Three weeks after the 2006 Wimbledon, Djokovic won his maiden ATP title at the Dutch Open in Amersfoort without losing a set, defeating Nicolás Massú in the final. Djokovic won his second career title in the same year at the Open de Moselle in Metz. In 2007, he defeated Guillermo Cañas in the final to claim the Key Biscayne title in Miami. Djokovic won his fifth title of the year at the BA-CA Tennis Trophy in Vienna. He received the Golden Badge award for the best athlete in Serbia.

The following year Djokovic won the singles title at the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships. Djokovic won ten tournaments in 2011, including Grand Slam tournament victories at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Djokovic also captured a record-breaking five ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles. Consequently Novak Djokovic was named 2011 ITF World Champion.
