PARIS, France – Djokovic extended his reign at the top of the ATP rankings to 370 weeks, while Rafael Nadal fell to the fifth position.
The Spaniard was remove in the last 16 of the Italian Open and was return by Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece. They advanced to the final before being beat in straight sets by Djokovic.
The Serb has now spent 60 weeks at the top of the rankings, outlasting Roger Federer, who won the Italian Open for the sixth time (310). Nadal ranks sixth all-time in career wins with 209 victories.
Djokovic is confident of top seeding in Roland Garros, which begins on Sunday, and will hold the position for at least two weeks.
So, Casper Ruud of Norway climbs up two places to seventh after reaching the semi-finals in Rome. In contrast, Italian Matteo Berrettini drops out after undergoing surgery on his right hand at the end of March and missing the French Open.
