The success at the ATP 250 in Adelaide and the 10th title at the Australian Open returned the throne of the ATP Ranking to Novak Djokovic. The Serbian champion already holds the all-time record, in any case. There are 375 weeks that he has spent as number one in the world.
7 seasons finished at the top of the standings (2011,2012,2014,2015,2018,2020,2021). The numbers listed above acquire even more value if you think that as many as 151 of these, he achieved them after turning 30. A longevity monster Nole, who also leads in this particular stat.
On the second step of the podium is Rafa Nadal, record holder together with the Balkan champion in the number of Grand Slams, a good 22. Rafa was in the lead for 68 weeks. The American Andrè Agassi takes third place on the podium.
Just below is another icon, Federer with 25. Behind them are two other tennis legends, Ivan Lendl and Jimmy Connors at 23 and 17 respectively. The Scottish Andy Murray closes this interesting ranking, capable of achieving the most coveted record in the era of the Big Three.

Nole’s super first part of the season
This first glimpse of the season has sent a clear message to the tennis world.
Novak Djokovic is back and eager to take back everything he was denied in 2022. Last year he had two faces for the Serbian star player. On the one hand, the media lynching for not having undergone the vaccine against the Coronavirus, a decision which was followed by the exclusion from some of the most important events of the circuit.
On the other hand, the victory of Wimbledon, the Internationals of Italy and his 6th master title at the ATP Finals. Djokovic wants to make 2023 a historic year, which he has already touched in 2021. If he wins the remaining three Slams, he would hold the extraordinary recognition of the Calendar Grand Slam.
We recall that Djokovic will cannot play the Indian Wells and the Miami Open ATP Masters 1000s, while he will be able to play the US Open 2023, after the last season ban.
