Congrats to Novak Djokovic fans. The Miami title didn’t just put him ahead of Andre Agassi with 18 career Masters 1000 titles, but it also vaulted him to first place in the 2014 ATP Ranking, a spot Stanislas Wawrinka has held every week since his Australian Open title.
Miami and Australian Open finalist Rafael Nadal is second followed by the Swiss duo of Wawrinka and Roger Federer.
Djokovic is still ranked No. 2 in the 52-week ranking behind Rafael Nadal by about 2,000 points, a gap that the Serb could make up with a very strong clay season and a poor run by Nadal.

1 Djokovic, Novak (SRB), 2,690
2 Nadal, Rafael (ESP), 2,595
