Novak Djokovic overtook Roger Federer for the first time in this unique ranking after his victory over Rafael Nadal at the All England Club on Sunday.
Despite losing to Nadal in the final of the Australian Open to the Serbian champion, who had just won his 21st Grand Slam title, the Spaniard had a strong start to the season, winning titles at both the Australian Open and Roland Garros.
Without a chance to face Kyrgios in the semifinals, the Mallorcan had to give up on his Grand Slam goal. In actuality, he was forced to resign because of an abdominal ailment. A resumption of the battle for Slam supremacy will take place at the US Open, where Nadal is certain to be present, but Djokovic’s participation remains in question.
American officials have no plan of easing access limits in the future weeks, according to information obtained by The Telegraph from sources in the United Kingdom, and the Belgradean government has repeated that it has no intention of vaccinating its citizens.

On Instagram, Patrick Mouratoglou posted a video in which he referred to the perennial sports struggle between Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal.

Roger, who will turn 41 on December 31st, plans to play in the season finale of the Laver Cup, which will be his final match before retirement. It would be fantastic if he won another Grand Slam. Similarly, Rafael Nadal is playing the best tennis of his career.
At Roland Garros, he beat Novak in four sets despite still being hampered by nagging injuries. They’ll all have a harder time winning Slams as time goes on. There are a plethora of newcomers eager to fill their shoes.
Majors will be approached by Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner. At the US Open, Daniil Medvedev already has a title to his name. Nick Kyrgios, Matteo Berrettini, and Stefanos Tsitsipas have also come close to making it to the final. Is it all connected, though, to Slams? More Masters 1000s have been won by Novak than anybody else.
Only Rafa has won an Olympic singles gold medal. Roger is the all-time leader in ATP Finals victories. The most ATP championships have been won by Roger. The GOAT title is a matter of how many people you can beat “For further information, please see the following link:
