In fact, since 2018 Novak Djokovic has not been out of first and second place in the world rankings. 2017 was a difficult year for the Serbian: decisions about his team led him to a crisis, to the point where he has not won a Grand Slam title since 2011.
However, in early 2018, the old look seemed to be back, with Marianne Vajda returning as manager. This “new” change brought Djokovic back, both in the number of Grand Slam titles and in reference to the ATP rankings.
He started the year at number 14 in the world, but the progression of months and loss of championships brought him to 22nd place in the standings. However, Wimbledon changed the fortunes of the Serbian champion: the victory over Kevin Anderson led to the return of Djokovic.
Victory in Cincinnati first and victory at the US Open later gave Novak Djokovic third place in the standings, and it doesn’t stop there. Another Masters 1000 win, which was in Shanghai, brought the Serb back to second place.
However, the return to the top comes after the Paris Bercy 1000: despite losing in the final to Karen Khachanov, Djokovic is once again number one in the world.
