Djokovic returned to the top spot, and Van de Zandscholp finished 31st

Novak Djokovic is back at the top of the world rankings. The Serbian tennis player has not played in recent weeks because he was not allowed to enter the United States without a coronavirus vaccination. However, the 35-year-old Djokovic took first place in the ranking from Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz. It began its 381st week as No. 1 on Monday.

19-year-old Alcaraz won the Indian Wells Masters, but then his winning streak ended in Miami in the semifinals. As defending champion, the Spaniard missed out on the necessary points. This meant that he had to give up the number one spot to Djokovic again. The Spaniard and Serbian take turns at the top of the world rankings in the first months of the season. Djokovic will return to the ATP tour next week at the gravel tournament in Monte Carlo.

Botic van de Zandschulp got one place. The 27-year-old Veenendaler rose from No. 32 to No. 31. Van de Zandscholp reached the fourth round in Miami. This week, he’s taking part in the gravel championships in Marrakech, just like the Greek track Talon, which also secured a spot and is now No. 35 in the world.

Russia’s Daniil Medvedev won the Masters title in Miami, which moved him to fourth place in the world ranking. The 27-year-old Medvedev has already won four ATP titles this year, including in Rotterdam.
