    Re: Talk about Rankings (TAR :))

    Only 4 max per country, however. USA has 9 players currently in the top 56 of the WTA.

    Serena (8)
    Kenin (11)
    Keys (12)
    Riske (17)
    Anisimova (29)
    Stephens (36)
    Collins (51)
    Gauff (52)
    Brady (53)

    A quick overview. This is till pre-cutoff so movement and changes can/will happen.

    5 within the cutoff for Russia right now. Czechs have 6. And I think that's it as far as 4+ in top 56 goes.

    Is Pouille injured? That’s the first time I have seen his name in a while. Or is he just not getting past first rounds?

    Elbow injury. He had to pull out of ATP Cup and Aussie Open. Not sure if he has a projected return just yet.

    Sloane Stephens is ranked 96 in the race to Tokyo - she's got five months to keep herself in the top 100 basically.

    DJOKOVIC RETURNS TO NO. 1 IN FEDEX ATP RANKINGS




    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA — Serbia’s Novak Djokovic today returns to the top of the FedEx ATP Rankings for a fifth stint after capturing a record-extending eighth Australian Open title. It will be his 276th week at the top, replacing Rafael Nadal, who had overtaken him at No. 1 on 4 November last year.

    Djokovic, who has now been World No. 1 during nine of the past 10 seasons (2011-16, 2018-20), will break Roger Federer’s record for most weeks at No. 1 (310 weeks) if he stays at the top until 5 October.

    “That’s one of the two biggest goals, for sure. I mean, there is no secret in that,” said Djokovic, after winning in Melbourne.

    Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman, said, “Novak has had a faultless start to the season, leading Serbia to victory at the ATP Cup and capturing a record eighth Australian Open crown. He has proven yet again that he is the man to beat and his record in Australia is second to none. Many congratulations to Novak and his team on such impressive start to the year and his deserved return to World No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings.”

    Djokovic first ascended to No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings aged 24 on 4 July 2011 for a total of 53 weeks until 8 July 2012. The Serbian returned to top spot on three further occasions between 5 November 2012 and 6 October 2013 (48 weeks), from 7 July 2014 to 6 November 2016 (122 weeks) and from 5 November 2018 to 3 November 2019 (52 weeks).

    The 32-year-old Djokovic is unbeaten in 2020 with a perfect 13-0 match record, which includes helping Team Serbia clinch the inaugural ATP Cup trophy. His Australian Open win takes Djokovic’s Grand Slam championship tally to 17 (third in the all-time list behind Federer on 20 and Nadal on 19) and gives him a strong lead in the year-to-date FedEx ATP Race To London.
