Djokovic Continues World No. 1 Dominance In Latest ATP Rankings

by Nurein Ahmed

The freshly published ATP rankings continued to bear the same narrative - Novak Djokovic continuing his dominance of the World No. 1 spot.

Among the Top 10, only Holger Rune was in action on tour this past week, playing at the Montpellier Open, where his campaign ended in the semifinal due to injury. That means there weren't any new entrants into the ATP's elite club.

Djokovic, meanwhile, kept his 600-point gap over Carlos Alcaraz, clocking his 411th week as the No. 1, and the Serbians' chances of remaining in the top spot until at least the French Open received a major boost by signing up to play in Indian Wells.

With some of the ATP's top names playing at the Davis Cup last weekend, none of them added any points, bar Rune, who played an ATP event. Australian Open finalist Daniil Medvedev remained third, while the Melbourne champion Jannik Sinner is fourth.

Alex de Minaur, Casper Ruud, and Grigor Dimitrov will begin their Top 10 quest in the next few weeks. The Bulgarian has signed up to play in the ATP 250 event in Marseille this week and might break that barrier again.

Kazakhstan's Alexander Bublik was the biggest winner at the weekend, after winning his second Montpellier crown by beating Borna Coric in the final.

Bublik rises to a career-high ranking of No. 23, with the Croat soaring six spots to No. 31. Flavo Cobolli continues his excellent start to the season by reaching the quarterfinal in Montpellier. He climbs to a career-best rank of No. 71.

Rinky Hijikata failed to defend his champion's points from the Burnie Challenger and dropped 14 spots to No. 88. But Jurij Rodionov was a winner at the Koblenz Challenger, and he re-enters the Top 100, peaking at No. 89.

Federico Coria also rejoined the Top 100 by virtue of his runner-up finish at the Piracicaba Challenger (No. 93). You can track all your favorite players by checking our dedicated rankings page.
