Novak Djokovic equals Steffi Graf's record for most weeks as world No.1

    Novak Djokovic holds the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup trophy following his Australian Open victory.

    (CNN)Novak Djokovic has achieved another milestone in his illustrious tennis career, equaling Steffi Graf's record for the most weeks as world No. 1.

    Djokovic already holds the record for the most weeks as men's world No.1, surpassing Roger Federer's mark of 310 weeks in March 2021, and on Monday he drew level with German great Graf by beginning his 377th week in the top spot.
    The 35-year-old is currently on 7,070 points, 590 more than Spain's Carlos Alcaraz, who won the Argentina Open Sunday, and so looks set to overtake Graf when the new world rankings are announced on February 27.
      Djokovic returned to world No. 1 when he won a record 10th Australian Open last month. It was his 22nd major title, which tied him with Rafael Nadal for the most grand slam singles titles in men's tennis.
        Graf, who hit the top of the women's rankings for the first time in 1987, finished a stellar career with 22 grand slam titles.
