Novak Djokovic has the chance to make history next month, and if he wins the 2013 Western & Southern Open title in Cincinnati he'll become the first player to have won all nine Masters 1000 tournaments.

Djokovic has been one of the ATP's best players since 2007, and from 2011 onwards he's been arguably the best player in the world. Following his incredible achievements in recent years, the Serb has the opportunity to make history at next month's ATP Cincinnati.

Should Djokovic win the title, he'll become the first singles players to have won all nine of the ATP's Masters 1000 series events.

The achievement is so unprecedented that the ATP World Tour and the Western & Southern Open have created a competition encouraging fans to create a name for the unprecedented sweep. Believe it or not, Djokovic could have completed the sweep at the Monte-Carlo Masters this year had he not been beaten in four Cincinnati finals. This is the one title that has remained elusive.

Djokovic currently holds a 14-10 record in Masters finals and he'll surely be fired up about the chance of making this 15-10.

This sweep could provide the Djoker with the best consolation prize imaginable following his failure to complete the Career Grand Slam at Roland Garros this year. Djokovic gave it his all in Paris but couldn't deny the relentless charge of Rafael Nadal in their thrilling five-set semi-final.
