Wimbledon champion, Djokovic named 10th best tennis player

Novak Djokovic has moved into 10th place in the ATP Rankings after winning Wimbledon for a fourth time.

On Sunday, Djokovic registered a straight-sets victory over Kevin Anderson to claim his 13th Major crown and his first since the French Open in 2016.

The Serb is now one behind American great Pete Sampras in terms of Slam titles, with contemporary rivals Rafael Nadal (17) and Roger Federer (20) out in front and still in the form to win more.

Rafael Nadal remains at number one but now holds an advantage of 2,230 points over Roger Federer, while South African Anderson now finds himself at a career-high of fifth.

British number one Kyle Edmund has improved by one spot and now features in 16th place, but Andy Murray is now only regarded as British number 23 after dropping down to 839th courtesy of his quarter-final appearance at SW19 in 2017 coming off his record.

Cameron Norrie is ranked at 77th, while Dan Evans and James Ward continue to close in on a return to the top 300 with the pair now sitting at 323rd and 333rd respectively.
