Novak Djokovic untouchable until February 27 – the first world tennis player before a historical record
The Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic е record holder with 375 weeks on the men's ATP list. In both competitions, the legendary German tennis player is currently on top Steffi Graf, who was first on the women's WTA-list for exactly 377 weeks.
Everyone is expecting Djokovic to set a new absolute record soon, more precisely on February 27 of this year, when the ATP will publish the list for that week.
Carlos Alcaraz (Spain) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) will not be able to threaten his first position until that Monday. Both will return to the court next week, at the tournaments in Buenos Aires and Rotterdam.
Tsitsipas is defending the final in the Netherlands, while Alcaraz will then have 500 points deducted for the title he won in Rio de Janeiro last season.
On the same day, Djokovic will be stripped of just 90 points, which he won in Dubai 2022, when he was eliminated in the quarterfinals.
