After securing a record eighth Australian Open title, Novak Djokovic is once again back on top of the ATP rankings for the fifth time in his career.
Rafael Nadal had overtaken Djokovic in November and, at age 33, became the oldest year-end No. 1. But Rafa lost ranking points by getting eliminated in the Australian Open quarterfinals, by Thiem, one year after being the runner-up to Djokovic.
In the rankings, Roger Federer remained at No. 3, and Dominic Thiem went up one place to No. 4, with U.S. Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev sliding to No. 5.
