No points having been awarded during the Wimbledon tournament won for the fourth year in a row by Novak Djokovic, the Serb fell to 7th place in the world rankings on Monday. Forfeited for his semi-final against Kyrgios, Rafael Nadal took the opportunity to regain third place.
Novak Djokovic big winner but also… big loser of Wimbledon. The day after his seventh title on the London turf – the fourth in a row for the Serb, who has not lost on the Center Court since his defeat in the final in 2013 against Andy Murray – the champion who now has 21 Grand Slam tournaments on his record (one length ahead of Roger Federer and one length behind Rafael Nadal) paradoxically appears as one of the main victims of this Wimbledon having awarded no points in the ATP ranking. His victory thus lost 2000 points to the former world number 1, who at the same time fell to seventh position in the hierarchy while Daniil Medvedev, absent in London (the organization had banned Russians and Belarusians from participating in this edition ) retains control, ahead of the German Alexander Zverev, also forced to give up, but through injury.
Nadal back on the podium
As for Rafael Nadal, who reached the semi-finals but forfeited his match against Nick Kyrgios (45th, -5) due to an abdominal tear, he took advantage of Djokovic’s poor operation (lost four places) to regain the podium, in third place. Beaten in the final by the Serb last year but tested positive for Covid-19 this year before the start of the tournament, Matteo Berrettini also fell four places and now occupies 15th place. On the French side, if Gaël Monfils (21st, +2) is still ahead of Benjamin Bonzi (48th, -1), the main beneficiaries of this update are Arthur Rinderknech (55th, +7), Hugo Gaston (58th, +8) and Richard Gasquet (66th, +3), who had not gone so far in the British capital since 2016. Beaten in the third round by David Goffin, Ugo Humbert plunged to 129th position.
