The record for the most weeks spent at the top of the rankings (373) and year-end No. 1 finishes are both held by Novak Djokovic (7). The Serbian will once more rewrite the history books on Monday.
Djokovic will return to the top of the world rankings after winning the Australian Open on Sunday, making the largest rise in tennis history between two editions of the Pepperstone ATP Rankings (since 1973). The Serbian will advance from No. 5 in the world to No. 1.
The four-spot rise represents a greater leap than the three-spot ascent that Carlos Alcaraz (12 September 2022), Pete Sampras (11 September 2000), Andre Agassi (5 July 1999), and Carlos Moya previously achieved (15 March 1999).
