Serbia’s iconic tennis figure, Novak Djokovic, has lost his position at the top of the UTR rankings. The 36-year-old, widely considered the greatest player in the Open era with 24 Grand Slam titles, experienced a setback in the Australian Open, exiting in the semifinals after a defeat to Italy’s Jannik Sinner with a score of 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-3.

Following his defeat in the Australian Open, Djokovic has surrendered his leading position in the UTR rankings, now settling at the second spot. Jannik Sinner, the Italian player who secured victory over Djokovic in the tournament, has now claimed the top spot in the rankings.

In the past, Djokovic had been a proponent of UTR rankings, emphasizing them as the optimal means to assess a player’s advancement. He expressed his endorsement by stating, “The UTR Rating is the best way to measure yourself against all other players regardless of their age or skill level.”

Despite the shift in UTR rankings, Djokovic remains unaffected in the ATP rankings, maintaining his position as the number one player. The upcoming period until the Indian Wells tournament will be intriguing to observe, considering Djokovic’s absence from tennis activities during this time. It remains to be seen whether he can sustain his top position in the ATP rankings in the coming months.
