ATP Rankings: Djokovic returns to No. 1 spot after US Open title, Alcaraz slips to second

Novak Djokovic began a record-extending 390th week as the top-ranked player in the latest ATP Rankings released on Monday.

Djokovic needed to win just his first-round match at the US Open to replace Carlos Alcaraz. The 36-year-old Serbian went on to win his fourth title in New York on Sunday, while also equalling Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 Grand Slams.

Medvedev, who beat Alcaraz in the semifinals before losing to Djokovic in the summit clash, stayed at third.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev moved up two spots each to fifth and sixth, respectively while Jannik Sinner slipped to seventh.
