Djokovic led the way in 2014

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
There were a handful of guys who had a great season on the ATP World Tour, but for the third time in four years, nobody was better than Novak Djokovic.
For a third time in those four years Djokovic finished as the year-end No. 1. This time around he did it with seven titles and a lofty 61 match wins (61-8) to finish in the Top 3 for an eighth straight year.
The steady Serbian star won seven of his eight finals, including a second Wimbledon championship in four years and a tour-best four Masters titles. His lone setback in a final came at the French Open, where he gave way to Rafael Nadal for the second time in three campaigns, as Roland Garros remains the only major title that has eluded the seven-time Grand Slam champion from Belgrade.
