Can Anyone Top Novak Djokovic Soon?

December 12th, 2019 Tennis

The ATP World Tour has Novak Djokovic listed as the top tennis player in the world. He has the strongest numbers in the world right now as he has 13,755 points in the 2015 season as of mid-August. What’s more is that this is all in just seventeen tournaments; most players in the ATP have played in twenty or more this year. This just makes it all the more impressive to see how well Djokovic has done throughout much of the current tennis season.

To make this all the more impressive, he is nearly 4,700 points higher up than Roger Federer, the second-place player in the ATP. He also has close to twice as many points as Andy Murray and more than twice the total that Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka have.

This has helped Djokovic become the favorite to win a variety of major tournaments in the future. He’s an even money favorite to win the 2015 US Open. Andy Murray is the closest to him at +400 betting odds.

He’s also the clear favorite to win other majors in the future. He has +120 odds to win the 2016 Australian Open. He also has a +110 line to win the 2016 French Open plus a +125 line to win at Wimbledon in 2016.

All his competitors are well behind him in terms of their lines. Even Rafael Nadal, who has historically had many of his best matches at the French Open, is at +270 to win at the 2016 edition of the event. Murray isn’t going to have much hometown luck at Wimbledon either as he is at +335 from the sportsbook for the 2016 version of that English tennis event.

The real question at this point entails whether or not Novak Djokovic can be stopped. While it could be rather tough for him, let alone anyone, to win every single major tournament, it is still going to be tough for others to potentially get out there and actually take them on.
