10 things to look forward to in the Australian Open 2020 (Part 2)

“Nole” has a record of 899 wins and 187 losses in the ATP. If you pass the first round of the Australian Open 2020, Djokovic will become the sixth player in the Open era to reach 900 wins.

Federer’s other 100 goals. Last season, Federer won the 100th ATP title when crowned in Dubai. The Swiss player also surpassed the 100 mark at Wimbledon with 101 victories.

For the 21st time in a row to Melbourne, “Express Train” has a record of 97 wins and 14 losses here. Last year, he broke a 17-match winning streak when he was eliminated in the fourth round by Stefanos Tsitsipas. If he passes the third round this year, Federer will reach the 100-match mark in the Australian Open.

The battle for number one. Ahead of the 2020 Australian Open, Nadal is ahead of Djokovic in the ATP rankings of 515 points. And that fragile gap is easily blotted out after this tournament.

Djokovic needs to defend 2000 points, while in Nadal the corresponding is 1200 points. The Serbian will regain the number one spot if he wins the 2020 Australian Open, while the Spanish opponent is eliminated before the semi-finals.

Nadal and Djokovic are two of the six players who hold the top of the ATP score table for at least 200 weeks. In this statistic, Roger Federer leads with 310 weeks, Pete Sampras is second with 286 weeks. Djokovic, Ivan Lendl, Jimmy Connors and Nadal stand behind with 275, 270, 268 and 207 weeks (of which Nadal as of January 13, 2020).

Waiting for the next generation of Gen to explode. Statistics show that no one in the Next Gen group under 30 won the Grand Slam. In the US Open last year, Daniil Medvedev almost did that, but eventually the 23-year-old lost to Nadal after five dramatic sets.

Medvedev, Tsitsipas and Zverev are expected to challenge Nadal – Djokovic – Federer from the Australian Open this year. Medvedev, Tsitsipas and Zverev are expected to challenge Nadal – Djokovic – Federer from the Australian Open this year.
