Serbian' Djokovic Wins 83rd Career Title at Home

Novak Djokovic defeats Alex Molcan to win his 83rd ATP Tour title at 2021 Belgrade Open.




World No. 1 Novak Djokovic captured the 83rd title of his career on Saturday with victory on home soil at the Belgrade Open 2021.


The Serbian superstar lost his serve three times in the first set before changing his game to defeat Slovakian qualifier and first-time ATP Tour finalist Alex Molcan 6-4, 6-3 in 88 minutes at the Novak Tennis Center.

“It’s been a while since I last played here in front of a crowd,” said Djokovic. “We played here one month ago [at the Serbia Open], without a crowd. To hold a trophy here after 10 years is really special and it couldn’t be better ahead of Roland Garros. I am playing well, feeling good and I have spent quality time with my family.”



Djokovic, who wins a record 9 Australian Open title in February 2021, has now won three titles in Belgrade, including two at the Serbian Open in 2009 and 2011. 


The 34-year-old improves to a 20-3 record on the season and will next travel to Paris, where he will play American Tennys Sandgren in the Roland Garros first round.
