By lifting his ninth Australian Open crown (d. Medvedev) eight days ago, Djokovic guaranteed that he would surpass Federer's weeks at No. 1 record on 8 March. The Serbian's success at Melbourne Park has underpinned his record run as World No. 1.

The 34-year-old Djokovic has compiled a 387-53 win-loss record as World No. 1, including a 117-30 mark against Top 10 opponents and a 39-13 record in tour-level finals.
