Alcaraz Cuts Djokovic’s Lead As De Minaur Rises Into Top 10 In Latest ATP Rankings

January 8, 2024 By Score More Staff Novak Djokovic, the formidable force in men's tennis, has seen his substantial lead in the ATP Rankings slightly trimmed after opting to skip the Adelaide International tournament.

However, the Serbian team was eliminated in the quarterfinals, and Djokovic earned only 60 points in the mixed-gender team competition, defending 250 points from the previous year. As a result, Djokovic's lead over Carlos Alcaraz has now narrowed to 2,200 points, setting the stage for a potentially riveting competition at the upcoming 2024 Australian Open. Alcaraz, along with Daniil Medvedev and Jannik Sinner, won't be partici...

The medical miracle behind Novak Djokovic’s Australian Open win

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley said Novak Djokovic played at the Grand Slam event with a muscle tear of three centimetres in his left hamstring along the way to winning the championship. “He gets a bad rap, but at the end of the day, I don't think anyone can question his athleticism. This guy, I did see, he had a three centimetre tear in his hammy,'' Tiley said in an interview with SEN Sportsday. “The doctors are ... going to tell you the truth,'' Tiley said. “I think there was a lot of speculation of whether it was true or not. It's hard to believe that someone can do what they do with those types of injuries. But he's remarkable.'' Djokovic won the trophy at Melbourne Park on Sunday by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets for a record-extending 10th title the...

By Meredith Cash Novak Djokovic is undoubtedly one of the top tennis players in the history of the sport. But is he the greatest of all time? Stefanos Tsitsipas — the world's third-ranked player, who lost a straight-set thrashing to Djokovic in Sunday's Australian Open final — sure thinks so. "He's the greatest that has ever held a tennis racket, for sure," the Tsitsipas said of Djokovic in a speech during the trophy ceremony. "I've had the privilege to play a lot of difficult, high-intensity matches, but I'd like to say one more time that Novak brings the best out of me and these other matches have been working my entire life for [this]," he continued, adding: "I admire what you have done for our sport. I think you make me a better player when I'm on the court, so thank you." ht...
