Novak remains the world’s number one tennis player


Despite Jannik Sinner’s success in the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic is still the leading player on the international stage.

The 36-year-old Serbian currently has 9,855 points in the ATP rankings, followed by Carlos Alcaraz (9,255 points), Daniil Medvedev (8,765 points) and Sinner (8,310 points).

However, Sinner remains fourth in the rankings, but he is only 945 points away from Alcaraz in second place and 455 points behind Medvedev.

The young Italian came up with a brilliant performance in the Australian Open after finishing with Andrey Rublev (quarter-final), Djokovic (semi-final) and Medvedev (final) to hold up the silverware on the Rod Laver Court.

“Bravo, Jannik. You definitely deserved it,” Djokovic shared on social media after Sinner collected his first Grand Slam title.

Rafael Nadal also congratulated him.

“Congratulations, Jan! What an incredible tournament and spectacular victory for you, your team, family and country,” wrote the Spaniard.
