ATP Rankings: How long has Novak Djokovic held the number-one ranking in tennis?
Novak Djokovic will be participating at the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships this week after regaining the number one ranking spot in the ATP.
Tenis and Novak Djokovic should be a synonym. The two should be interchangeable. The Serbian cemented his claim as the GOAT of the sport after winning the Australian Open and tying Nadal’s 22 Gran Slam Title record.
Because of his win in Australia, the Serbian jumped to number one at the ATP ranking, a place he has earned many times. He holds the record for the most times as a number one and for the most weeks as number one.
The tennis world hasn’t been fair to Nole. The adulation of Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer has frequently obscured the accomplishment of the Serbian. His style is less flashy like Rafa and less pretty like Roger, but often more efficient and consistent than the Spaniard or the Swiss.
How long has Novak Djokovic held the number-one spot in the ATP raining?
The Serbian ruled the standings between July 7, 2014, and October 31, 2016. Novak Djokovic has held the World No. 1 for a record-setting 378 weeks. He recently beat Stefi Graff’s previous record of 377 after winning the Australian Open in 2023.
