Nadal, who along with Federer won two majors in 2017, claims the top spot and finishes as the year-end No.1 for the fourth time. Federer, 36, is the ATP’s oldest year-end No.2 in history—he makes his 11th Top 2 finish.

Federer (7), and Nadal (6), were the ATP’s top two title leaders in 2017.


There were several other rankings milestones, highlighted by the ATP in a post today.

Grigor Dimitrov comes in at No.3, marking the first Top 3 maiden year-end finish since Novak Djokovic in 2007.

At No.4 Alexander Zverev is the first German to claim a spot in the year-end Top 10 since 2003, and at 20 he’s the youngest in the year-end Top 4 since Djokovic in 2007.

Zverev and brother Mischa are also part of the first brother tandem to rank in the ATP’s year-end Top 35 since 1991.

At No.5 Dominic Thiem is the first Austrian to rank in the year-end Top 5 since Thomas Muster in 1996, while David Goffin (7) is the first Belgian to ever rank in the ATP’s year-end Top 10.

Missing out on the Top 10 due to injury were Djokovic (12), Andy Murray (16) and Kei Nishikori (22).

Notes and Numbers

According to ATP Media Info, France leads all countries with 10 players in the Top 100.

There were a record 43 thirtysomethings in the ATP’s Top 100, with 38-year-old Ivo Karlovic the oldest at No.80 in the world.

Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic made the ATP’s biggest jump inside the Top 100. He rose 203 spots to finish at No.34 in the world.
