Novak Djokovic Continues World No. 1 Dominance In Latest ATP Rankings

by Nurein Ahmed

Novak Djokovic will reign supreme at the top of the men's rankings for the 398th week and has virtually sealed the year-end No. 1 ranking.

The Serbian superstar won the Paris Masters for an unprecedented seventh time in his career, beating Grigor Dimitrov in Sunday's final. Djokovic added 600 points from winning the title, stretching his lead over Alcaraz to 2,990 points.

Djokovic is now guaranteed to clinch the year-end No. 1 ranking, either by winning one round-robin match at the ATP Finals or Alcaraz losing at least one round-robin match. The world's Top 3 will not have a new entrant by the end of the year, so Jannik Sinner cannot improve beyond fourth in the rankings.

But Russia's Daniil Medvedev can swap places with Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard will need at least two wins on his Turin debut to be sure of remaining the No. 2 player. Holger Rune drops to 10th after losing in the quarterfinal in his Bercy title defense.

Casper Ruud will complete his last week in the Top 10 before he exits that club next week for the first time since August 2021. The Norwegian failed to qualify for the ATP Finals and will lose his runner-up points from last year (precisely 800).

Grigor Dimitrov rejoins the Top 15 after his scintillating run to his second Masters 1000 final. Although he lost to Djokovic in the final, the Bulgarian one-hander is guaranteed to finish inside that cader for the third time in his career.

Tallon Griekspoor rises to new career-high ranking of No. 21 after a round of 16 finish in Bercy. France's Ugo Humbert also climbs to a personal-best ranking of No. 23. Russia's Roman Safiullin earned the biggest win of his life in Paris when he knocked out Alcaraz in the second round. He cracks the Top 40 for the first time.

British rising star Jack Draper climbs to 82nd in the new rankings after winning the Bergamo Challenger, while Germany's Maximilian Marterer re-enters the Top 100 after a runner-up finish at the Ismaning Challenger (up to 97th).
