Novak Djokovic extends No 1 lead in rankings; Serena Williams out of top 10
- Novak Djokovic made it 329 weeks as world number one
- Currently, he is almost 2,000 points ahead of World No 2 Daniil Medvedev
- Serena Williams crashed out of the top 10 for the first time in more than two years
Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic made it 329 weeks as world number one after collecting his third Grand Slam title of the year. Following his exploits at the SW19, he still holds the World No. 1 ranking, according to the new ATP rankings that were released on Monday.
Before heading to Wimbledon and eventually claiming it, he had already lifted the Australian and French Open. Currently, he is almost 2,000 points ahead of Daniil Medvedev, who still occupies the number two spot.
Italian Matteo Berrettini, who appeared in his maiden Wimbledon final and lost to Djokovic in four sets, moved up one place to 8 while the Swiss maestro Roger Federer, who spent 310 weeks at number one in the past, dropped a place to nine.
Hubert Hurcacz, who toppled Federer and became the first Pole to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon, moved up seven places to be placed on 11.
Two Canadians - Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov - also saw a steady rise, respectively. While Auger-Aliassime climbed up four places to be placed at 15, Shapovalov made inroads to find himself in the top 10.
In the WTA top 10 ranking, American Serena Williams crashed out of the top 10 for the first time in more than two years, according to the new rankings.
The 39-year-old, who has spent 319 weeks at number one, dropped rankings points at Wimbledon, after withdrawing with injury from her first-round match with Aliaksandra Sasnovich. In the last edition of the Wimbledon, she was a finalist.
Due to her withdrawal, Williams crashed eight places to 16th place, her lowest ranking since January 2019.
Former World No 1 Simona Halep also took a tumble to ninth after injury ruled her out of defending the Wimbledon title she won in 2019.
Karolina Pliskova, the losing finalist, moved from 13th to 7th place.
