Djokovic consolidates as number one and Federer falls to ninth place in the ATP ranking

Serbian Novak Djokovic strengthened his status as leader of the ATP ranking by conquering Wimbledon, a tournament that was his 20th Grand Slam title and allowed him to equal Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the historical record. Since February 3, 2020, the Belgrade-born player has watched all his colleagues from the top.

He could not lose him first place if he was not champion on the London lawn and if there was a good performance from Daniil Medvedev. However, the 25-year-old Russian fell in the fourth round to Hubert Hurkacz of Poland and reduced his disadvantage over the Balkan by just 90 points.

Within the top-10 the novelties were the exchange of positions between Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem, with the German fifth and the Austrian sixth, and the rise of Matteo Berrettini thanks to his runner-up to eighth place, moving Roger Federer to ninth.

In addition, the Canadian Denis Shapovalov climbed a step to the tenth, where the Spanish Roberto Bautista Agut is no longer. Caressing the top-10 is Hurkacz, who climbed seven spots to 11th after being the big revelation at Wimbledon.

Pablo Cuevas lost two spots this week to finish 86th in the world and seventh among South Americans in the top-100.
