AnalysisEdit

Some experts consider it the greatest season ever in men's tennis. [2][3][4]

Year summaryEdit

Grand slamsEdit

Djokovic managed to reach the final of the 2015 Australian Open after beating Milos Raonic in the quarterfinals and defending champion Stan Wawrinka in the semifinals. He would then defeat Andy Murray in the final, earning him a fifth Australian Open title, an Open Era record.[5]

At the French Open Djokovic reached the final, defeating arch-rival Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinal (becoming only the second man to beat Nadal at Roland Garros) and Andy Murray in the semi-final, but was defeated in the final by Stan Wawrinka which ended a 28-match winning streak and prevented Djokovic from completing a career Grand Slam.

At the 2015 Wimbledon Championships, he started his title defense by beating Philipp Kohlschreiber and Jarkko Nieminen in the first two rounds. He then went on to beat Bernard Tomic in straight sets in the 3rd round. However, in the fourth round, Djokovic dropped the first two sets before coming back to beat Kevin Anderson in five. He then went on to beat Marin Čilić and Richard Gasquet in straight sets to meet Roger Federer in the final, a repeat of last year's final. Djokovic would again prevail in 4 sets, giving him his 9th major and second major of the year, the first time winning multiple majors in a calendar year since 2011.

At the US Open, Djokovic reached the finals by beating Feliciano López in the quarters. In the semis he thrashed Marin Čilić, losing only three games in the entire match. In the finals he managed to trump Roger Federer in a four setter to win the title.[6] Djokovic knocked out the defending champion of every major other than Wimbledon, where he was reigning champion and knocked out 2014's runner up.

Other tournamentsEdit

Djokovic began the year with a warm-up tournament at the World Tennis Championship, but later withdrew from his final against Andy Murray. He then began his season in Doha, Qatar.[7] Djokovic's next tournament is the 2015 Dubai Tennis Championships in late February where he reached the semifinals in 2014 losing to Roger Federer.[8] Djokovic however lost to Federer 3–6, 5–7. He met Federer again in the final of the 2015 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells and won in three sets.[9] Djokovic then competed in the 2015 Miami Open and won the tournament for the fifth time after defeating Andy Murray in the final in three sets.[10]

In the clay season, Djokovic competed in the 2015 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters and won the tournament for the second time after defeating Marin Čilić in the quarterfinals, Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, and Tomáš Berdych in the final, thus extending his winning streak to 17 matches. He also won his 23rd Masters title, tying Roger Federer.[11][12] Djokovic withdrew from the Madrid Open to rest for the Italian Open and the French Open.[13] After withdrawing from Madrid, Djokovic won his fourth Rome title at the 2015 Internazionali BNL d'Italia by defeating Roger Federer in the final in straight sets, thus extending his winning streak to 22 matches.

In the summer hard court season, Djokovic competed in both the 2015 Rogers Cup and the 2015 Western & Southern Open where he reached the final in both tournaments. In the former, Djokovic lost to Andy Murray in three sets, ending his 8 match winning streak against Murray, while in the latter, Djokovic lost to Roger Federer in two sets, ending his 3 match winning streak against Federer, as well as ending his quest for a complete set of Masters 1000 titles. After the US Open, during the fall Asian swing, Djokovic won his sixth China Open title and his third Shanghai Masters title, winning all his matches in straight sets. After winning in Shanghai, Djokovic won his sixth masters title of the year at the 2015 BNP Paribas Masters defeating Andy Murray in the final for his sixth win of the season against Murray.

Djokovic became the only player to beat each player from the top 10 in the 2015 tennis season.
