Cincinnati Masters is an Irony of Djokovic’s Career
The 13-time Grand Slam title winner, Djokovic, has won eight other Masters 1000 titles at least one time, but at the Cincinnati Open, he has not been able to make the title even once. Novak Djokovic will be hoping to break this irony of his tennis career.
He has won all four major Grand Slam titles (six Australian Open, one French Open, four Wimbledon and two American Open) and have completed his career grand slam.
Novak Djokovic had been away from court for last year due to an injury to elbow. But he won the Wimbledon 2018 title as his career’s 13th Grand Slam title and returned to the form. The former World No. 1 is currently ranked World No. 10 in ATP Rankings.
