ATP Rankings: Medvedev Dethrones Djokovic to become world number one

Author: Yuvi June 13, 2022


Daniil Medvedev on Monday became the world No. 1 male player for the second time on Monday after Novak Djokovic slipped to number three in the ATP rankings. Last week, Medvedev was in action at the Libema Open, where he advanced to his second tour-level final on grass at the ATP 250 event. Meanwhile, Medvedev’s rise came after Novak Djokovic failed to defend his crown at the French Open.

Medvedev is unable to compete at this year’s Wimbledon as Russian and Belarusian players have been banned following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. However, ranking points will not be awarded.

For the first time in 19 years, none of the ‘Big Three’ – Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer – occupy the first two places.

Rafael Nadal remains in fourth place despite losing 1,000 points from last year’s French Open, while Djokovic has fallen 2000 points from his winning run at Roland Garros last year. With last year’s edition dropping points this week, the Serb has dropped a few places to No.

French Open runner-up Casper Roode has moved up from Stefanos Tsitsipas to fifth place. While Alexander Zverev has climbed to the second number for the first time. However, the German is facing a period after tearing a ligament in his right ankle during the French Open semi-final with Nadal.

Zverev’s participation at Wimbledon 2022 is still in doubt after his injury at the French Open, while Nadal’s fitness will remain in the limelight when he needs an injection for a Roland-Garros win.

Andy Murray secured his first Top 5 win since defeating Novak Djokovic in 2016 by defeating world number 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals. Murray defeated Nick Kyrgios in the semifinals and lost to Matteo Berrettini in the championship match.

Nick Kyrgios has climbed 13 places to 65th in the rankings after reaching the last four in Stuttgart. The 27-year-old defeated Jiri Leheka, Nikoloz Basilashvili and Maarten Fuskovics to reach his second semi-final of the season.
