Novak Djokovic came to personally enjoy the celebrations in the streets of Belgrade, where hundreds of fans honored his record.
The Serbian tennis player started on Monday as the 311th week as a world unit, thus surpassing the previous maximum, which was held by the Swiss Roger Federer.
The celebrations included fireworks, and Djokovic watched the pyrotechnic show with family members in front of his restaurant.
“Nolo, Nolo,” sang fans wrapped in Serbian flags, ignoring anti-pandemic measures.
Megokotraits of Djokovic were lit on the main buildings in the center of the Serbian capital, and projections of the greatest moments of his stellar career ran on the others.
“This is a special day for me, my family and the whole of Serbia. Thank you for this success, which is not just mine. It belongs to the whole country, “the 18-time Grand Slam champion told the crowd.
Djokovic first sat on the men’s tennis throne on July 4, 2011 after the Wimbledon triumph, when he was 24 years old and 43 days old.
He has been the leader of the ATP 122 weeks world ranking continuously – from 7 July 2014 to 6 November 2016.
The coach of the Slovak coach Marián Vajda has now surpassed Federer and reached the first place in the historical table of tennis players in the number of weeks in the post of world unit.
