Novak Djokovic (Serbian: Новак Ђоковић, Novak Đoković; ; born 22 May 1987) is a Serbian professional tennis player who as of November 2012 is ranked the World No. 1 by the ATP and is ranked the year-end World No. 1 for both 2011 and 2012. He has won five Grand Slam singles titles: the 2008, 2011, and 2012 Australian Open; the 2011 Wimbledon Championships; and the 2011 US Open. By winning three Majors in 2011, Djokovic became the sixth male player in the open era to win three Majors in a calendar year.
