Novak Djokovic is one of the biggest names in modern tennis and while he regularly faces stiff competition from Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, Djokovic appears to have supplanted the two greats in the tennis hierarchy. Despite his strong success and recognition, Novak Djokovic cards are limited, but several appealing options can be found.
Making his professional debut in 2003, the Serbian star won his first ATP title in 2006. Djokovic began to climb up the rankings and notched his first Grand Slam Singles title in 2008 at the Australian Open. Novak Djokovic now holds 20 Grand Slam titles, with two or more wins from each of the major competitions, including the French Open, which he won in 2016 and 2021. This puts him in a three-way tie with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the career record.
Although Novak Djokovic has been a legit star with global recognition for several years, the tennis card market is limited and the majority of his cards were issued by one company. Ace Authentic, later acquired by Leaf, is the place for collectors to find many of the top Novak Djokovic cards.
It is important to note that the available supply for many of his cards is very low, so it will likely take time for collectors to track down the Djokovic cards they are hoping to obtain.
