A day after winning his 10th Australian Open and 22nd Grand Slam singles title, Novak Djokovic returned to the top of the ATP rankings, moving four spots to the No 1 spot. This marks the 374th week as the men’s world No 1. If the Serb remains No 1 till February 20, he will tie the all-time record for most weeks at world No 1 in tennis history (men or women) currently held by Germany’s Stefanie Graf, who was No 1 for 377 weeks in the women’s game.

US Open champion Carlos Alcaraz, who missed the Australian Open due to injury, drops one spot to No 2 while Stefanos Tsitsipas, the runner-up in Melbourne, moves up one place to No 3.

The top 3 are followed by Norway’s Casper Ruud at No 4 (-1), Russia’s Andrey Rublev at No 5 (+1), Spain’s Rafael Nadal at No 6 (-4), Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime at No 7, American Taylor Fritz at No 8 (+1), Danish teen Holger Rune at No 9 (+1), and Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz at No 10 (+1).

Former world No 1 Daniil Medvedev, who lost in the finals in Melbourne last year but was knocked out in the third round this year, drops out of the top 10 and is now ranked No 12.
