Many congrats on this amazing achievement @DjokerNole
23 is a number that just a few years back was imposible to think about, and you made it!
Enjoy it with your family and team! ??

Breaking the all-time Major record held with Rafael Nadal at 22, Djokovic now stands alone on the men’s side with 23 Majors.
Winning the Australian Open in January, Djokovic will now set his sights on defending his Wimbledon Championship next month in London.
The 36-year-old is also in pursuit of the calendar Grand Slam.
Ruud, who was looking to win his first-career Major, reached the finals of the French Open and US Open last year.
The 24-year-old owns 10 career titles.
Tickets for this year’s Wimbledon Championships are available through P1 Travel.
