Poland Hurkacz climbed to two places and achieved rank number 10 after contesting in Indian wells in last week and eventually surpassed Federer who has moved to number 11 ranking.

Federer who won 20 Grand slam title with the last one being Australian Open which he won in 2017 and subsequently in last few years he has developed Knee Injury.

Norrie, who beat Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili on Sunday to become the first Briton to win the prestigious Indian Wells title, breaks into the top 20 at world number 15.

Let’s have a look at the complete list of top-ranked players in the Top 10 ranking since 2017 are as follows:

  1. Novak Djokovic (SRB) 11,430 pts
  2. Daniil Medvedev (RUS) 9,630
  3. Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE) 7,995
  4. Alexander Zverev (GER) 6,930
  5. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 5,635 (+1)
  6. Andrey Rublev (RUS) 5,560 (-1)
  7. Matteo Berrettini (ITA) 4,858
  8. Dominic Thiem (AUT) 3,815
  9. Casper Ruud (NOR) 3,615 (+1)
  10. Hubert Hurkacz (POL) 3,378 (+2)

The legendary Trio which consists of Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic have been the pinnacle of their careers in which Serbian is leading at the moment as both Nadal and Federer who have won 20 Grand Slam each has missed so many competitions due to injury. In Olympics 2020, the only player who took part was Djokovic who was considered favorite to win the title but was eventually knocked out from the contest. Taking about Indian tennis loads of work needs to be done to uplift it at a grand stage as the federation is doing little to promote sport in the country.

There are very few tournaments which include ATP and Challenger Open which is organized every year in India and due to pandemics even those few have been converted into meager numbers. A Country is known in Tennis when they produce good singles players, not by doubles players, unfortunately, we have produced only doubles players of late and our focus on producing singles players should be our priority.
