Only Nadal could stop Djokovic from breaking the record
Nadal had a chance to prevent Djokovic from breaking Federer’s record. Had Nadal won the ATP Cup, the Australian Open and the Rotterdam Open, he could have overtaken Djokovic in the ATP rankings. However, Nadal withdrew from the ATP Cup due to injury.

So now Djokovic is sure to break Federer’s record. Also, the ATP rankings have also been frozen. This means that any player losing or losing will not make any difference to their rating and ranking.
