Djokovic 20, Federer 20, Nadal 20

Yesterday, Novak Djokovic won his 20th Grand Slam men's singles title in tennis, equaling the record jointly held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Since Federer won his first (at Wimbledon in 2003), there have been 68 Grand Slam tournaments, and these three have won 60 of them (Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray have won three each, Juan Martin Del Potro and Marin Cilic one each). In the over 400 Grand Slam tournaments before Federer won his first, no man won more than 14 titles (Pete Sampras). Whatever comes next (and I assume it will mostly be more Djokovic titles), these three men's joint dominance of their sport has been singular. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 12 July 2021)
