Djokovic remains solid No. 1 despite surprising elimination in Vienna

Djokovic remains solid No. 1 despite surprising elimination in Vienna

Serbian Novak Djokovic remains firmly established at the top of world tennis despite his surprising elimination in the quarter-finals of the Vienna tournament, according to the ATP rankings published on Monday.

‘Djoko’, who conceded the toughest defeat of his career in a match with two winning sets against the Italian Lorenzo Sonego (6-2, 6-1), has 1,980 points more than the Spanish Rafael Nadal (N.2).

As the latter will presumably not participate in the Sofia tournament next week, Djokovic has everything going for him to finish 2020 as No. 1 for the sixth time in his career, as many times as Sampras (No. 1 between 1993 and 1998).

Sonego, defeated in the Vienna final by Russian Andrey Rublev, won ten places and is 32nd in the ranking, the best classification of his career.

But that was not the most spectacular progression in the Top 100 as South African Kevin Anderson rose 25 spots to 86th.

In the Top 20, Russian Daniil Medvedev, new 5th, and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, 6th, exchanged their positions.
