Novak Djokovic hits a double milestone in his record reign at No. 1 this week—not only is it his 85th consecutive week at No. 1 on the ATP rankings since he took it back from Rafael Nadal on February 3rd, 2020, it’s also his 360th career week at the top spot.

He’s now exactly 50 weeks ahead of previous record-holder Roger Federer.

360: Novak Djokovic
310: Roger Federer
286: Pete Sampras
270: Ivan Lendl
268: Jimmy Connors
209: Rafael Nadal
170: John McEnroe
109: Bjorn Borg
101: Andre Agassi

Djokovic is now the only player in ATP rankings history to have two separate stints of 85 or more consecutive weeks at No. 1, having also spent 122 straight weeks at the top spot from July 7th, 2014 to November 6th, 2016.

None of these numbers include the 22 weeks the ATP rankings were frozen between March and August in 2020.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion’s No. 1 ranking could come under threat next week—if Daniil Medvedev wins Acapulco, he’ll ascend to the top spot on February 28th.

Djokovic is scheduled to make his 2022 debut in Dubai next week.

Djokovic is scheduled to return to the tour next week at the ATP 500 in Dubai, where he's a five-time champion.

Anett Kontaveit rises to new career-high of No. 6 after St. Petersburg title
Kontaveit has been one of the hottest players on the women's tour over the last six months, winning 38 of 44 matches—and 5 of the 11 tournaments she’s played—since the week before the US Open. She went into that stretch ranked No. 30, and now, after her latest title run in St. Petersburg, she jumps over Iga Swiatek, Maria Sakkari and Garbine Muguruza, rising from No. 9 to a new personal best of No. 6.

That 38-6 record includes a 20-0 run indoors—the longest indoor winning streak on the women’s tour since Justine Henin won 22 in a row from 2007 to 2010.

The Estonian could easily climb even higher up the Top 10 over the next little while, too—with 4,241 ranking points right now, she’s only 188 points behind No. 5 Paula Badosa and 211 points behind No. 4 Karolina Pliskova.

Americans Jessica Pegula, Jenson Brooksby break into new ranking classes
Two of the top players from the U.S. break new ground this week, with Pegula rising from No. 16 to No. 14, her Top 15 debut, and Brooksby jumping from No. 54 to No. 45, his Top 50 debut. Pegula, who reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open for the second straight year a few weeks ago, didn’t play this past week, but moves up after there was some other movement on the WTA rankings. The 21-year-old Brooksby reached the second ATP final of his blossoming career last week in Dallas.

Other players reaching new career-highs this week include US Open champion Emma Raducanu, who inches up from No. 13 to No. 12, and American No. 1 Taylor Fritz, who goes from No. 19 to No. 17 after reaching the quarterfinals in Dallas.

And a bit further down the ATP rankings, two Top 100 debuts: Jiri Lehecka of the Czech Republic soars from No. 137 to No. 95 after a breakthrough week in Rotterdam, reaching the first ATP semifinal of his career at the ATP 500 event; and Francisco Cerundolo moves up from No. 107 to No. 100 after reaching the quarterfinals in Buenos Aires, joining No. 80-ranked younger brother Juan Manuel Cerundolo in the Top 100.
