Pro Tennis accurately calculates the world rankings based on the last year’s performance. As a result, rankings have a special meaning at the end of the year. This is because the player with the best performance in that year naturally rises to the top of the world rankings at the end of the year. As in other sports, the best player is naturally determined without voting.

Novak Djokovic (34, Serbia, world No. 1) was recorded as the player who climbed the most to No. On the 7th, in the Paris Masters men’s singles semifinals of the men’s professional tennis (ATP) tour held in Paris, France, on the 7th, Hubert Hurkács (24, Poland, 10th) defeated 2-1 (3-6 6-0 7-6 <7-5>) ) was suppressed by With this, the ranking points that reached the semi-finals alone confirmed the first place in this season’s year-end rankings regardless of whether they won the final with Daniil Medvedev (25, Russia, 2nd place).

Following 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018, he climbed to the top of the rankings at the end of last year and jointly ranked first in this category with Pete Sampras (retired, US, 6 times). He beat Roger Federer (40, Switzerland) and Rafael Nadal (35, Spain, 5th), who formed the men’s tennis ‘big three’ with him in second place. In addition, this season, the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon, while winning three major titles, once again made the first place, rising to the highest ever in this category.

In March of this year, Djokovic broke two world ranking-related records this year, surpassing Federer’s record of 310 weeks for the longest time in the world, and maintaining the number one position for 348 weeks. Djokovic, who was born in 1987, increased his world record for the oldest year-end number one by one year.
