Novak: “Next to the Grand Slams and the [Nitto] ATP Finals, being No. 1 is probably the ultimate challenge in our sport. It’s the pinnacle of the entire season. I’m very proud of that achievement and it’s extra special this year because of the whole process and the journey that I’ve been through in the past 15 months. In particularly, the past 8-10 months. After February’s elbow surgery, it looked quite improbable that I’d be in this position as a year-end No. 1. Not just because of the rankings, being No. 22, but also because of how I felt on the court and how I played. But there was always a part of me that believed I could make it back and I never thought it was impossible.“

But it was a perfect last five months of the year with two Grand Slam titles. Unfortunately, Nadal had to withdraw from all of his tournaments after the US Open, so he was not in that race for No. 1. But at the same time, I thought it was a great five months that I crowned with this achievement.”
