Thanks to the victory of the Davis Cup against Australia in the final, Italy achieved a tennis milestone which occurred for the first time in tennis history. The International Tennis Federation, which every week, after each competition, publishes the Davis Cup ranking, and which reflects the performances of the teams in the previous four seasons, with recent results having greater weight, has ranked Italy in first place in the ranking .

The historic success of the Italian national team against Australia, which allowed the trophy to be brought back to Italy after 47 years, earned the Italians the lead in the world rankings for the first time in their history.

Triumph and glory therefore for coach Filippo Volandri's team, who thanks to Jannik Sinner, in robotic mode, and the contribution of Lorenzo Sonego, Lorenzo Musetti, Matteo Arnaldi and Simone Bolelli, made Italy dream and achieved this new exciting goal.

Carlos Alcaraz's Spain and Novak Djokovic's Serbia are off the podium.

The historic and exciting milestone achieved by Italy

The new ranking drawn up by the ITF takes more into account the results of this latest edition of the Davis Cup.

Italy is therefore in the first place, gaining 5 positions with its second success in the history of the competition, reaching 535.63 points. Canada has therefore been overtaken, remaining in very close contact at 534.38 but losing first place after being eliminated in the quarter-finals against the surprise Finland, which pushes itself up to twelfth place.

Finalist Australia remains third, while Spain, fresh from failing to qualify for the Davis Cup Finals, loses two positions and settles just outside the podium. Novak Djokovic and his Serbia confirm the semi-finals of the last edition, gaining two positions and moving to 5th place.

Croatia and Great Britain lose positions, while Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and the United States keep their positions unchanged.
