The sensational Serb saw off Roger Federer in a one-sided final, having earlier knocked out Rafael Nadal and Rod Laver.
When the vote was concluded at 18:15 on Thursday May 4, Djokovic had collected the lion's share of the 900,289 votes cast. In tennis terms, it was about 6-0 6-1.

Djokovic has won 17 Grand Slam titles, three short of Roger Federer’s record haul.
But the 32-year-old leads their head-to-head, something that Pat Cash used as evidence when claiming Federer wasn’t "even the second greatest in his own era". Rafael Nadal also has the edge over Federer.

The vote was held in conjunction with when Roland Garros should have been held, with the women’s vote kicking off on Thursday and running until Sunday.
