The mantle of world No.1 in tennis is something every player aspires for but few ever achieve. When it comes to men's singles, only a handful of names have held top spot over the past two decades. But a new generation of talent is coming through with young players pushing their way up the rankings. It has, however, aided numerous players in their ascent up the ATP ranking ladder. Let us have a rigorous look at it.

1. Novak Djokovic

ATP Ranking: Top 10 Men's Tennis player in the world

The Serbian maintains a commanding lead as world No. 1 despite exiting the Australian Open 2024 at the semi-final stage. Novak Djokovic has 9,990 ranking points. From his desire to become the first player to win all four grand slams and a gold medal in the same year to his abrupt departure from Melbourne, plenty of things have taken place. But one thing has remained constant: his ranking. Djokovic also holds the record for the oldest player ever to be ranked No. 1 in ATP or WTA rankings history. 

2. Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner’s surge to the top of the ATP Rankings continued at the Miami Open presented by Itau, where the 22-year-old Italian charged to his second ATP Masters 1000 crown. He has 8,860 ATP ranking points. Having already won his first Grand Slam at the Australian Open 2024 and an ATP 500 in Rotterdam in Rotterdam, the Italian’s third tour-level triumph of the year has lifted him above rival Carlos Alcaraz to a career-high No. 2 ATP ranking position. Sinner dropped just one set en route to the title at Hard Rock Stadium, where he became the first Italian to claim multiple Masters 1000 trophies. 

3. Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz holds the NO. 3 position in the new ATP ranking list with 7,345 points. In 2024, Alcaraz has a new record in his sights at the Mutua Madrid Open. Nobody has yet managed to string together three titles in the Spanish capital. Nadal came closest after his consecutive wins in 2013 and 2014, followed by a runner-up finish the following year. Alcaraz can win on any surface at any time. The only question marks for him right now are his body, with a few niggling injuries slowing his momentum. When he’s fit, though, he’s a physical beast and not afraid of anyone.

4. Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev’s injury absence saw him miss the Qatar Open, a title he won last year. Hence, he dropped 250 points to hold the NO. 4 position. He has a tough task ahead of him with a host of points to defend. He won the Dubai Tennis Championships and Miami Masters last year and finished runner-up at Indian Wells. While a big gap means he would not be dropping to World No.5 anytime soon, he would want to close the gap on the top 3 and get back up there.
