A day after Roger Federer became just the second 40-something to rank in the Top 10 in ATP or WTA rankings history, Novak Djokovic achieves another big milestone for the Big 3—the Serb, who already has the record for most weeks at No. 1 in ATP rankings history, now has the second-most weeks at No. 1 in either ATP or WTA rankings history.
Djokovic kicks off his 333rd career week at No. 1 on the ATP rankings today, surpassing Martina Navratilova’s 332 career weeks at No. 1 on the WTA rankings.
Now only one player, male or female, has spent more career weeks at No. 1 on either the ATP or WTA rankings than Djokovic: Steffi Graf.
