1. MOST GRAND SLAMS IN HISTORY

The course starts with Rafael Nadal con 22 Grand Slams y con Novak Djokovic hot on its heels with 21. How the year will end is a total mystery, but what is virtually certain is that those numbers will dance; the question is which way.

Will Nadal increase the figure beyond 22 or will Djokovic be the one who not only equals the man from Manacor but also surpasses him? Nadal’s clearest opportunity to continue adding goes through pariswhile Djokovic will be a favorite in each Grand Slam.

2. POSIBLE GRAND SLAM

no one has won the Big Four in the same year since Rod Laver in 1969 and the one who came closest to matching him was Djokovic himself, who in 2021 won Australia, Paris and Wimbledon, before losing the final in New York.

3. THE FIFTEENTH ROLAND GARROS

It is a record that is broken year after year. Rafael Nadal is in a position, one more year, to continue increasing its account of titles in Paris. No one in history has won so many times (14) in the same tournament, let alone in a Grand Slam.

Every year has more competition and this season, with Alcaraz and Djokovic, Roland Garros promises to be more exciting than ever.

What it has to do? Win the US Open. If Nadal wins the title in New York, he will do it older than Rosewall. If he wins Roland Garros, he will do it at the age of 37, while if he wins Wimbledon he will be a few days away from the record.

5. RECORD OF TEACHERS’ CUP

After his victory in the past Finals ATPNovak Djokovic is in a position to break the record of six Masters Cups that he currently shares with the now retired Roger Federer.

without the helvetian, Djokovic has a free hand for this year to add a seventh Masters Cup and become the most successful tennis player in history in this tournament.
