Nov 21, 2023

In the world of doubles tennis, Croatian master Ivan Dodig has ended the year as the 2nd player in the world. He won a total of 6,620 points, just 510 less than the first-placed American Austin Krajicek. Despite falling on the last step in Adelaide and Eastbourne, Dodig and Krajicek won five tournaments together this year: Rotterdam, Monte-Carlo (Masters), Roland Garros, Queen’s and Beijing.

Meanwhile, Indian Rohan Bopanna is set to end the year as the third-ranked doubles player in the world. His partner Matthew Ebden will finish in fourth place. Along with Horacio Zeballos, Rajeev Ram, Joe Salisbury, Wesley Koolhof, Neal Skupski and Marcel Granollers, Bopanna is one of several players who will end the year in the Top 10. However, Mate Pavić and Nikola Mektic have fallen out of the rankings after ending their partnership a few months ago.

In singles competition, Novak Đoković once again dominated another season and finished atop the rankings. Carlos Alcaraz, Danilo Medvjedev, Jannik Sinner and Andrej Rubljov all finished behind him in second place or higher. Borna Ćorić ended his year as the 37th tennis player in the world while Borna Gojo came in at number 72. Marin Čilić dropped out of the Top 500 altogether.
