Going into any Grand Slam, with so many points up for grabs, there are always opportunities for players to make breakthroughs on the rankings, and No. 1 is even on the line sometimes.

That was the case for both the men’s and women’s No. 1 rankings at Wimbledon this year: Daniil Medvedev would have become No. 1 had he won the title, or if he reached the final and Novak Djokovic lost before the final; and Aryna Sabalenka would have become No. 1 had she won the title and Ashleigh Barty lost before the semifinals.

But on Tuesday, that all went away.

Having led by two sets to one when rain suspended play on Monday, Medvedev came back to complete his fourth-round match against Hubert Hurkacz on Tuesday and ended up going down in five, 6-2, 6-7 (2), 6-3, 3-6, 3-6, ending his hopes of taking No. 1, as he had to at least reach the final.

Later in the day, Barty cruised through her quarterfinal match against fellow Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, 6-1, 6-3, and is now through to her first Wimbledon semifinal. Because Sabalenka needed Barty to lose before the semifinals to have a shot at No. 1, her hopes are ended, too.

Djokovic will begin his 329th career week at No. 1 next Monday, Barty her 84th.
