Djokovic tops Men’s ATP Rankings Despite Australian Open Exit

2022 Australian Open - Men’s Singles Championship Odds

At the onset of the 2022 Australian Open was a raging controversy regarding Novak Djokovic.  After several weeks of drama, the world’s top-ranked player was deported out of Australia.  Djokovic filed appeals to enable him to compete with the Tennis betting Lines.  But the political pressure was too much for the leaders of Australia, who have imposed strict limitations on their own citizens.  There was no way Australian political leaders could have let Djokovic compete without a COVID vaccination.  Thus, Daniil Medvedev was the betting favorite to win the 2022 Australian Open.

Top Men’s ATP Ranked Players

Djokovic Tops the Charts Despite Australian Deportation

First on the ATP rankings remains Novak Djokovic.  There is nothing new about Djokovic’s top online sportsbook status as the top-ranked male player in professional tennis.  Djokovic has been on top of the ATP charts since February 3, 2020.  Additionally, he has spent a total of 355 weeks of his career as the number one ranked player in the ATP.

Djokovic, age 34, has made a total of over $154 million in prize money.  He is the all-time leader in earnings for a men’s professional tennis player.  In sum, Djokovic has a career singles record of 989-199.  His winning percentage is .832.

On the whole, Djokovic has a total of 86 ATP singles titles, and a record 37 Masters events wins.  Further, Djokovic is the only player of the Open Era to achieve a double career Grand Slam to go with a non-calendar year Grand Slam.  He is the only player to complete the career Golden Masters on the ATP Tour.  In fact, Djokovic has done that two times.

Unfortunately, Djokovic was disqualified from competing in his best Grand Slam event.  Djokovic has won the Australian Open nine times.  He was the 3-time defending champion entering this year.  Also, Djokovic has two French Open, six Wimbledon, and three US Open championships.

Of course, last September, Djokovic had the chance to make history with a calendar-year Grand Slam.  All he needed was a win at the US Open.  But he was defeated by the #2 ranked ATP player, Daniil Medvedev.  Later this year, Djokovic will defend Grand Slam titles at the French Open and Wimbledon.

Daniil Medvedev Makes His Climb

Second-ranked Daniil Medvedev, age 25, is the next dominant player with the Tennis Betting odds.  Medvedev already has won $22 million for his career.  He was ranked behind Djokovic for the first time on March 15, 2021.  Since then, he regained the #2 spot on the ATP on January 17, 2022.  Medvedev is in search of his second Grand Slam title.  He finished as the runner-up at the 2021 Australian Open.  His win over Djokovic at the US Open put him on the map.  Accordingly, he is now a familiar name with casual gamblers.

So far this year, Medvedev has a record of 3-1.  His career record is 225-100 with 13 titles.

Alexander Zverev Seeks Opportunity

Thus far in his career, Alexander Zverev, age 24, is best known for his runner-up finish at the 2020 US Open.  Zverev has been ranked 3rd in the ATP charts as far back as November 2017.  But he has never been able to advance beyond that with the Tennis Betting Lines.  Zverev has a career record of 315-142 and has 19 career titles.

Overall, Zverev has had some good runs at Grand Slam events but with no cigar.  He was a semi-finalist in the 2020 Australian Open and 2021 French Open.  Wimbledon remains his worst Grand Slam venue with 4th-round finishes in 2017 and 2021.
