Djokovic stays top despite Vienna loss
Serbian professional tennis player Novak Djokovic is currently ranked world No. 1 in men’s singles tennis by the Association of Tennis Professionals despite his surprise defeat to lucky loser Lorenzo Sonego in Vienna last week.
Djokovic made his return to the court in Austria having not played since Roland Garros and has now spent 293 weeks as the world’s best player, edging closer to Roger Federer’s record of 310.
The Serb 17-time Grand Slam winner is virtually guaranteed to equal Pete Sampras’s record of securing a year-ending top ranking for the sixth time with second-placed Rafael Nadal unlikely to play at Sofia this month.

1. Novak Djokovic (SRB) 11830 pts
