Swiss tennis star Roger Federer dropped out of the ATP rankings entirely for the first time in the last 25 years on Monday. Similarly, Novak Djokovic has also dropped four spots to No. 7 just after winning Wimbledon for the seventh time. Federer has been in the singles rankings every week since he made his debut at age 16 in September 1997.
Roger Federer is currently tied for 803rd rank and previously held the record for most time at No. 1 until Novak Djokovic broke it. Federer held the 97th rank before the start of the 2022 Wimbledon but now has zero points because the rankings are based on a player’s results over the last year. Tennis fans haven’t seen the Swiss maestro since the Wimbledon quarter-finals last year.
Along with Djokovic, his finals opponent and the Wimbledon runner-up Nick Kyrgios also dropped from No. 40 to No. 45 despite reaching the first Grand Slam final because of WTA and ATP’s decision to not award any ranking points for Wimbledon in response to the All England Club’s ban on athletes from Russia and Belarus over the war in Ukraine.
The top three players in the rankings haven’t seen any changes in their position. Whereas Stefanos Tsitsipas has jumped up the fifth spot which also propelled Casper Ruud and Carlos Alcaraz one spot up. Like the top three, Andrey Rublev and Félix Auger-Aliassime also held their ranking at the eighth and ninth positions while Jannik Sinner jumped up to the tenth position.
