Krajicek, a Texas A&M Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, made history as the first Aggie to finish a year as the top-ranked player in an ATP ranking. In 2023, he achieved the No. 1 spot on the ATP Doubles Rankings alongside his partner Ivan Dodig, who was ranked No. 2 in the world. Together, they secured five tournament wins and clinched the Grand Slam Title at the French Open at Roland Garros, after losing in the Paris title match in 2022.
Krajicek posted a 47-19 record in doubles and held the No. 1 ranking for 13 weeks, including 10 consecutive weeks at the end of the season. Hailing from Tampa, Florida, he amassed 7,130 doubles points and became one of the top-performing players in this category. His point disparity with Dodig (510 points) is still significant but not as large as it was compared to Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden (who tied for third place), which is only 740 points apart.
Krajicek and Dodig claimed all five titles at or above the ATP 500 levels and reached the U.S Open Semifinals together. Their impressive performance throughout the season cemented their place among some of the best doubles teams globally today.
Overall Krajicek had an outstanding performance in doubles during his career with multiple records under his name and many accomplishments that will be remembered for years to come.
In conclusion, Krajicek’s achievements are truly remarkable and worthy of recognition as he has cemented himself as one of the greatest doubles players ever to come out of Texas A&M University.
