Novak Djokovic opened up the leadership of the ranking ATP after billing the Australian Open, in Melbourne, last weekend, facing the Russian Daniil Medvedev. With the title, the Serb went to 12,030 points and will keep the edge beyond March 8. With that, it will reach the 311 week mark as number 1, surpassing the record of 310 that belongs to the Swiss Roger Federer, currently in fifth place. Even before the Grand Slam in Melbourne, it was already known that Djoko would maintain the first place until the end of the tournament and would reach the 310-week mark at the top on the 1st of March. However, there was a possibility Rafael Nadal reduce the gap and try to take the Serb’s position for the next three weeks, a chance that no longer exists.

Daniil, in turn, entered the top-3 with the runner-up. In the update released on Monday, he rose from fourth to third place, his best career, overtaking Austrian Dominic Thiem. Now with 9,735 points, he left the tennis player from Austria behind with 9,125 and broke close to the Spanish Rafael Nadal in the fight for the second position. Eliminated in the quarterfinals by the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, the current number 2 in the world has only 115 points more.

The highest on Monday’s list was Russian Aslan Karatsev. Coming from qualifying, he reached the Australian Open semifinals, when he fell to Djokovic, and won 72 positions. It is now number 42 in the world. The good campaign in Melbourne, with a semifinal in an ATP 250 and the second round in the Australian Grand Slam, made the Brazilian Thiago Monteiro remain in the 74th place in the ATP ranking. He has 929 points and would gain a position were it not for Karatsev’s great performance.
