Jannik Sinner’s anticipated rise to world No. 1 was officialized on Monday when the ATP released its new rankings, making him the first Italian ever to hold the top spot.

Sinner reached the semifinals of the French Open where he was beaten by eventual champion Carlos Alcaraz who climbed to second, nudging 37-year-old Djokovic, who has been No. 1 since last September, down to third.

Djokovic holds the record for the number of weeks spent at No.1 — his tally of 428 is 118 weeks more than next best Roger Federer.


The German Alexander Zverev, who was runner-up to Alcaraz in Paris, remains in fourth place, ahead of Russian pair Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev.
