In addition to winning his 5th Miami Open title yesterday, Novak Djokovic hit another milestone in the last 24 hours. Djokovic, who’s been the ATP’s No. 1 since July 7, is now tied with rival Rafael Nadal at 141 weeks on top of the rankings.
With Nadal now ranked No. 5 and out of the No. 1 mix for the near future, Djokovic’s next target is John McEnroe at 170 weeks. He could reach McnEnroe if he stays on top at the end of October. Roger Federer leads all players at 302. To reach Roger, Djokovic would have to hold No. 1 for another 163 weeks, or just before the French Open in 2018!!
