed to reach a final only once, reaching a record 15 finals in a row. He set an ATP Tour prize money record with $21,595,000, pushing his career prize money total to $91.22 million. All of that is before endorsements and sponsorships are factored in. He won 3 Majors (Australian Open, Wimbledon, US Open) while finishing runner-up in the 4th (Roland Garros). That’s actually better than Serena’s Major performance in 2015, as she lost in the US Open semifinals. Nole was an impressive 31-5 against top 10 opponents and captured 6 Masters level titles. Only 2 things are missing for his career, a Roland Garros title and an Olympic Singles Gold Medal. Both can be achieved in 2016.
