The 37-year-old Serbian, who is experiencing a complicated 2024 season without any title for the moment, holds the record for the number of weeks spent at the rank of world No.1 (428). He also has that of the oldest No.1 in history while Alcaraz, who reached this rank for the first time in September 2022 at the age of 19, is the youngest to have achieved it.

Beaten in the final in Paris by Alcaraz, the German Alexander Zverev retains fourth place ahead of the Russians Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev.

Australian Alex de Minaur returns to the best ranking of his career, at 9th in the world, after reaching the quarter-finals at Roland Garros.
