MOSCOW:  Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has reclaimed the top spot in the new ATP (the Association of Tennis Professionals) Rankings List, which was released on Monday, according to the ATP’s official website.

Djokovic is the all-time leader in the number of weeks atop the ATP Rankings with 381, beating the record previously held by German tennis player Steffi Graf, who was number one in the WTA Rankings (the Women Tennis Association) for a total of 377 weeks.

Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev climbed two places in the new edition of the ATP Rankings after reaching his fifth straight final on the ATP circuit this year, a victory at the 2023 Miami Open. Medvedev, playing under a neutral status, defeated Jannik Sinner of Italy 7-5; 6-3 in the championship of the 2023 ATP Miami Open on Sunday night in the final.

The ATP’s Top Ten list is as follows: Number 1 Novak Djokovic (Serbia), No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz (Spain), No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece), No. 4 Daniil Medvedev (Russian athlete playing under a neutral status at ATP tournaments), No. 5 Casper Ruud (Norway), No.6 Andrey Rublev (Russian athlete playing under a neutral status at ATP tournaments), No. 7 Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada), No. 8 Holger Rune (Denmark), No. 9 Jannick Sinner (Italy) and No. 10 Taylor Fritz (the United States).

Medvedev, 27, was the number one ranked tennis player in the world for 16 weeks in 2012. He is the 2021 US Open Champion in addition to being the winner of 19 ATP tournaments

Commenting on the match against Sinner on Sunday in Miami, Medvedev said: "It's the best start of the season I have ever had."

Russian players’ neutral status at tennis tournaments

On February 28, 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) issued recommendations to international sports federations to bar athletes from Russia and Belarus from taking part in international tournaments, citing Moscow’s special military operation in Ukraine as the reason.

Following the IOC’s recommendations in late February 2022, the majority of global sports federations decided to bar athletes from Russia and Belarus from all international sports tournaments.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) ruled on March 1, 2022 to suspend the membership of the Russian and Belarusian national tennis federations and also canceled all previously scheduled tennis tournaments in these countries.

On March 14, 2022, the ITF also confirmed its prohibition on the Russian and Belarusian national tennis teams from taking part in the 2022 Davis Cup and 2022 Billie Jean King Cup.

However, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) allowed tennis players from Russia and Belarus to continue participating in WTA and ATP tournaments, but under a neutral status.
