'I think will have been a shock to Roger Federer', says former ATP star

In addition to having swept Wimbledon and reached 20 Slams, the world number one Novak Djokovic confirms himself as the leader of the standings by reaffirming his points and keeping a gap on his opponents. Ranking that after the third Grand Slam of the year remains totally upset.

In the Top Ten Alexander Zverev returns to the top five, overcoming an increasingly difficult Thiem in the standings, Matteo Berrettini overtaking Roger Federer and returning to his Best Ranking of number 8 while the Swiss increasingly decreasing.

Excellent results from Shapovalov who returns to the Top Ten and above all from the Polish Hubert Hurkacz who with the Wimbledon semifinal gains 7 positions and moves close to eleventh place in the standings. Felix Auger Aliassime also did well, entering the 15 and reaching the Best Ranking while Bautista Agut, Monfils, Goffin and Ruud were down.

Stable Sinner at number 23 while Lorenzo Sonego gains a position. Great leap also for Fucsovics who falls in the 40 and gains nine positions, improves his Best Ranking Korda and Kyrgios also advances who returns to gain in the standings, recovers two positions and becomes number 58.

Musetti earns a position while a great jump for Ivashka who earns 16 places in the standings. New best ranking for Gianluca Mager who gains 4 positions and is number 73, Cecchinato and the eternal Andreas Seppi also do well, both gaining positions.

Becker comments on Roger Federer

In a recent article, tennis legend Boris Becker wrote that this was perhaps the last time fans have seen Roger Federer at the Wimbledon Championships. “I have the feeling that he will not be back at Wimbledon this time next summer after what happened this week, which I think will have been a shock to him,” mentioned Becker.

“I think Roger arrived here thinking everything was pretty much going to his plan, which was to recover from his knee problems, get fit on the clay, and put himself in a strong position to go very deep at SW19. I don’t believe that he came here deliberating when the best time is to retire, but he may well be doing so now.

The manner of his defeat to Hubert Hurkacz changed things,” highlighted the 6-time Grand Slam winner. Novak Djokovic was the center of the world’s attention last night. Fans, followers, and fellow tennis peers, as well as sports entities from all over the world, congratulated Novak on his emphatic win.

With back-to-back major titles for Novak, fans believe that the ‘Big 3’ debate has finally been settled. However, as far as the ‘G.O.A.T’s themselves are concerned, they are busy showering praises on each other.
